SAN RAMON VALLEY
School district requests public input on agenda
The San Ramon Valley school district is inviting parents, educators, employees and the community to help set district goals for the next year and beyond.
The district is required by the state to seek community input as it puts together its Local Control Accountability Plan -- as are all districts statewide -- in order to receive money through the state's new Local Control Funding Formula.
Attendees will learn more about the new state funding system as well as be asked for their insights on how to improve school atmosphere, student achievement and student engagement.
Three community forums remain; all start at 6:30 p.m.:
A forum was held Tuesday at California High School.
