Thursday Message From the Superintendent regarding LCFF Data Collection:

This is an important reminder to complete a very short questionnaire that increases San Diego Unified School District’s opportunity to receive funds from the state and could increase opportunities for your own child. The information is collected to support the Local Control Funding Formula process and is kept confidential.

If you have not yet completed the questionnaire, please either sign-in to the Parent Portal page of PowerSchool and complete the short survey or fill out and return the paper form that should have been sent home with your child. By completing the survey, you will not only be supporting the district’s financial efforts but also increasing the chances of your child’s school receiving more of this valuable funding. You may also be eligible for fee waivers for college applications and Advanced Placement exams.

We ask that you complete the LCFF information as soon as possible. Please contact your school’s office staff if you need assistance with the process.

If you have already submitted the LCFF form, no further action is required.

Thank you for your support and have a great evening.
