PARENT PORTAL SIGN-UP/ANNUAL RE-REGISTRATION CONFIRMATION
If you have not already done so, parents are strongly encouraged to create a Portal Account which will allow you to update your student’s emergency information in the District’s database. Most importantly, the Parent Portal will allow current VdMMS families to confirm their Re-Registration for the 2015-16 School Year. After reviewing/confirming your demographics on your Portal, parents will print out a Data Confirmation page and bring that to Walk-Through Orientation in August along with Packet Pick Up forms.
The Portal Account is a different system from School Loop, and requires its own set-up. Information regarding creating a Parent and Student Portal account can be found by copying and pasting this link into your browser: https://abi.capousd.org or by going to the district’s main website and under Parents, select Parent Portal/Annual Re-registration. Step-by-step directions are available on this same webpage, too. To create an account, three pieces of information are required:
1) Your home phone number of record in District’s database
2) Your student’s 7-digit ID number
3) Your student’s Verification Pass Code
Note: if you need your student’s ID number and Verification Pass Code, please call the front office and we’ll provide them for you. 949-234-5955.

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.
