Speak Out for Science – Need Support TODAY!

DEADLINE to Speak Out for Science – Local Control

Accountability Plan (LCAP) Regulations is TODAY!

San Diego STEM Collaboratory Prompts Action and Awareness

Today (July 28th) at 5:00pm is the deadline to submit comments to the State Board of Education (SBE) regarding final regulations for the Local Control Funding Formula and Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) template. Our statewide partner, the California STEM Learning Network, is concerned with the lack of attention within LCAPs to other academic content areas beyond the Common Core State Standards subjects of English Language Arts and Math, particularly the lack of explicit support for science education. To address this, the San Diego STEM Collaboratory, as a regional partner of CSLNet is recommending a change in the LCAP template language that describes State Priority #2. Please contact the SBE to let them know you support CSLNet’s recommendation, by sending the following comment by email to: regcomments@cde.ca.gov*************************************************************************

Suggested Comment:
[Your name or organization] supports the below recommendation to clarify the language for Priority 2 of the State Priorities section of the LCAP template as shown in italics below:Implementation of State Standards: implementation of academic content and performance standards adopted by the state board for all subjects, including the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), English Language Development (ELD) standards, and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), for all pupils, including English learners. (Priority 2)


Please join the San Diego STEM Collaboratory and CSLNet in speaking out in favor of this proposed change to the LCAP regulations by submitting your comments to the CDE today.

Submit comments no later than TODAY at 5pm on July 28th to regcomments@cde.ca.gov.
