Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (1)

A recent law made major changes in the way that the state allocates funding to schools.  What will you do to ensure that the public understands your local control formula for school spending and your plan to measure outcomes?
Answer from Annette Walker:

I will advocate to increase transparency of LCFF processes and strategies to promote greater community engagement that institutes a culture of contiuous improvement necessary to sustain improved outcomes for our students. 

Specifically, objectives to measure outcomes include:

  • regular communication to identify systemic challenges
  • presentations highlighting the work of staff and best practices 
  • provide timely access to data, reports, trends and analysis
  • identifying and addressing challenges related to LCFF implemetation
  • engaging the governance team more intimately in LCFF processes and practices
