BCSD Seeks Community Input on Proposed Actions to Meet LCAP Goals

The Bakersfield City School District (BCSD) invites the public participate in an online survey, available in English and Spanish, regarding the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)/Local Education Agency Plan (LEAP). The community is invited to share their feedback on the proposed actions to meet the District’s LCAP goals for the 2019-2020 school year.


BCSD also invites parents and community members to an LCAP Community Forum during the February monthly class of the District’s Parent University sessions. The forums will take place on Saturday, February 23, 2019. Parents are invited to attend one of two sessions: Sequoia Middle School (900 Belle Terrace) at 9:00 a.m. or Stiern Middle School (2551 Morning Drive) at 10:00 a.m. The forum will consist of a presentation by BCSD’s leadership team, followed by a feedback session for parents who will then be invited to join the parent university class for the day. Community members are invited to attend the forum at Stiern Middle School where a special feedback session will be provided for this group following the presentation.


The LCAP is required by the state-adopted Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), which provides districts the flexibility on how they allocate funding to better serve the needs of their students. Districts must identify their greatest student needs, set targets for improving performance with regards to those needs, and allocate funding for programs and services to meet those goals. Throughout the next few months, BCSD will engage parents, teachers, staff, students and the community to discuss the progress of the LCAP at BCSD and future planning to improve student learning.
