Board Briefs: Feb. 13, 2024


Here are a few highlights from the Feb. 13 board meeting (the full agenda packet is available):

Board hears update on district’s strategic plan development

San Juan Unified is in the process of creating a new strategic plan, which will serve as a roadmap to prioritize efforts and align resources. The strategic plan development process began in the fall and included a wide range of voice collection across the district with a variety of students, families, staff and community. From community workshops, virtual and in-person focus groups, and student feedback forums, to lunchtime popups at schools, surveys, and individual interviews--the focus on co-creating a collaborative, student-centered strategic plan has been a driving theme throughout the process. 

The Strategic Core Planning team and the Strategic Design team met in late January to review the feedback that was collected and draft the strategic roadmap, which will be shared with the community, who will be asked to provide feedback, this spring. Based on that feedback, the Strategic Core Planning and Strategic Design teams will then meet again to finalize a draft that will be presented to the board for review and action in May. 

Board hears 2023-24 LCAP mid-year update

The 2021-2024 Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a three-year plan that supports the continuous improvement of student performance within the eight state priorities, with an emphasis on English learners, low-income, and foster youth students. The LCAP is updated yearly based on a review of state and local data, input gathered from consulting with our educational partners, and research. The board of education adopted the 2023-24 LCAP on June 27, 2023. The LCAP mid-year update includes available mid-year data and expenditures related to metrics and actions in the 2023-24 LCAP. The full presentation is available.
