This year, the process for developing the 2021-2024 Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a little different. In the past, we have asked our members for their input, and then we have sent representatives from the Faculty Association to attend the LCAP meeting at the District Office. The process for this year is open for everyone to give their input directly. Please use the links below to include your input. The padlets are available now and will be available until May 21, 2021.
