In 2013, Governor Brown proposed full funding flexibility for local school districts. This new proposed legislation is called Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). The spirit behind LCFF is that the state should set key priorities for all students, but the local decisions are more likely to benefit students than a state-determined approach. One of the legal requirements of LCFF is that every district develop a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) that is approved by the district’s Board of Education. Once approved by the district’s Board of Education, the LCAP will then be submitted to the County Office of Education for approval. The LCAP is intended to be a comprehensive planning tool that focuses on student achievement. Meaningful engagement of parents, pupils, and other stakeholders is critical to the LCAP.
The LCAP requires that every school district in California draft goals that are aligned to the eight state priorities listed in Education Code, which are as follows: Student Engagement, Other Student Outcomes, Parental Involvement, Access to a Broad Curriculum, Common Core State Standards, Basic Services (Williams Compliance), School Climate, and Student Achievement. One or more of the eight state priorities are associated with the items listed in the needs assessment survey below.
Burbank Unified School District (BUSD) requests that you complete the survey below so that we can better meet the needs of all BUSD students. Your responses will be used as part of BUSD’s assessment of needs in the development of the LCAP. BUSD’s intent is to draft a plan that continues to support the high expectations for student achievement and success for all BUSD students. We thank you in advance for your participation and cooperation.
