LCAP Advisory Committee Applicants wanted

Newark Unified School District

LCAP Advisory Committee Application

November 9 – Dec 8, 2015


In 2013 - 2014, the state of California changed the way it funds school districts.  The new model, called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), allows districts more freedom in how funds are spent but also required the development of a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) that aligns spending district goals for student achievement. 

One key aspect of the LCAP process is the engagement of parents/guardians and staff in providing input and feedback.  Annually, the plan is updated and the committee will meet to review, revise and/or develop new goals.  NUSD is in the process of establishing the LCAP Advisory Committee. 

NUSD is seeking application for parents and teachers to participate on the advisory committee.  If you are interested in participating on this committee you must be available for meetings on the mornings of:

January 21                   March 8

April 13                       May 10 All


Apply online at:           https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JQ3WVM9.   

The deadline for applying is December 8, 2015. The Board will review the applications on December 15, 2015.  If you are unable to access online paper copies are available at school offices.

Traffic Safety - seguridad vial

                                                                                                                                                 SPANISH TRANSLATION

As we begin the school year, Newark Police Department will begin citing drivers whenever necessary to encourage compliance of traffic laws and to reinforce that safety of our children is a priority.

There have been multiple incidents endangering children even a child being struck and several near misses.  Please remember that children’s cognitive abilities are still developing and they lack training and experience in traffic safety.  

Keys to avoid receiving a citation:

  • Drive Slow
  • Do not make illegal U-turns
  • Have car seats for children
  • Have seat belts on all passengers
  • Make a “full-stop” at stop signs

Putting our children at risk is not worth the few minutes you may save by rushing and breaking these suggestions.  Newark Unified School District and the Newark Police Department want to keep everyone safe.

Safety reminders for children walking to school:

  • Walk, don’t run across the street
  • Look left, look right and left again
  • Obey Walk/Wait signals
  • Do not cross at mid-block locations
  • Use crosswalks

Safety reminders for children biking to school:

  • Always wear a properly fastened and fitted helmet
  • Obey all traffic laws
  • Ride in the same direction as motor vehicles
  • Check traffic when changing lanes, crossing streets or turning
  • Use hand signals

Local Control Accountability Plan

In 2013, California adopted a new formula for deciding how much money each school district gets, called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). As part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), school districts are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). With parent and community input, school districts must establish goals and actions for the entire district as well as for each school. The plans will demonstrate how each school district’s budget will help achieve the goals and annually assess how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes.

LCAP Development

Regulations for implementation of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) require that each district hold an LCAP public hearing in advance and at a separate meeting from its adoption, which we have scheduled for the June 17, 2014 Board Meeting. There will be LCAP hearings on May 20th and June 3rd Board Meetings. Also at the June 3rd Board Meeting will be a public hearing for the budget.

The intent of the LCAP hearing is to allow for public comment and recommendations regarding the specific actions proposed to be included in the LCAP plan. The regulation also requires separate public hearings for the LCAP and the budget. Further, the regulations require that the public hearing for the budget be held at the same meeting as a public hearing for the LCAP.
