The LCAP input survey is now closed. The results of the survey will be shared with the Oak Grove Board of Trustees on May 12.
Under LCFF, the responsibility for allocating funds to meet students’ needs is given to local governing boards. To demonstrate how funds will be used to address eight priorities established by the state, school districts must develop and approve a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) no later than July 1 each year. This three-year plan is to be updated annually. Once approved by the Board of Trustees, the LCAP will be the basis for expenditures in the District budget.

Under a new law known as SB 277, beginning January 1, 2016, exemptions based on personal beliefs will no longer be an option for the vaccines that are currently required for school entry in California. All incoming Transitional Kindergarten (TK) and Kindergarten students must provide proof of vaccinations in order to register. If your child is currently in sixth grade and has a personal beliefs exemption on file for one or more vaccines, he/she will not be allowed to start seventh grade until he/she completes the required vaccines or is in the process of receiving a series of required vaccines and is not overdue for the current dose. Personal beliefs exemptions which are already on file for a student who is currently enrolled and attending school will remain valid until the student reaches the next immunization checkpoint at seventh grade. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Oak Grove District Office at (408) 227 8300, extension 100249.
