Dear IUSD Community,
I would like to encourage your participation in the 2016-17 school-funding survey, which is part of the 10-month Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) process. This is the second of two funding surveys. The first survey was sent to the IUSD community last September and asked for your feedback about District priorities. Based on your responses, the District developed a series of proposed actions. This survey is to review those actions and investments with you, and to request your input.
The survey is divided into four brief sections:
- New proposed actions and investments
- Ranking of additional funding priorities, should the District receive additional state funds this May
- A review of actions, using one-time funding, recommended for extension for one or two additional years
- Open comment section
This interactive process helps IUSD identify annual goals, take action on those goals, and measure progress on academic achievement, school climate and parent engagement. Your input is critical to IUSD’s decision-making process and will help guide investments in the District’s priorities.
To learn more about the state’s funding system, including the Local Control Funding Formula and the LCAP, and to see the results of the fall 2015 survey, visit iusd.org/LCFF-LCAP/. To view an informational summary of the proposed LCAP actions, click here.

Thank you in advance for your participation. Your engagement, partnership and support continues to enable IUSD to best serve our students.
