Local Control Accountability Plan
The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001 requires the state and school districts to annually review the academic progress of federally funded Title 1 schools, and to identify schools in need of improvement. These schools are identified as program improvement schools after two consecutive years of not making adequate yearly progress (AYP), as defined by NCLB.Two of Beardsley’s schools, Beardsley Elementary and North Beardsley, have entered program improvement. Both school sites were identified in the area of language arts. When a school is identified in program improvement, all parents who have children who attend the school in program improvement have the right to chose a school that is not in program improvement, and to request a transfer with district-paid transportation. As a parent, you have the right to transfer to San Lauren Elementary, which is not in program improvement.
The district sent home letters to all parents with children attending either Beardsley Elementary or North Beardsley on September 28, 2015, informing them of their right to transfer to San Lauren this school year. As of today, no(0) students have elected to transfer to San Lauren Elementary. School Choice will be available for all parents who have children at North Beardsley and Beardsley Elementary for next school year if the schools do not exit program improvement. Please contact either site (listed below) if you are interested in further information about your child’s right to attend a non program improvement school. This right is available for the current school year.

Education Protection Account (EPA)
Proposition 30, The Schools and Local Public Safety Protection Act of 2012, approved by the voters on November 6, 2012, temporarily increases the states sales tax rate for all taxpayers and the personal income tax rates for upper-income taxpayers.The revenues generated from Proposition 30 are deposited into a newly created state account called the Education Protection Account (EPA). School districts, county offices of education, and charter schools (LEAs) will receive funds from the EPA based on their proportionate share of the statewide revenue limit amount.
EPA is a component of an LEA’s total revenue limit. Accordingly, a corresponding reduction is made to an LEA’s revenue limit equal to the amount of their EPA entitlement.
Pursuant to Article XIII, Section 36 of the California Constitution, school districts, county offices of education, and community college districts are required to determine how the moneys received from the Education Protection Account (EPA) are spent in the school or schools within its jurisdiction. District must annually post on its website an accounting of how much money was received from EPA and how that money was spent.
