REMINDER: Parent Conferences, Minimum Day, and Thank You!

Good Morning Conqueror Families, this is Mr. Hess with a short announcement.

This is just a reminder that we will have parent conferences in the Gymnasium tomorrow, Thursday, March 1st from 5pm-7pm.  We are looking forward to seeing you as our staff can collaborate with you for your students academic success at Los Altos.  Please bring your students grade report with you to parent conferences to help you navigate to the teachers you need to visit.  We will provide you with a map of the gym locations of each teacher when you arrive. 

On Friday we will have our traditional minimum day after parent conferences as well.

We also want to thank you for the outpouring of support from so many of you on Monday and Tuesday Tuesday as we were able to return to and keep some normalcy for all of your amazing students.  I want to say again how great it is to be a part of this community who will always do everything they can to keep students safe and healthy.

Thanks for your continued partnership of keeping Los Altos great!

Common Core Connections for Parents

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.
