Superintendent's Message

Dear Stakeholders:

  

In 2019-20, as required by the state, we will be moving forward with implementation of our recently adopted Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP was written with the input of staff, parents, and community members and is designed to produce specific outcomes. The LCAP will guide our decision-making and enhance budget planning.

 

The LCAP has eight key state priorities that will drive our efforts. These are: Student Engagement; Student Achievement; Basic Services; Other Student Outcomes; Implementation of Common Core State Standards (CCSS); Parental Involvement; School Climate; and Course Access. The LCAP requires greater focus and accountability in meeting goals and outcomes.

 

In order to do so we will be providing continued professional development to guide our staff as we provide greater rigor and relevance in instruction and work to enhance relationships. We will also continue to build upon programs that have had success and add new programs to support our students.

 

In 2018-19 we added a state of the art STEM lab at the elementary school, became AVID certified at the Middle/High School, started a Multi Tiered Systems of Support initiative district wide, exited targeted assistance based on the California School Dashboard, and showed growth in proficiency in Language Arts and Math on the state tests district wide for the fourth consecutive year highlighted by a 7% proficiency growth in Math.

 

We have a lot to do and a lot to look forward to in 2019-20.

 

Respectfully,

 

Peter Livingston, Superintendent
