 LCAP Steering Committee

The State of California requires local school districts to establish a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP plan is to be developed with feedback and input from community stakeholder groups--staff, parents and students, with a focus on achieving more equitable outcomes for English learners, students in families with low income, Foster children, Homeless children, African American, Latino/Hispanic and students with disabilities.  The LCAP must be approved by the Governing Board in June of 2019. We are always looking for families to become involved in this informational and advisory committee--please visit our webpage for more information


District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC)

The San Lorenzo Unified School District supports the participation of all parents in their children’s educational experience, including the parent of English Learners. The District’s goal is to empower parents to support and meet their children’s educational needs, encouraging parent participation in both district level such as the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) and school level committees such as the English Learner Advisory Committees (ELAC). These committees provide parents with educational information as well as an opportunity to participate in an Open Forum where questions and concerns can be discussed. For more the complete handbook and more information, please visit our District DELAC webpage.
African American Family Advisory Council (AAFAC)
The African American Family Advisory Council is a group of educators and parents who meet to discuss the educational experiences and progress of African American students in the San Lorenzo Unified School District. We meet quarterly, in the evenings, and provide a range of discussion topics including student progress data, opportunities for college and beyond, supports and services for students and families and to hear from our students. There are celebrations and community partnership activities as well. Please see the flyer below for more information on the dates of our upcoming events.

Mission: The African American Family Advisory Council will create a nurturing and safe environment, honoring the development of positive racial identity attitudes that value family voice and experiences, through the intentional efforts of culturally responsive relationships. We will cultivate rich opportunities for dialogue between African American families and school staff, reducing insensitive conversations/interactions, while improving districtwide cultural competence, positive interaction, and systemic navigation.

As a result of the African American Family Advisory Council, students of African descent will show growth in academic achievement measures, Advanced Placement class enrollment, A-G course fulfillment, attendance and graduation rates, and declines in chronic absenteeism, disciplinary referrals, suspensions, and feelings of disconnectedness and institutional oppression.
