In addition to directly supporting LCAP Goal 8, design strategies for Safety and Security support LCAP Goal 4 by creating a positive school climate. The learning environment plays a direct role in how students and teachers develop healthy relationships. The relational interaction between human, environmental, and technological tenets is fundamental to building safer schools.
Future design teams must create spaces where students feel comfortable with their physical and human surroundings and contribute to building a positive school climate. According to stakeholders in the Core Planning Group, schools are a haven for some students who are navigating barriers to safety in their neighborhoods, providing them with a daily experience centered around their health and wellbeing.
Goal 1: College & Career Readiness
100% of SCUSD students will graduate college and career ready with a wide array of postsecondary options and a clear postsecondary plan. Growth in Graduation Rate and College/Career Readiness will be accelerated for Students with Disabilities, English Learners, African American students, American Indian or Alaska Native students, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander students, Foster Youth, Homeless Youth, and other student groups with gaps in outcomes until gaps are eliminated.
Goal 2: Foundational Educational Experience
Provide every SCUSD student an educational program with standards-aligned instruction, fidelity to district programs and practices, and robust, rigorous learning experiences inside and outside the classroom so that all students can meet or exceed state standards.
Goal 3: Target Support for Students
Provide every student the specific academic, behavioral, social-emotional, and mental and physical health supports to meet their individual needs - especially English Learners, Students with Disabilities, Foster Youth, Homeless Youth, African American students, American Indian or Alaska Native students, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander students, and other student groups whose outcomes indicate the greatest need – so that all students can remain fully engaged in school and access core instruction.
Goal 4: Culture & Climate
School and classroom learning environments will become safer, more inclusive, and more culturally competent through the active dismantling of inequitable and discriminatory systems affecting BIPOC students, Students with Disabilities, English Learners, Foster Youth, and Homeless Youth.
Parents, families, community stakeholders, and students will be engaged and empowered as partners in teaching and learning through effective communication, capacity building, and collaborative decision-making.
Goal 8: Basic Conditions & Services
SCUSD will maintain sufficient instructional materials, safe and clean facilities, core classroom staffing, and other basic conditions necessary to support the effective implementation of actions across all LCAP Goals.
