Summary In light of the many changes at the state level such as the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and the proposed new state assessment system (MAPP), Mt. Diablo Unified schools, with guidance from the California Department of Education, are moving the deadline of Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) to April. The new timeline will allow schools to align their SPSA for 2014-2015 with the required Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) and with the Local Education Agency Plan (LEAP). The additional time will allow school staffs to develop a greater understanding of the CCSS, to thoughtfully examine their programs, and to proceed through a deep evaluation of programmatic needs before attempting to write new plans.
Schools were asked to conduct the following in lieu of creating a new plan in the fall of 2013 and then again in the spring of 2014
• Complete annual needs assessment
• A clear vote by School Site Council (SSC) to extend the plan (with or without minor modifications) through 2013-2014
• Submission of a revised budget for the plan showing aligned expenditures for all ConApp related budgets.
• SSC minutes must include explicit information of the review process and questions raised relative to the plan effectiveness
• Title I schools need to affirm all the federally required components of their plans are still in effect.
