District LCAP Committee

Do you want to impact your child's learning experience directly? We invite you to join the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) Committee—a crucial platform where your voice matters.

Why Join the LCAP Committee?

Advocate for Your Child: As a parent, you understand your child’s needs better than anyone else. By joining the LCAP Committee, you can advocate for resources, programs, and policies that directly benefit your child and all students.

Make a Difference: Your insights and perspective can shape educational priorities and funding decisions. Participating contributes to creating an equitable and enriching learning environment for all students.

Community Representation: Ensure your community’s diverse perspectives are heard and considered. Your presence on the committee ensures that decisions reflect the needs and aspirations of all families.

Transparency and Accountability: Be part of the decision-making process and contribute to the transparency and accountability of educational decisions. Your involvement helps ensure that resources are used efficiently and responsibly.

Don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of the change you want to see in education. Sign up for the LCAP Committee and become a voice for your child, your community, and the future. Together, we can create a stronger, more inclusive, and equitable educational system.

Update from Nutrition Services

Nutrition Services notified us that they will no longer be providing free milk a la carte, as they are mandated to serve a complete balanced meal. Milk a la carte is 50 cents or students can take the milk and meal for free. We encourage loading money onto your child's account on Titan School Solutions as needed.

School Site Council

McKinley and PACS School Site Council is seeking new school-site council members! Our school-site council is a decision-making body that helps drive our school-site plan and goals and advises on how we spend our school resources. The school-site council is composed of 5 parents and 5 faculty members. Ideally, we would have a balanced school-site council composed of 1 parent from TK/K, 1-2 parents from 1st-3rd, 1-2 parents from 4th-6th, and 1 parent from 7th-8th. All parents are invited to attend the school-site council meetings, however, elected members will be responsible for voting at these school-site council meetings. If you are interested, please contact Carly Costello at
