2015-16 LCAP Process

Summary

San Rafael City Schools conducted an in-depth, targeted and multi-layered engagement process in 2016. 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 focused on implementation of the initiatives under our five goals. Sharing progress on the implementation of goals involved a thoughtful stakeholder engagement process which included the community, students, parents, teachers, staff, site principals and central office leadership. This process also centered around the work of the LCAP Stakeholder Taskforce, which was made up of representatives from all stakeholder groups. They collaborated to conduct a review of district-wide, budgeted “Top Ten Instructional Initiatives” for each district.

2016 Engagement Process

Our entire SRCS community is integral to shaping our plans for continued success and growth. As such, we want to brief you on our LCAP engagement plan for the 2015-16 school year. 

This year, the stakeholder engagement is all about implementation. We will focus on the data, what we have learned and a strong implementation schedule. Through out work, we will be create a refined priority list of what can be accomplished in the next 3-5 years. 

Stakeholder Engagement ProcesThe center of our engagement work this year will be our LCAP Stakeholder Engagement Taskforce, with supporting efforts. Please click here for a flow chart, which helps illustrate our process. 

The Taskforce is comprised of representatives for parents, teachers, students, labor management, Board members, community members and administration. The purpose of the LCAP Taskforce is to review data, monitor progress, provide feedback on plans for broader engagement and develop recommendations for and feedback on updates to the LCAP. This group will meet several times through the remainder of the school year. The Taskforce conclusions will be incorporated into the draft LCAPs and reviewed by the Parent Advisory Committee.

Additionally, as part of our engagement work we will be conducting: Join the Conversation sessions and surveys for staff; student focus groups; input sessions with labor management; and will be leveraging existing committees.

If you have any questions or feedback, please contact superintendent@srcs.org or 415-492-3233. 

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. 

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

The SRCS's LCAP Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) held its last 2016 meeting on Monday, June 6, 2016 from 6 - 7:30 pm at Bahia Vista Elementary's Multipurpose Room (125 Bahia Way). It was an open meeting to the public. At this meeting, the draft Elementary School District and High School District 2016-19 LCAPS were shared.
