2017 Accountability & LCAP Strategy Workshop: Final Reminder

Published February 27, 2017 12:42

We are nearing the conclusion of our winter '17 Accountability & LCAP Strategy Workshop series and wanted to send you one final reminder that you can still register for one of the final two confirmed workshop locations in this year's series: Los Angeles or Fresno.

The Los Angeles and Fresno workshops will be the final opportunities to receive CSDC's in-depth, charter-specific accountability and LCAP guidance in an interactive, in-person format for some time to come. So we hope you will join us and the dozens of charter school colleagues who will gather to learn and discuss practicable strategies for navigating California's fluid accountability landscape.

About the Workshop

Designed for senior school administrators and leaders (e.g., principals, executive directors, CFOs, governing board members, etc.) who have substantial involvement with their schools' LCFF, LCAP, and other key accountability matters, this workshop will help attendees best position their schools for the new metrics while keeping accountability meaningful and manageable.

Assessing your school's readiness

This workshop is particularly intended for those schools that are currently thinking-through the many layers of the new accountability system. For example:

  • Does your leadership staff understand the new high-stakes, publicly reported multiple measures replacing the API?
  • Do you understand the new multi-stage sequence of assistance, including automatic triggers for authorizer and state engagement?
  • Do the charter petition and Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) include strategically developed goals? Do they exclude or modify performance indicators to reflect how the Local Control Funding Formula’s (LCFF) “state priorities” apply to the school’s program?
  • Are you ready to analyze performance on new multiple measures and develop concrete plans to (1) get the "easy ones" and (2) improve performance on the trickier ones?
  • Where the state's new measures may not reflect your school's strengths, is your school getting ahead of the data story? Are you tracking progress on measures that are meaningful for your school and documenting evidence of growth?
  • Given potentially burdensome new accountability tasks, are you streamlining and investing time where it counts most?
