LCAP Community Meetings

John Swett Unified School District will be reviewing and updating the district's Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) this spring as an element of our budget development process for the 2015-2016 school year.  As you may recall, the LCAP is the required accountability mechanism for the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) for California public schools.  School/community stakeholder participation is an integral part of the process.  Similar to last year, the District will host a series of meetings in February to discuss the current plan and funding updates from the State, as well as looking ahead to planning for the next three years, as required by the State.  The schedule of meetings is as follows:

Thank you to the students, parents, staff and community members and partners that attended the LCAP meetings in February.  Additional meetings will be scheduled as needed.  The District will hold a Public Hearing regarding the LCAP on Wednesday, June 10th.

Suggestions or comments for the LCAP can be emailed to lcapjsusd.org

Principal’s Message:

Academics:

John Swett High School is committed to excellence in our academic programs.  We have made tremendous progress dramatically improving our Academic Performance Index (API) this year to 770.  We are dedicated to the preparation of our students to succeed in the 21st century.  We recently were selected for the CAPE program to expand AP offerings at JSHS.

 Press Release:

“Congratulations!  In partnership with the College Board and Senator Ed Hernandez (D-West Covina), John Swett High within John Swett Unified has been selected to participate in The College Board’s new California AP Potential™ Expansion (CAPE) initiative. The initiative supports the California state law SB 532, passed on September 6th, 2011, which encourages all public high schools to offer at least five AP® courses.  John Swett High was chosen for CAPE because it was noted that there are currently fewer than eight AP courses being offered. Based upon each student’s individual PSAT/NMQST® score report, many students within your school population have strong potential to be successful in AP courses that are currently not offered at your school.”  This is great news for our school and community and was made possible by our dedicated school staff and high achieving students.
