Dear PUSD Parents and Families;
I hope you had a wonderful winter break. A new year often comes with resolutions and new
goals for the coming year. Our district is no different as the next several months bring
opportunities to review our goals and make revisions to our strategic plan which defines our
path for the future.
BCA Architects will continue with the master planning process. The development of our district
master plan will identify facility and infrastructure upgrades to support 21st century learning
environment projects at all eight school campuses.
The revision of our Local Control Accountability Plan will begin later this month. The LCAP was
implemented four years ago as a result of the state's funding redesign. The intent is to give
districts local control in aligning and allocating resources to support teaching and learning. Our
LCAP includes specific goals, action steps and a data dashboard to measure annual progress.
The development must be inclusive of all stakeholder groups to insure transparency and
achieve a shared vision.
I hope you will take advantage of these opportunities to get involved as your participation is
vital to our future success. For additional information on the importance of parent involvement
