Cautionary Notice: AB 97 (Ch. 47, Statutes of 2013) repealed Education Code 42605, which provided temporary flexibility for specified "Tier 3" categorical programs, and instead redirects the funding for those categorical programs into the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) (Education Code 42238.01-42251). The supplemental and concentration grant portions of the LCFF may be used for any schoolwide or districtwide educational purpose in accordance with state regulations to be adopted by January 31, 2014, with a goal of increasing or improving services for English learners, foster youth, and students eligible for free and reduced-price meals. Certain requirements related to Tier 3 categorical program(s) in the following policy or regulation are no longer applicable.

When required by law or determined to be a useful tool to accomplish district goals, the school site council or other school advisory group shall develop a comprehensive school plan designed to enhance student achievement.

Whenever feasible, any other school plan may be incorporated into the single plan for student achievement.

The Governing Board shall review and approve the school's single plan for student achievement at a regularly scheduled meeting. The Board also shall review and approve any subsequent revisions that include material changes affecting the academic programs for students participating in these categorical programs. The Board shall certify that, to the extent allowable under federal law, the plan is consistent with district local improvement plans required as a condition of receiving federal funding. (Education Code 64001)

The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that members of the site council receive training on the roles and responsibilities of the site council. To the extent necessary, he/she shall ensure that the site council receives the resources necessary in order to perform its role effectively.

School Site Block Grants

The school's use of the funds allocated through this block grant shall be proposed by the school site council or, if the school does not have a school site council, by a schoolwide advisory group or school support group. (AB 1802, Sec. 43, Statutes of 2006)

The Board encourages the school site council to fund the highest priority needs identified in school improvement plans. The school site council shall provide the Board with a written proposal that includes a statement of the identified need(s) and how the funds will be used to enhance the educational program.

Before the funds are encumbered or expended, the Board shall approve the site council's proposed use of the funds. If the Board does not approve the proposed use, the Board shall inform the school site council of the reasons for disapproval and request that the council review and revise its proposal. (AB 1802, Sec. 43, Statutes of 2006)
