This is a memo all Superintendents of Schools received from the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE), dated January 10, 2014.
Members of the Parent Advisory Committee are asked to seek input from the community with regard to ideas for improving schools in eight major areas of school operation and culture listed on page 2 of 8 on the actual bulletin (skip the memo — scroll down to page 8 out of 13 below). These are called “Eight State Priorities.”
Under Local Control Funding Formula, there are four groupings of students who will receive additional funding under Prop 30.
We should look at all eight areas and give special attention to the four groups who get concentration grants. How can programs better serve the needs of LI (low-income), Special Ed, ELL (English language learner), and foster youth?
