School District Needs Parent Input on Spending

The Las Virgenes Unified School District is requesting parent input regarding the allocation of state funds for local education. Beginning in the 2015-16 school year, the state will offer more spending flexibility and will no longer dictate how schools must spend their funds.

In an all-call and email blast that went out to the community Wednesday evening, the district released the following information:

Later this week, you will receive a parent survey by email. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey so we can consider your input as we move forward to develop our plan. 

A requirement of California’s new public education funding system, the LCAP Advisory Committee must meet to review the District’s education plan and assure resource alignment and budget priorities. This committee will be considering the results of surveys from teachers, students, and you…our parents. 

Parents who represent the groups listed below (identified by the State Department of Education) are encouraged to apply and help build increased understanding of the District’s commitment to provide excellent education to all students. 

If you can attend four half-day meetings at the District office in April and May 2014 (first meeting is April 2nd, 2014) and you have a passion to see our schools continue to strengthen services to students, please consider applying. 

To apply, send your name, student’s/s’ name, school/s, your email address and phone number to [email protected] by March 14, 2014. Also, please indicate the group(s) that you represent; 

Hispanic, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Asian, Black/African American, White/Caucasian, English Learners, Low Income (qualify for government’s free reduced lunch program).

There will be two informational meetings: Tuesday, May 13 at Lindero Canyon Middle School (6-7:30 p.m.) and Wednesday, May 14 at A.C. Stelle Middle School (6-7:30 p.m.). All parents and care-givers are welcome to attend.
