Stakeholder Engagement

Summary of Stakeholder Engagement Process

Meetings were held throughout the 2020-2021 school year at the district level and at the individual sites.  Over 100 meetings took place to gather input and direct the next steps in the LCAP process.  In addition, surveys were provided to stakeholders, including our annual SART Survey to parents, a Climate Survey for employees, and the Student LCAP Survey.  Feedback is analyzed and recommendations for action/service modifications are considered by district leadership.

A Summary of Feedback

Feedback for the 2021-24 LCAP was collected from the LCAP Parent Advisory group on January 25, 2021. A follow-up LCAP Parent Advisory meeting was held on April 12, 2021. Individual school sites held LCAP feedback at their sites with parent groups, staff, and students. The theme around these meetings revolved around differentiated assistance for Foster Youth and Homeless, Children's Health Center, English Learner services, instructional coaches, and technology access. These meetings affirmed the actions and services in place and brainstormed other ways that services could be extended. Listed below are some additional feedback we received at both our LCAP parent advisory night, from employee groups, district meetings, and through the site feedback meetings that were held in the Spring 2021.

Aspects of the LCAP Influenced by Stakeholder Input

Throughout the engagement process, it was apparent that our English Learner, Low Income and Foster Parents/guardians are supportive of the District's current intervention and engagement efforts. While supporting the actions and services in place within the District currently, feedback was received related to areas that could benefit from additional, concerted efforts by educators in order to maximize achievement and success for all students. Based on feedback the following input was used to develop our 21-24 LCAP.

Funding for the operation of the Children's Health Center including the services of a Nurse Practitioner

Additional funding for technology and programs to support our neediest students

Addition of a coordinator for English Learner services to support professional learning and resources for English language acquisition

Purchase of iReady for reading

Addition of Special Ed. Program Specialist to work with unduplicated students in SSSA Office (to align with the Special Education Plan)

Elimination of action(s) or groups of actions.

Removed Student Resource Officers from LCAP

Changes to the level of proposed expenditures for one or more actions.

Additional intervention hours and push-in teacher time for elementary

Additional stipends at the intermediate and high school levels to support intervention classes

Addition of area coaches to support professional development in math, ELA, and technology and to support learning loss associated with COVID-19

Addition of more personnel in the SSSA Office to work with Foster Youth and Homeless and other unduplicated student counts

Additional support for implementation of LCAP programs and funding
It was felt by stakeholders that if the District was able to effectively address the identifying need areas we would be successful in increasing student success, decreasing student discipline problems and narrowing the achievement gap.
