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. If you haven’t already, please take a moment to participate in this survey. The LCAP process helps IUSD identify annual goals, take action on those goals, and measure progress on academic achievement, school climate and parent engagement. Your input is critical to IUSD’s decision-making process and will help guide investments in the District’s priorities.
Dear IUSD Families, I want to assure you that the news events this morning related to Los Angeles Unified School District’s shut down are not connected to the Irvine Unified School District.
