LCAP Community Meetings
John Swett Unified School District will be reviewing and updating the District's Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) as an element of our budget development process for the 2016-2017 school year.  As you may recall, the LCAP is the required accountability mechanism for the new Local Control Funding Formulas (LCFF) for California public schools.  School and community stakeholder participation is an integral part of the process.  The District will host a series of meetings in February to discuss the current plan and funding updates from the State, as well as looking ahead to planning for the next three years, as required by the State.  The schedule of meetings is as follows:

Request by John Swett Unified School District to Waive
California Education Code Section 37202(a) – The Equity Length of Time
Requirement for Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten Programs at District’s Elementary School

The John Swett Unified School District applied for and received a waiver to provide a 3 hour 35 minute program for transitional kindergarten and a 4 hour program for kindergarten.  The District requested flexibility in determining the length of its transitional kindergarten program in order to continue implementing a high quality transitional kindergarten program that provides a modified instructional day, modified curricula and developmentally appropriate instructional practices.  The District will continue to strive to meet the individual needs of all students in our district.

The waiver is valid through June 8, 2016.  The District will renew the waiver for the 2016-2017 school year.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

JSUSD Middle and High School students are being asked to take a survey at school. The California Department of Education requires schools and districts to ask students about alcohol, tobacco, and other drug issues, as well as questions about school safety and the learning environment. Participation in the survey is voluntary on the part of the student, and we hope you will encourage your child to participate so that his or her opinion and knowledge can be part of the information gleaned from the survey.

The survey is anonymous. No names or any other identifying information is connected to the answers except for the name of the school.

If you have questions, please contact Ken Nelson at knelson@jsusd.k12.ca.us or (510) 787-1286.
