Funding the Next Generation started a journey over two years ago to capture the public's growing understanding of the needs of children and youth, and the success of California's local children's funds in San Francisco and Oakland.

We asked: Can local children's funds become a way to ensure sustainable funding for services to children, youth and families?

Can the creation of local children's funds become a statewide movement?

We invite you to a statewide conference on May 9 at San Francisco State University to learn our findings and insights to date.  Register NOW to ensure a space.

Wednesday, 5/11: Free webinar in our Fix School Discipline Webinar Series

Who: Fix School Discipline

What: LCAP as a Tool to Meaningfully Invest in Students Webinar

Where: Register here https://attendee.gototraining.com/r/552757854719764481

When: Wednesday, May 11, 2016 from 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

It’s that time of the year again: time for school districts to finalize their Local Control Accountability Plans (LCAP). The LCAP should set out a plan for enhancing education for high needs students, and must specifically address investments related to school climate. The law requires targeting goals, actions, and services to meet the needs of all students, but what is the best way to create an LCAP that guides school districts to lasting positive results for those students?

Meaningfully Investing in Students will answer your questions about how to create an LCAP that:

- sets ambitious goals for improving school climate and student achievement

- plans effective, corresponding actions and services

- makes appropriate investments

This webinar will detail some of the best practices from LCAPs across California to help educators, community members, and advocates contribute to creating LCAPs that effectively improve education for all students, especially English learners, low-income students, and foster youth.
