The Merced Union High School District invites parents, teachers, students and community stakeholders to participate in the review and development of the Local Control Accountability Plan. We look forward to the successful implementation of our plan, as well as the community’s thoughts and ideas toward increasing student achievement and enhancing services for our students.
Aligned with Merced Union High School District goals, MHS develops a yearly plan to address the specific needs of Merced High School students and staff. The plan includes information about district and school priorities, elements of the yearly plan, person or persons responsible for implementation and evaluation of the various plan elements, expected completion date and funding source. For those items that are supported by categorical funds, allocations and the budget require approval by the School Site Council. The plan requires annual Board approval.
By February 1 of each year, every school in California is required by state law to publish a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The SARC contains information about the condition and performance of each California public school. Under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) all local educational agencies (LEAs) are required to prepare a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), which describes how they intend to meet annual school-specific goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities. Additionally, data reported in an LCAP is to be consistent with data reported in the SARC.
