The Lucerne Valley Unified School District is in the process of receiving input from stakeholders to develop its 2023-24 Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP is a tool for the school district to set goals, plan actions, and leverage resources to meet those goals to improve student outcomes.
Recently at the Lucerne Valley Elementary School’s annual Science Night, Lead Special Education Teacher Vici Miller handed out informational papers on the LCAP along with the LCAP Survey. The following is some of that information:
The district is maintaining our three LCAP goals. They are: 1) Students will receive a quality education. 2) Students are on track to graduate from high school prepared to enter college or the workforce. 3) Students will be engaged in a positive school climate.
