LCAP Goals 2016 - 2019
- Collaboratively design and successfully implement a “living” Universal, Guaranteed, and Viable Curriculum in each subject and grade level aligned to the new California standards and supported by high quality print and digital materials that details WHAT students will learn and generally WHEN students will learn it emphasizing depth over breadth and inquiry over passivity. (Curriculum Goal)
- Each year for the next four years, significantly increase the achievement of MPCSD’s underrepresented populations: low socio-economic, Hispanic/Latino, African American, Pacific Islander, non-native English speaking students, and foster youth while also increasing the number of students from all subgroups reaching “exceeding standards” on the Smarter Balanced Assessment and local benchmark assessments in ELA and math. (Achievement Goal)
- Over a four year period of time, bring to zero the number of “long-term” English Language Learners who have been in MPCSD longer than five years. (ELL Goal)
- Prioritize student wellness through a continued, focused effort to create safe, compassionate, well-balanced and, bully-free school environments. (Student Wellness Goal)
- Provide meaningful opportunities for parents to continue to engage in learning, feedback, and governance with a particular focus on increasing the number of parents of underrepresented students meaningfully engaged in the education of their children. (Parent Engagement Goal)
 Universal Guaranteed Viable Curriculum is a term modified from one of the twelve Levels of School Effectiveness detailed in his 2003 book What Works in Schools. Marzano details the need for a “guaranteed” (what kids should know and be able to do) and “viable” (when and to what degree they should be able to do it) curriculum; MPCSD has added the term “universal” to describe our comment to the who--all students.
