The county agency will officially certify the results by the end of the month.
The 2016-17 school funding survey, which is part of the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) process closes Monday, May 16.

Your input is critical to IUSD’s decision-making process and will help guide investments in the District’s priorities.
