• Members of the LJCA board had a very productive meeting with Superintendent Cindy Marten about our Partnership agreement and another meeting is scheduled for next month. Some items in our Agreement have no history of approval and will soon be presented to the relevant departments at the district for review. For additional background about the partnership agreement and the LJCA click here.
• Deidre Walsh, San Diego Unified School District briefly reviewed the PowerPoint Presentation, “Local Control Funding Formula Overview.” This is the new mechanism for funding education state-wide. Members of the LJCA board submitted questions to her in advance of the meeting. She answered the questions to the extent that the answers were known, as the state guidelines for the funding formula had not been established by the meeting date.
• The middle school and early high school math curriculum will change next year. This change will include the creation of new courses, Integrated Math 1, 2, and 3, which will supplant the current Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 courses.
There will be a notice of future meeting times in the eTwig. The LJCA Board encourages you to attend.
