To meet the unique needs of Chula Vista Elementary School District’s diverse population, the district has updated its Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) to enhance the educational experience of all students.
The LCAP is a three-year plan that promotes positive outcomes by determining goals, actions, and services that align with state and local priorities. The LCAP also focuses on improving services and resources to three target populations: low income students, English Learners, and foster youth.
The California state priorities are as follows: student achievement, student engagement, parent involvement, school climate, Common Core State Standards, course access, basic services, student outcomes.
To develop the LCAP, the district reached out to 3,819 stakeholders, which included CVESD staff, employee representative groups, and community organizations. With the use of Thoughtexchange, an online engagement software that allows communities to have meaningful online conversations, the district was able to identify the following LCAP goals for the 2017-2018 school year:
Increase parent engagement; ensure students engage in relevant and personalized learning experiences; improve and increase access to services that promote school success and support social, emotional, and physical wellness; recruit and retain the highest caliber employees; and have students demonstrate increased proficiency in all grades and in all target groups.
