District to hold public forum

The Sierra Sands Unified School District’s Board of Education will hold a forum open to the public on June 19 at 7 p.m. at City Council Chambers.

The public forum will address the district’s budget for the 2014-15 fiscal year, as well as the Local Control Accounting Plan.

The LCAP is an important component of the state’s new Local Control Funding Formula, the formula the state now uses to fund school districts.

The LCAP is the district’s plan to meet annual goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities.

The tentative budget and final LCAP are scheduled to be presented to the board for adoption at a June 24 special board meeting. More information about the LCAP is at www.ssusdschools.org.
