LCAP Advisory Committee Applicants wanted
Newark Unified School District
LCAP Advisory Committee Application
November 9 – Dec 8, 2015
In 2013 - 2014, the state of California changed the way it funds school districts. The new model, called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), allows districts more freedom in how funds are spent but also required the development of a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) that aligns spending district goals for student achievement.
One key aspect of the LCAP process is the engagement of parents/guardians and staff in providing input and feedback. Annually, the plan is updated and the committee will meet to review, revise and/or develop new goals. NUSD is in the process of establishing the LCAP Advisory Committee.
NUSD is seeking application for parents and teachers to participate on the advisory committee. If you are interested in participating on this committee you must be available for meetings on the mornings of:
January 21 March 8
April 13 May 10 All
Apply online at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JQ3WVM9.
The deadline for applying is December 8, 2015. The Board will review the applications on December 15, 2015. If you are unable to access online paper copies are available at school offices.

Traffic Safety - seguridad vial
As we begin the school year, Newark Police Department will begin citing drivers whenever necessary to encourage compliance of traffic laws and to reinforce that safety of our children is a priority.
There have been multiple incidents endangering children even a child being struck and several near misses. Please remember that children’s cognitive abilities are still developing and they lack training and experience in traffic safety.
Keys to avoid receiving a citation:
- Drive Slow
- Do not make illegal U-turns
- Have car seats for children
- Have seat belts on all passengers
- Make a “full-stop” at stop signs
Putting our children at risk is not worth the few minutes you may save by rushing and breaking these suggestions. Newark Unified School District and the Newark Police Department want to keep everyone safe.
Safety reminders for children walking to school:
- Walk, don’t run across the street
- Look left, look right and left again
- Obey Walk/Wait signals
- Do not cross at mid-block locations
- Use crosswalks
Safety reminders for children biking to school:
- Always wear a properly fastened and fitted helmet
- Obey all traffic laws
- Ride in the same direction as motor vehicles
- Check traffic when changing lanes, crossing streets or turning
- Use hand signals
