LCAP SURVEY https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ourLCAP
Several years ago funding for all public schools was redesigned. Part of the change in how we are funded is the LCAP, which stands for Local Control Accountability Plan. It is a document that attempts to place accountability for alignment of our school goals with our use of funds. Innovations Academy’s LCAP is always on our website, under the ‘Finance’ tab at the top of the home page. At this time we are soliciting feedback from parents for our current and future LCAP goals. We would appreciate you completing this survey about our LCAP goals. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ourLCAP
