LCFF & LCAP PTO Presentation April, 2014 TEAM Charter School
There's a new school funding law called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). It's a new way for schools to focus on student success. LCFF requires school districts to involve parents in planning and decision making. It also: Shifts spending decisions from the state to your local school district.

The process used to involve parents, students, community members, school employees and other stakeholders in developing, reviewing, and supporting implementation of the LCAP. Each Plan Must Describe:

What is our school doing to engage all parents in the process of developing the LCAP? Educational Presentations (like this!) Parent Surveys Weekly Focus Groups to be scheduled each Wednesday beginning April 30 th. Meeting times will vary in order to include as many parents as possible. Questions Parents Should Ask…….
How can parents, staff and community partners work together to support student success at home and at school? Your input is needed! What do you, as parents need from the school?? What does the school need from you? Questions parents should ask……

What are we doing to prepare staff for the implementation of new standards and assessments? Teachers are receiving training from San Joaquin County Office of Education on the Common Core Standards. TEAM implemented the MAP Assessments. Teachers have had training in Smarter Balanced Assessments. Professional Learning Communities by Grade are in place. Ongoing PLC training will occur with the focus on improving student achievement. Teaching Staff will have input into the LCAP to develop additional strategies that they feel will be effective in training them to implement the new standards.
TEAM is designated a Title 1 school. Title 1 resources pay for a full time Resource Teacher and Paraprofessional who provides extra assistance for the lowest performing students. TEAM EL students raised their CELDT scores at least one level from school year 12’-13’ to school year 13’-14’. While this is the state requirement, the majority of schools do not achieve this goal. How can TEAM improve services for low income students, EL students and foster youth?
