LCAP Update

What will have the greatest impact on the education of all students in the Travis Unified School District?
 
Parents, guardians, and community members have consulted with us to help develop our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).  The LCAP establishes district priorities, actions, and expenditures related to the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), a new system of school district funding established by the State of California to connect funds and actions to positive outcomes for all children.
 
For general information about the LCAP, please check out our LCAP overview.  To access the draft plan, visit the LCAP Draft 1 page.  Many thanks to all of you who participated in the plan development process.

  • Golden West Partners with No Bully

    Posted by Kirk Parrott at 1/21/2014

    On Tuesday January 14, ten members of the Golden West staff attended a Solution Coach® training. The ten new solution coaches will be available to coordinate Solution Teams to help stop bullying on campus. Solution Teams are convened when a staff member learns that a student has been bullied. The Solution Team consists of the bullyer and any allies of the bullyer as well as four or five students who are known to staff to make consistently good choices. Each member of the Solution Team commits to do one thing to help the target. Individuals report success worth bragging about as they describe the effect this strategy has had on their schools.
