In 2013-14, the state of California changed the way it funds school districts. The new model, called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), allows districts more freedom in how funds are spent but also requires the development of a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) that aligns spending to specific district goals for student achievement.
The SAC serves as the main representative body of students to work in partnership with Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD) administration and the SCUSD Board of Education to collaborate on school site and district-wide policy and strengthen the student voice. The support of our district Board Members and Superintendent has made this process a comprehensive part of the SCUSD culture. The combination of administrators and students innovatively working together to achieve academic excellence is helping to provide the highest quality of governance and success in our schools.
