The Local Control and Accountability Plan is a three-year plan that links school districts’ spending to their specific goals for student achievement.
The plan is part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), the public school financing system introduced in California in 2013.
AUSD’s plan and information on past meetings is online here.
The local control model calls for engagement, through the parental advisory committee, from families, employees and other community members, including those representing students who are low-income and English Language Learners, as well as foster youth.
For the 2015 to 2016 school year, AUSD plans to include on the committee representatives from each school, as well as from the Parent Teacher Advisory Council and the District English Language Advisory Committee.
Seven “at-large” members will also be selected.
The committee meets several times a year.
Applications, available through the district’s website, at the district’s head office at 2060 Challenger Drive, and through the district’s school sites, are available in Arabic, Cantonese, English, Spanish, Tagalog, and Vietnamese and are due by 3 p.m. on October 16, 2015.
