San Ramon Valley school officials Tuesday formally presented the district's proposal for achieving top-priority improvement goals during the next three years.
The district's draft 2014-15 Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) outlines objectives, actions steps, expenditures and methods of assessing progress among areas such as facility maintenance, employee development, parent involvement, school climate and student performance.
LCAPs are required for local districts statewide under California's new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).
The San Ramon Valley's nearly seven-month LCAP development process included meetings with school site administrators, employee union representatives and community members, district officials told the school board Tuesday night during a sparsely attended public hearing in Danville.
Officials highlighted the district's 10 self-defined goals and described proposed action steps, expenditures and funding sources.
In one example, the draft LCAP proposes to address the objective of "restoring maintenance support to all school sites" by adding $190,920 in LCFF base funding toward hiring new custodians and using $1.5 million of base funding to hire maintenance staff, increase supplies and services, and fully implement a new work-order system.
The school board received no public input on the draft LCAP during the hearing -- the one parent in the audience for the half-hour presentation chose not to speak.
Board members are scheduled to consider final adoption of the LCAP during their June 24 meeting.
The nine other objectives outlined in the district's draft are:
* Recruit, hire, retain and develop the best and most highly qualified candidates who are representative of the diversity of the district's student population.
* Provide standards-based instructional materials (including technology) for all students and teacher professional development.
* Increase the percentage of students who demonstrate college, career and community readiness.
* Decrease the overall percentage of suspensions and expulsions as well as the disparity among subgroups.
* Increase the percentage of students who feel connected to and safe at school.
* Allocate funding to school sites to support implementation of school site plan goals and other necessary expenses.
* Expand course offerings to increase opportunities for all students.
* Narrow the achievement gap among all subgroups in the areas of English language arts and mathematics.
* Increase parent involvement among all subgroups.
