To develop its Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), the Ventura County Office of Education gathers input from all stakeholder groups: parents, teachers, principals, administration, bargaining units, local district personnel, representatives of the English Learner Parent Advisory committee, the Parent Advisory Committee, foster youth and community partners.
The VCOE LCAP committee meets regularly to provide input and guidance on the development of the LCAP. The committee includes parents, teachers, union representatives and administrators. An online survey is used to gather data from all stakeholders. Along with the survey, a link to VCOE standardized performance reports helps guide the process. Parent and community input cards are used to gather comments during in-person meetings. Stakeholder focus groups are another source of input from all individuals who indicate interest in contributing to the creation of the LCAP. The Ventura County Board of Education is provided reports on the development of the LCAP.
