Dear IUSD Community, I recently wrote to you about the Irvine Unified School District’s (IUSD) plans to update our aging schools to a similar standard as our newer schools, so that all of IUSD’s more than 32,000 students have access to 21st-century instructional technology and learning tools.
Dear IUSD Community, I would like to encourage your participation in the 2016-17 school-funding survey, which is part of the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) process. This first survey kicks off the 10-month LCAP process for the 2016-17 school year, which will help IUSD to identify annual goals, take action on those goa
Dear IUSD Community, Thank you to the nearly 2,500 stakeholders who participated in the Irvine Unified School District’s recent additional investments survey, as part of the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) process. The LCAP is an important part of our annual process because it aligns IUSD’s strategic planning with our budget to ensure we accomplish both State and District goals.
The IUSD Board of Education voted unanimously to elect Lauren Brooks to a one-year term as president and Paul Bokota to a one-year term as clerk before turning its attention to the budget and other matters on Tuesday.
The IUSD Board of Education has adopted a spending plan for the 2014-15 school year. The plan, which reflects the state’s latest projections from May, as well as the district’s priorities from a brand new accountability report, outlines $257.8 million worth of expenditures – both restricted and unrestricted – against $246.9 million worth of total revenue. The difference will be offset by one-time dollars, as IUSD looks to strategically spend down reserves it built up to weather the state’s fiscal crisis.
