LCAP Stakeholder Engagement
Stakeholder input is a vital part of the process of revising the Local Control and Accountability Plan each year. Over the past few years we have tried a variety of methods to collect input from stakeholders to ensure we hear from as many people as possible. This year we continued to use Data Equity Walks where 54 of our schools attended one or more sessions. This stakeholder engagement process has been organized into three cycles during the year. School teams made up of parents, students and staff were encouraged to attend one forum in the fall (September 27, October 10, and October 25), one in the winter (January 24, 28 and 31) and one in the spring (March 28, April 10 and 8).
Staff met four times during the year with district student council to ensure the thinking of a wide range of students was included. To see their ideas in the areas of culture/climate, academic performance, safety and communication, click here. Additionally, input is continually gathered at LCAP Parent Advisory Committee (LCAP PAC) and District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) meetings during the year. Annual parent, student and staff survey results also provide valuable information used to refine our plan.
Thanks to each of you for taking the time to provide input at the school or district level! Stakeholder input is a major consideration in our LCAP revisions, and while not all ideas may be included, we work hard to address the themes aligned to the LCAP goal and focus areas which arose from stakeholder input. Below are summaries of the results (this page will be continously updated throughout the year).

Data Equity Walks
What is a Data Equity Walk? The Data Equity Walk model is from EdTrust West and guides participants through a conversation about student data by subgroup. These Data Equity Walks lead attendees on a facilitated discussion to share their insight on two years of districtwide data on reading/language arts, math, suspensions, climate (surveys) and graduation rates. The conversations are intended to generate urgency and collective responsibility to raise academic achievement for all students and focus efforts on attacking persistent achievement gaps.
Stakeholder Data Equity Walks: The Fall Data Equity Walks were held on Spetember 27th, October 10th and October 25th at three different locations. And at our Fall Academic Partnership Conferences in October. Two hundred forty one students, parents and staff attended these walks and shared their insight on two years of districtwide data.

The links above indicate the first phase of participation where particiapnts were asked to share individual observations, questions and suggestions from the first series of the Data Equity Walks. Responses has been categorized by parent, student and staff.
The next phase was to collect group thoughts with particiapnts mixing with other school sites that they had not had an opportunity to talk to. Through conversations of the data and experience many big issues were highlighted, along with some potential solutions. To read more about these group thinking, click here.

The final forums in the series identified key themes that were drawn from the two earlier sets of regional forums as well as from student input and recommendations from the K-8 Equity Task Force. Within themes in the areas of climate/culture, academics, on-time graduation, and social-emotional support, schools were asked to (1) identify how effective their school's work was in this area and (2) identify their need for resources beyond what the school has now to make progress in this area. School teams engaged in a lot of conversation around these questions. Below is a link to the report showing how the schools rated their effectiveness and where they indicated that more resources were needed. Each school principal was provided a report showing their ratings beside those of other similar schools.
