LCAP Goals for MUHSD

  • LCAP Goal #1 - All Students College and Career Ready
  • LCAP Goal #2 - Equitable Access
  • LCAP Goal #3 - School Climate
  • LCAP Goal #4 - Recruit & Retain Staff



The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) became California's school funding structure in 2013-14. It provides funding for all students, and additional funding for districts who serve a large population of Foster Youth, Low Income and English Learner students. The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) explains how the district will use the additional funds to support identified students and provide them with an equal opportunity to succeed.



Superintendent Goals

Among the many responsibilities that come with serving as a school board member, the board also sets goals for the Superintendent. The 2023-2024 goals are displayed below.

  • English:

    1. English departments will create and administer a district assessment for the 3rd and 4th quarters for English 1-4 that reflects the district focus on student-centered and skills-based instruction. These courses will also give the reading inventory at least twice per year providing individual data for teacher use and aggregate data for site and district use.
    2. Review the Read 180 pilot data and work with teachers to establish the district expectation of annual growth for a student. This data will then be collected and reviewed annually to evaluate the effectiveness of the program and identify any additional supports or modifications needed.


    1. Quarter local assessments will be given to math students in Integrated Math A, Integrated Math 1, Integrated Math 2, and Integrated Math 3.
    2. A pre and post test will be given to students in the aforementioned math courses.
    3. Individual student growth will be measured beginning with the quarter 1 local assessment and concluding with the post local assessment.


    1. Through their MTSS work, sites have established a program to recognize student progress toward reaching site-identified goals. The target for 2023-2024 is for 50% of the student body to reach those goals and be recognized. Each site will review their data at the end of the year to make adjustments or modifications to their program.
    2. Administrative walk-throughs will include skills/4Cs for 2023-2024. Aggregate data from each site will be used at the end of the 1st semester to establish a baseline and targeted growth for the 2nd semester.
