2014-15 LCAP Process


San Rafael City Schools (SRCS) conducted an in-depth, targeted and multi-layered engagement process this year. This engagement process included multiple opportunities to review the LCAP and to provide feedback on the plans to support all students in SRCS to graduate college and career ready. 

A large majority of our engagement this year was to move from several goals for multiple initiatives to five aligned goals. This goal alignment involved a thoughtful stakeholder engagement process that involved central office leadership, site principals, teachers, parents, students and community. This process culminated in the creation of five shared LCAP goals for both the elementary and high school districts that are directly aligned with the district goals. These shared goals are also directly aligned to the school board's goals, and as such, promote a common focus and commitment districts-wide. See the goals listed on the right.

2015 - 2018 Approved LCAPs

The final versions of the Local Control Accountability Plans (LCAP) for 2015-2018 were approved by the SRCS Board Meeting on June 24, 2015.

Parent Advisory Committee (PAC)

SRCS convened the LCAP Parent Advisory Committee/English Learner Parent Advisory Committee several times throughout the year to help guide the process. See below for the agendas and minutes.

These meetings served as a way to inform and gather authentic input and feedback from stakeholders. Forums provided a pathway to understand the LCFF and LCAP process more clearly so participants could provide input via upcoming meetings and sessions. Specifically, the PAC/ELPAC had the following roles:

  • Provide feedback on the District’s process for engaging parents, teachers, staff and the community
  • Provide feedback on the District’s LCAP
  • Support prioritizing strategies for the LCAP

At its last meeting on June 1, the District shared draft versions of the LCAP. Click below to view the draft versions presented.

Additionally, at its last meeting on June 1, after the drafts were presented, participants reviewed them in groups and then submitted questions for Superintendent Michael Watenpaugh to respond to in writing.

Community Workshops

As part of our LCAP process, we held a series of workshops so that members of our community could share their thoughts on our LCAP to help shape SRCS' educational priorities for student success. Students, teachers, staff, parents and community members were invited to attend.

Childcare and Spanish interpreting were available at both workshops. The workshops are a series, so individuals were encouraged to attend both meetings if possible.
