For the first time in more than 40 years, California school districts have the flexibility to prioritize resources in order to meet the specific needs of our unique student populations. Under this new framework, referred to as the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), our district must create an Accountability Plan that meets the educational priorities of our community.
During the months of March and April, there will be a series of engagement opportunities for community members to share what they believe should be the district’s highest priorities for student success. It is very important that we receive feedback to provide the best educational programs for all PAUSD students, thus a time line for such feedback is indicated on the right.
