LCAP Parent Advisory Committee (PAC)

Parents are our partners. We believe that strong parent engagement supports NUSD and our schools to make the best possible decisions for all of our students. Meaningful engagement of all our Newark families is deeply important to us, because it is through your insights, collaboration, and advocacy that we are able to continue to improve services to all of our students through Local Control and Accountability Plan.

The state of California supports strong local control of school and District goals and funding. The LCAP Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) represents the needs of our students, especially those that historically underserved by our system such as students that are facing economic hardship, are new to the country, are multilingual learners, and from marginalized ethnic groups.

PAC must be composed of a majority of parents. This PAC group, combined with other representatives (such as teachers, students, union members, and school leaders) monitor the implementation of the District’s LCAP. This group’s primary responsibility is to consult, review, and comment on the adoption and updating of the LCAP.

School Site Councils (SSC)

The SSC has responsibility in the development of the School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA), and may fulfill that responsibility in a number of ways. The SSC can be involved in the review and development of improvement plans in a number of ways, but at minimum, the SPSA must be reviewed and approved by the SSC prior to forwarding to the Board of Education for review and approval. 

The SSC members represent the school's student population and consists of two groups: a) school staff and b) parents/guardians and community members. For secondary schools, group b may include students. The main criteria in the composition of the SSC is parity between the two groups (EC Section 65000[a]).

For more information about the SPSA and SSC, please see our SSC Handbook.
