Accountability Plan Maps Bright Future for Students

Local Control & Accountability Plan (LCAP) sets 2019-20 focus for programs and funds to ensure students are college and future ready.

LCAPs describe the school district’s overall vision for students, annual goals, and specific actions the district will take to achieve the vision and goals. 

Click to read the LCAP for Campbell Union School District and those of our 12 schools.

We determine Local Control & Accountability Plan priorities through a process of reviewing academic and school climate data and garnering input from our community. We elicit broad public input in multiple ways, including online forums and meetings with parents, pupils, school personnel, neighbors, and business and community leaders.

LCAP Goals for 2018-2021

  • Provide high quality teaching and learning that promotes opportunities for applying knowledge.
  • Ensure that students are college and future ready by equipping them with the competencies identified in Profile of a Graduate. Close all identified Achievement Gaps.
  • Provide appropriate tiered supports that promote and sustain positive social/emotional development for all students.
  • Fully engage parents/guardians, students and the community in support of student educational outcomes.

Ideas to Encourage Summer Reading

Numerous studies show that being able to read proficiently opens the door to a world of success.

“Our world economy demands a more educated workforce, and grade-level reading proficiency is the key.” 
Landmark Research by the Annie E. Casey Foundation

To help our families keep their children reading and learning while schools are closed for summer, we offer the following list of ideas.

Head to the Library: Thanks to a partnership with Campbell Library, students enrolled in our schools—no matter where they live—have access to the Library’s resources online and in-house. Also, many local libraries hold events and activities for school-ages children.

Keep Reading Materials Handy: Reading can be fun. Keep comic books, magazines, newspapers, paperbacks and e-books on hand as an easy option for your child to choose.

Talk About Reading: Ask your children about what they read. Listen for what they liked or discovered, and connect it to their own experiences.

Create Low-Tech Reading Time: Set aside “no electronics” time each day for reading. Take turns reading aloud to each other or read independently, and keep the television, stereo, smart phones and computers turned off.

Take Opportunities to Practice: Encourage your child to read everyday things, such as menus, movie listings, game instructions, recipes, signs, maps and more.

“The child who has access to reading is a child better prepared to rise and meet their future. Without the ability to read, a child faces significant challenges in navigating the mid-21st century.”
