The mission of the Sylvan Union School District is to provide a dynamic, broad-based education that prepares each child to be a contributing member of society.
To achieve this mission, we embrace the following instructional norms ...
The Sylvan District Board of Trustees approved the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) at the June 7, 2016 Board of Education meeting.
The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is a major change to how California has supported school districts. Through LCFF districts are required to provide a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) that is written from stakeholder feedback. Stakeholders include parents, students, staff, and community members. In addition, this shifts California from treating funding as an input to support students to a resource that is linked to performance expectations.
LCFF also emphasizes equity and provides funding for English learners, low income students, and foster youth referred to as supplemental and concentration grants. Sylvan District does not meet the minimum percentage requirement to receive concentration grant funds. The State budget projects the timeframe for full implementation of LCFF to be eight years beginning in 2013-2014.
The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) provides an opportunity for districts to share their stories of how, what, and why programs and services are selected and provided to support positive student outcomes across a broad spectrum of areas. Sylvan District’s LCAP was developed through feedback at multiple meetings and from on-line responses from our stakeholders.
Flyer Approval & Distribution
In the past, our schools sent flyers home in students’ backpacks. As part of our effort to be more environmentally sensitive and efficient, we have moved from paper to a digital flyer delivery system. As of November 4, 2015, e-flyers will be sent directly to parent email addresses and posted on each school's website for easy access. All flyers may be accessed by clicking on the Peachjar logo located on the homepage.
Our schools will reduce copy and paper costs. In addition, the paperless delivery of school e-flyers removes a significant burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers. School-approved e-flyers will keep you informed of upcoming school activities, programs, and events. And our students’ backpacks will be a little bit lighter!
Our district cooperates with approved community partners by posting eflyers online and distributing them electronically through our service provider, Peachjar. As part of our efforts to be more environmentally friendly, embrace innovative technology, and maintain fiscal responsibility, we have transitioned from paper to electronic flyer delivery.
To request flyer approval, follow the steps below. Once approved, your flyer will be emailed to all parents and posted online. Paper flyers from outside organizations will no longer be distributed.
Your flyer will be automatically submitted to the district office. District staff will review the material and approve or deny based on the standards below. Peachjar charges a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers to each school.
If you have any questions about this new system, please contact the Superintendent's Office at (209) 574-5000 extension 202 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
