You were all so awesome in helping us to promote our LCAP Community Input meetings. Now that we have a draft plan, we need to ask for your help once again to get the word out about our community forums for review of the draft plan and our online comment period which will be open May 12-16 at www.successforstudents.org
In the coming weeks, you will be asked to give your thoughts on this question: “What would most help all students in RUSD to be successful?” We need to hear from you as our district begins putting together its Local Control and Accountability Plan. Districts throughout California are crafting these plans, which signal a significant change from the state-controlled “one size fits all” educational plans of the past to a more locally-minded plan that specifically addresses the needs of our students here in Riverside. Make sure to have your voice heard! Come of one of the community meetings. You can find a full list of meeting dates and times at: www.successforstudents.org. You also can share your ideas at this website.
