Parents! We invite you to take part in our district’s Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) Family Survey. We appreciate your input as we plan our programs for next year. The LCAP survey will be open from Monday, February 20, 2018, through Friday, March 9, 2018. You can access the survey by clicking on the link for your student’s school below, and it is available in English and Spanish. We thank you for your help as we work together to raise up caring, creative, and confident children.
We regularly check the air quality index levels by using the Real-time Air-quality Advisory Network (RAAN) monitoring system for information on how to modify outdoor physical activity. This guidance can help protect the health of all children, including teenagers, who are more sensitive than adults to air pollution. Air quality flags are displayed daily with the forecasted level. Due to the possibility that the air quality can change, you can go to the RAAN widget links below to check current conditions throughout the day:
Tulare City Schools has started a transition to a more helpful form of grade reporting called standards based grading. This type of reporting method precisely identifies what standards students know and can do, as opposed to simply averaging grades, which can sometimes mask what a student has and has not learned. We are excited to begin the pilot process in select 1st through 6th grade classrooms this year. Then, beginning with the 2018-2019 school year, we will be using standards based grading district wide in grades 1-6. For further information and additional resources, please visit the Student Academic Progress page.
Title IX protects people from discrimination, based on sex, in education programs or activities that receive federal financial assistance. Title IX states:
“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”
