Local Control Accountability Plan
School districts are required to work with their stakeholders to develop a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), which explains how monies will be spent to meet the needs of English learners, low income students, and foster youth. The LCAP must also address how monies will be spent in each of the state’s eight priority areas: basic services, state standards, parent involvement, student achievement, student engagement, school climate, course access, and other student outcomes. Parents, school staff, community members, bargaining units servicing the Savanna School District’s English Learners, Foster Youth, low income students and students with special needs, were given an opportunity to respond to a stakeholder survey and to attend a variety of meetings. The draft Local Control Accountability Plan was presented to the Board of Trustees on May 11, 2021. Following the presentation, a public hearing took place for input and/or comments. The Board of Trustees considered approval of the plan at its Regular Meeting on June 8, 2021. The District's Local Control Accountability Plan for 2021-2024 was unanimously approved by the Board of Trustees on June 8, 2021.
Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER III) Plan
School districts that receive Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds under the American Rescue Plan Act (called ESSER III funds) are required to develop a plan for how they will use their ESSER III funds. In Savanna School District's plan, we've identified how we intend to use ESSER III funds to address students’ academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs, as well as any opportunity gaps that existed before, and were worsened by, the COVID-19 pandemic. Funding may be utilized in ways identified in the Fisca Requirements. In developing the plan, we sought community input. The attached document provides an outline of what Savanna School District intends to use ESSER III funding for in order to best meet student needs.
