LOCAL CONTROL ACCOUNTABILITY PLAN (LCAP)

The establishment of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) as the new funding model for public schools starting in the 2014-15 school year provides new benefits and more responsibilities for school districts in California.  MUSD will have more money to educate English language learners, low income, and foster youth students.  As a consequence of receiving these new funds and being entrusted to make local decisions, the District must create a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) that would govern how the District will use those new funds.  MUSD is required to have a plan by June 30, 2014.

JOINT USE 21st CENTURY EDUCATION CENTER

Milpitas Unified School District (MUSD) and San Jose Evergreen Community College District (SJECCD)  intend to construct and operate a joint-use 21st century education center at Russell Middle School, with  construction to be financed by SJECCD and jointly operated by the parties for the purpose of offering college educational support to the entire Milpitas community.  A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed by the MUSD and SJECCD boards on November 13, 2012 as a guiding document for the Parties with regard to the development of the Joint Use Center and the potential construction, organizational and operational responsibilities of the Parties.   For more information on this joint project with SJECCD, click here.

A Town Hall meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 16, 2014, 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Gymnasium of Thomas Russell Middle School to receive input from members of the community.
