Dear NMUSD Parent, Guardian, or Community Member:

Starting in the 2013-2014 school year, the state of California created a new model for school district funding and accountability.  As a result, each district develops an annual Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).  Each school district must engage parents, educators, employees and the community to establish these plans.  The plan describes the school district’s overall vision for students, annual goals and specific actions the district will take to achieve the vision and goals.  The LCAPs must focus on eight areas identified as state priorities. The plans will also demonstrate how the district’s budget will help achieve the goals, and assess each year how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes.
 

We would like to invite you to provide your feedback on the 2015-2016 LCAP Actions and Services through a short online survey. 

You may also review all of the district’s LCAP documents on our dedicated webpage at http://web.nmusd.us/lcap
 

If you have questions or would like to provide additional input, please send an email to lcap@nmusd.us

Thank you.

Estimado padre, tutor, o miembro de la Comunidad de NMUSD:

 

A partir del año escolar 2013-2014, el estado de California ha creado un nuevo modelo de financiación de distrito escolar y la rendición de cuentas. Como resultado, cada distrito desarrolla un Plan de Rendición de Cuentas y Control Local (LCAP por sus siglas en ingles). Cada distrito escolar debe involucrar a los padres, educadores, empleados y la comunidad para establecer estos planes. El plan describe la visión general del distrito escolar para los estudiantes, las metas anuales y las acciones específicas del distrito tomará para alcanzar la visión y los objetivos. El LCAP debe centrarse en ocho áreas identificadas como prioridades del estado. Los planes también mostrarán la manera como se usará el presupuesto del distrito para ayudar a lograr las metas y cada año se evaluará si las estrategias del plan han mejorado los resultados

 

Nos gustaría invitarlos a que aporten sus comentarios sobre las acciones 2015-2016 LCAP y servicios a través de una breve encuesta en línea.

También puede revisar todos los documentos LCAP del distrito en nuestra página de internet, http://web.nmusd.us/lcap
