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.
