File Attachment:  
Summary Senate Bill 374 requires that as a condition of receiving funding for specified categorical programs, the school district will ensure that each school in the district operating those categorical programs consolidates any plans that are required by those programs into a single plan to be known as the Single Plan for Student Achievement. The plans include grade level or department action plans integrated with the overall school-wide plans.

The following are requirements of Senate Bill 374 as it relates to the Single Plan for Student Achievement:
• The plan is aligned with school goals for improving pupil achievement.
• School goals are based upon an analysis of verifiable state data, including the Academic Performance Index developed pursuant to Section 52052, the California English Language Development Test, and may include any data voluntarily developed by districts to measure pupil achievement.
• The plan addresses how funds provided to the school will be used to improve the academic performance of all pupils to the level of the performance goals as established by the API.
• The plan identifies the schools’ means of evaluating progress toward accomplishing the goals.
• The plan addresses how state and federal law governing these programs will be implemented.
• The plan is developed with the review, certification and advice of any applicable school advisory committees.
• The plan is written, reviewed annually and updated by the school site council, including proposed expenditure of funds allocated to the school through the consolidated application.
• The plan is reviewed and a request for approval is submitted to the governing board of the local education agency at a regularly scheduled meeting.

To be compliant with state and federal regulations, all 2011-12 Single Plans for Student Achievement and the Academic Program Surveys are approved by School Site Councils. A request for approval of the plans and surveys will be submitted to the Board at the first meeting in January. Copies of all site plans and surveys are available online at MDUSD.org.
