Morgan Hill Lawsuit vs CDE: Release of Student Data

CDE Lawsuit Affects Release of Student Data

 

A recent lawsuit against the California Department of Education (CDE) is impacting all school districts across the state.  As part of the lawsuit, CDE has been ordered by the court to provide to the court, the parties, their attorneys and consultants, with personally identifiable information.  The data includes personally identifiable information of children, including children with disabilities, children who requested an assessment or who were assessed for special education eligibility, and children who are attending, or who have attended, a California school at any time since January 1, 2008.

 

However, parents or guardians of students are able to object to the disclosure of their student’s information by submitting an objection to the court.  Parents can find more information regarding this lawsuit and how to object to the disclosure of their student’s information at the following website: www.cde.ca.gov/morganhillcase.  

 

To obtain the Objection to Disclosure Form please go to:http://www.cde.ca.gov/re/di/ws/documents/form2016jan26.pdf.  Note that the deadline to submit an objection to the court is April 1, 2016

LCFF/LCAP Information Points

LCFF or Local Control Funding Formula

LCAP or Local Control Accountability Plan

  • The Local Control Funding Formula is the new system of allocating State funds to districts.  It consists of Base, Supplemental and Concentration Grant Funding that allocates resources based on the LEA's pupil demographics.
  • The goal of LCFF is to reduce state bureaucracy and increase flexibility and accountability at the local level so that those closest to California's students make the decisions and ensure that pupil needs are met.
  • The funds must be spent to increase or improve services for low income, English Learners and Foster Youth as compared to services for all students.  Districts and schools with higher percentages of those populations of students will receive Supplemental and Concentration Grant Funds in addition to LCFF Base Grant Funds.
  • While there is some level of flexibility, LCFF requires each district to prepare an LCAP that describes for the district, and the schools within the district, goals and specific actions to achieve those goals.  The State requires these goals and actions are developed in each of the 8 State Priority Areas:  Student Achievement, Parent Involvement, Other Student Outcomes, Implementation of Common Core, Student Engagement, Course Access, School Climate, and Basic Services
  • The district and every school are required to meet the goals set out in the priority areas.  Each site will develop their own School Site Plan that is fully aligned to the district LCAP.  The SSC/SDM at each school will set specific goals to increase or improve services to the school's pupils, allocating and approving the expenditure of the Supplemental and Concentration Grant Funds accordingly. 
  • MEANINGFUL engagement of all staff and parent groups is critical to the LCAP and Budget development process at both district and site levels.
