• Dear Parents, Students and Staff,
    The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a new feature required by the state which outlines goals and activities that districts and county offices of education will implement to educate all students.  Our LCAP must address the state’s 8 priorities set forth by the State Board of Education.  The funding needed to carry out the goals and activities must also be included in the plan. An important component of the plan is input from students, parents, community members and staff.
    Chowchilla Elementary School District (CESD) staff gathers input from each of these populations through the use of meetings and surveys collected over the course of the school year.  If for any reason you have not yet given us feedback on any of the items covered in the state’s 8 priorities you may take the survey listed on the CESD website (www.chowkids.com), call 559-665-8021 or attend an upcoming board meeting. Due to COVID-19 that has postphoned the adoption of the 2020-2021 LCAP and has instead required that a COVID-19 Operations Written Report be presented and adopted by the CESD school Board. The COVID-19 Operations Writen Report  went before the CESD School Board for public input and approval on June 29, 2020 at 1:00pm in the District Office Boardroom, located at 355 N 5th Street, Chowchilla.

    Meetings for the current school year will be held in the District Office Boardroom from 3:45pm - 5:00pm on the following dates:

    September 4th -     Discuss purpose of LCAP, Parent involvement Policy, expenditures, survey data and current goals.
