Prioritizing School Climate Within the Local Control and Accountability Plan: Creating goals that support student connectedness
Join WestEd and CDE in this webinar to discuss the use of LCAP goals to support student connectedness and improved school climate.
- Each local educational agency (LEA) in California is required to address school climate within their Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). This webinar will discuss the importance of developing goals that provide support for any local school climate need(s) within the LCAP. This session will:
- Provide examples of school connectedness goals
- Discuss strategies for well written goal descriptions, “why” statements, metrics, and actions
- Provide opportunities for participants to indicate the types of local school climate data they are collecting to inform their needs assessment, the actions/strategies they developed to address those needs, and how the impact/effectiveness of actions was determined
- Provide resources for supporting the development of school climate LCAP goals
