Basic Services -- LCAP Highlights 

 

Dear Friends,

 

Two weeks ago, we began sharing with you some highlights of our Local Control and Accountability Plan, or LCAP.  We began with a publication titled Academic Excellence.  Today we continue our series of highlights with Basic Services – A Foundation for Excellence.

 

If the title links to the above documents don’t work, you can also find them at lbschools.net under the Local Control Funding section.

 

In the coming weeks, we will share additional highlights of the LCAP.

 

Best regards,

Chris

 

Christopher J. Steinhauser
Superintendent of Schools

 

Servicios Básicos -- Lo Destacado del LCAP

 

Estimados Amigos,

 

Hace dos semanas empezamos a compartir con ustedes algunos puntos destacados de nuestro Plan de Control y Responsabilidad Local o LCAP.  Empezamos con una publicación titulada Excelencia Académica.  El día de hoy seguimos con nuestra serie de los aspectos destacados con Servicios Básicos – La Fundación para la Excelencia.

 

Si los enlaces con los títulos no funcionan, usted también puede encontrarlos en lbschools.net bajo la sección “Local Control Funding.”

 

En las próximas semanas, compartiremos puntos adicionales del LCAP.

 

Mis mejores deseos,

Chris

 

Christopher J. Steinhauser

Superintendente Escolar

State law requires all public schools to create a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about your child's school, which includes:

  • School Description and Mission
  • School Programs and Instructional Materials
  • Opportunities for Parent Involvement
  • Test Results
  • Safety Plan
  • Facilities

We invite you to view the School Accountability Report Card (SARC) for your child's school.  You can find your school's SARC here.

Results of the 2017-2018 School of Choice Process for current eighth grade students will be sent home via US Mail this week. Results will also be visible in ParentVue beginning Friday, February 16, at 5:00pm.

 

Please remember, enrollment is not complete until you intend to a pathway that you have been accepted to. Failure to intend (via ParentVue) and certify by the deadline of 11:59pm Friday, February 23, 2018, can result in the loss of that acceptance.

 

After viewing your results, if you wish to file an appeal, a link to the form, as well as a paper copy will be available on our website. These forms can also be obtained from your Middle School or K8 Office.

 

We strongly recommend intending to a pathway while the appeals are being reviewed, as there is no guarantee of an appeal being granted.

 

For this year, the deadline to file an appeal is the close of business on March 16, 2018. Following that, the next opportunity to apply for a transfer will be April 1, 2019, through the High School Office.

 

If you have any questions, please call the High School Choice Helpline at (562) 997-8306.

Hoover Middle School will participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) on Tuesday, February 13th, 2018. NAEP is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students know and can do in various subjects. It is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics, within the U.S. Department of Education. NAEP is different from our state assessment because it provides a common measure of student achievement across the country. The results are released as The Nation's Report Card, which provides information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers, and the public.

Hello Eighth Grade Families,

 

The deadline to complete your enrollment into the pathway of your choice for high school on ParentVue is 11:59pm, tomorrow night, March 1, 2017.

 

Failure to do so by the deadline will result in the loss of the acceptance, and your student will be assigned to a school and a pathway in the district where there is space available.

 

To set your intent, you can do it one of three ways:

  1. Log into ParentVue, click on “School of Choice”, click on the (blue) intend button next to the pathway you prefer, and then click on the (brown) certify button at the bottom of the page. When this is done, the screen will be green and you will get a confirmation email. Keep this email for your records.
  2.  
  3. You can visit your middle school or K8 Office and ask for assistance from the counseling staff, who will help you and print a confirmation page for you.

 

  1. You can call the Choice Helpline at (562)997-8306, or visit Team High School Choice at 1515 Hughes Way, Third Floor, where our team will be happy to assist you in setting your intention and printing your confirmation. We will only be available until 4:40pm tomorrow afternoon, as our building closes for the day.

 

Regardless of which option you choose, it is very important that you not miss this deadline. Even if you are submitting an appeal for a different program, set an intent to one of your selected programs while we are reviewing the appeals. The intention set will have no effect on any appeal decision.

 

Please double check that you have clicked on both the blue “intend” button to the right of your preferred pathway, and the brown “certify” button at the bottom of the page to complete the process. You will receive an email confirmation. Please keep this for your records as proof of completion.

 

We thank you for your attention to this matter, and wish you and your family a pleasant evening.
