CRES in the news!

California Business for Education Excellence Awards were presented to seven Elk Grove Unified School District schools at the April 22 board meeting. The California Business for Education Excellence (CBEE) identifies its organization as a leading, unifying voice for California business leaders who are committed to improving public education, closing the achievement gap and helping to ensure college readiness and success.

The CBEE Honor Roll is the only school recognition program in the state using only student achievement outcomes as the criteria.

Through the Honor Roll School program, CBEE identifies and recognizes high performing schools in the state, particularly schools that are closing the achievement gap. CBEE utilizes data from the nonprofit Educational Results Partnership, the largest longitudinally-inked, actionable school data system in the country.

Awards are given in three categories:

• Star Schools – High poverty, high performing, achievement gap closing schools. Star Schools are defined as schools that have 33 percent or more of their students categorized as socio-economically disadvantaged.

• Scholar Schools – High performing schools without significant levels of low-income students. Scholar Schools are defined as schools that have fewer than 33 percent of students categorized as socio-economically disadvantaged.

• Stem Schools – Honor Roll schools with higher poverty and higher performance in math and science. Stem Schools are part of the Star Schools list, which identifies schools that are in the top 100 of those schools for math and science.

This year, the following sites have received notification that they are recipients of a CBEE Star, Scholar or  Stem Award:

• Star Schools: Arnold Adreani Elementary, Elizabeth Pinkerton and Katherine L. Albiani middle schools, and Pleasant Grove High School

• Scholar Schools: Cosumnes River, Elliott Ranch and Sunrise elementary schools

• Stem School: Arnold Adreani Elementary School.

Elk Grove Unified School District, Local Control Accountability Plan, EGUSD Draft LCAP

Under California’s new public education funding rules, school districts are required to adopt a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) that describes the actions, services and expenditures that support student growth. The LCAP clarifies how programs/services will be measurably improved in quantity or quality, as a result of proportionate increases in funding for all students as well as state identified subgroups including students designated as low income, Foster Youth, English Learners and Students with Disabilities.

In building the three-year plan, school districts must seek ideas and input from parents, staff, students and other stakeholders. Over the past school year, the District and schools have been engaging EGUSD’s community in this process. Based on input from many stakeholders, EGUSD has developed a draft LCAP that has been posted on our EGUSD LCFF/LCAP website at http://blogs.egusd.net/lcff-lcap.

The District is asking stakeholders to review this draft plan and provide comments. You can find an online comments section at http://blogs.egusd.net/lcff-lcap/comments.

For parents who do not have access to the Internet, you can ask for a printed copy of the EGUSD draft LCAP plan and a printed comment card in the school office. Thank you for your support of the Elk Grove Unified School District.
