I could never have dreamt that there were such goings-on in the world between the covers of books, such sandstorms and ice blasts of words… such staggering peace, such enormous laughter, such and so many blinding bright lights… splashing all over the pages in a million bits and pieces all of which were words, words, words, and each of which were alive forever in its own delight and glory and oddity and light. by Dylan Thomas

 

 

The number one strategy that can be done for a students’ comprehension is to have them read independently and then discuss what they have read.

 

 

Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.

LCAP Process Underway In California School Districts

School districts are currently working on the development of its Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). Under the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), districts have much more discretion in how they spend their funding. However, they must develop a detailed plan to show how the money will be used to improve achievement and to meet the needs of low-income students, English learners and foster children. Districts must collect input and suggestions from parents, students, staff and community members. Please see the attached Local Control Accountability Plan Report for more information.
