Keep on top of the latest updates and upgrades to the LCFF and LCAP at this series of workshops hosted by your Madera County Superintendent of Schools.  We will closely examine the California School Dashboard, local indicators, and the in-and-outs of updating your plan.  This year, each day will also include an "LCAP 101" for district staff new to writing the Plan. We recommend every district have at least two staff members familiar with the LCAP development process.
