Local Control Accountability Plan
The LCAP is a three-year plan that describes the goals, actions, services, and expenditures to support positive student outcomes that address state and local priorities. The LCAP provides an opportunity for local educational agencies (LEAs) to share their stories of how, what, and why programs and services are selected to meet their local needs.
The Hanford Elementary School District has developed the LCAP with its stakeholder groups, including the Parent Advisory Committee and District English Learner Advisory Committee.
Members of the public have the opportunity to submit written comments regarding the specific actions and expenditures proposed to be included in the LCAP. Please use the following link to submit written comments on the district's LCAP: https://www.hanfordesd.org/contact
The district has established a Parent Advisory Committee (PAC). The PAC will meet four times during the school year. All parents and community members are invited to attend the PAC meetings. The superintendent, director of categorical programs, and/or director of curriculum will host these meetings. The purpose of the PAC is to engage parents in the LCAP planning process, to elicit their input into the district’s LCAP, and to provide them with the opportunity to voice priorities for their students. Spanish translation will be available at each of the meetings. Information regarding the state priorities, the purposes of the funding including the supplemental and concentration funds, along with drafts of the LCAP will be presented to parents. More information can be found here at this link.
