State Board of Education President Michael Kirst Issues Statement About Engagement of Students, Parents, Educators and Advocates in the Development of Local Control and Accountability Plans

Today California State Board of Education president Mike Kirst issued the following statement about the participation of students, parents, educators and advocates in the development of Local Control and Accountability Plans and the Board’s efforts to determine final LCAP regulations:

"The input from students, parents, educators, and advocates at recent California State Board of Education meetings has helped inform and shape state level decisions about how Local Control and Accountability Plans can lead to improved opportunities for students at the local level. In this first year of LCAP implementation, we’re encouraged that thousands of students, parents and community leaders have mobilized throughout the state, participating in school board meetings, student advisory groups, site council discussions and community forums. This is an historic shift from state control of school spending to local community engagement about how school funds are spent to improve academic outcomes for students, with renewed focus on meeting the needs of English language learners, low income students and foster youth. Our goal in the months ahead is to continue to engage stakeholders as we determine final LCAP regulations."
