* Describes the overall vision for students, annual goals and specific actions districts will take to achieve the vision and goals * Must address the needs of all students * Must link the district plan with the district budget Each school district must engage parents, educators, employees and the community to establish plans Districts must establish Parent Advisory Committees to provide advice to the district regarding the LCAP Districts where 15% of the students are ELL must
establish an English Learner Advisory Committee that must review and provide comment on the LCAP Districts can utilize existing committees PARENT INVOLVEMENT 8 KEY PRIORITY AREAS WHAT IS THE DASHBOARD?
