I hope you all had a great short week this week.
On Thursday night we hosted the long-range facilities planning town hall. Representatives from our feeder elementary and middle schools where here to review the sight designs for all of our campuses. All community members that were present were able to get insight into how LPA Design Studios developed improvement plans for each campus. Last spring they met with the leadership at each school site to get input, then came up with design plans based on their inspection of our facilities and leadership input. We were also able to ask questions and propose additional ideas. The visioning session is part of the SRVUSD master plan for the next 15 years. If you did not have the chance to provide input, please consider taking the survey.
Thank you for taking the time to check out this week's update. Have a great weekend!

LCAP Committee Representatives (New)
The District is launching the development of the 3-year Local Control Accountability Plan (2024 - 2027), a State required action and expenditure plan for educational programming aligned to state identified priorities. The committee membership will be composed of staff, students, parents and community members.
Recruitment for LCAP Committee Representatives is underway and will continue until 9/22. Representatives include staff (certificated and classified), parents, students and administrators. Next week we will launch the recruitment campaign on social media and post a message to our website.
Interested individuals should complete this brief survey. The committee will be limited to approximately 30 representatives. If interest is greater than available slots, selection will be based on ensuring a broad representation from across the district.
LCAP Committee meetings are scheduled for the following dates from 5:30 - 7:00 pm and committee members are expected to attend all meetings: October 24, 2023; December 5, 2023; January 23, 2024; March 19, 2024; May 7, 2024

Learning Labs (New)
The Learning Labs are an opportunity during our Tutorial period for students to be matched up with a tutor and get support with a specific skill. Students are identified by their teachers for this opportunity. Students can also sign themselves up. Interested students should speak to their teacher about the self-sign-up process.
We currently have Learning Labs in the following areas: Math, Science, World Languages, and a combined English/Social Studies lab. Labs are not subject specific, rather they are a place to host tutors and their assigned students.
Thank you to our Academic Boosters for their support with this wonderful opportunity!
