LCFF Budget Overview for Parents
For the 2020-21 school year school districts must work with parents, educators, students, and the community to develop a Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (Learning Continuity Plan). The Learning Continuity Plan replaces the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) for the 2020–21 school year and provides school districts with the opportunity to describe how they are planning to provide a high-quality education, social-emotional supports, and nutrition to their students during the COVID-19 pandemic.
School districts receive funding from different sources: state funds under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), other state funds, local funds, and federal funds. LCFF funds include a base level of funding for all LEAs and extra funding - called "supplemental and concentration" grants - to LEAs based on the enrollment of high needs students (foster youth, English learners, and low-income students).

Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff:
Salida Union School District is committed to providing an excellent educational experience and a safe environment for your children. As you know, Stanislaus County has experienced a significant surge in the number of positive COVID-19 cases following the Thanksgiving Holiday. Our public health experts predict we will most likely experience another significant increase in positive cases due to the upcoming holiday season. In anticipation of a surge in cases and the need to provide adequate staffing, the District has made the decision to transition back to Distance Learning for all students during the month of January.
The District will provide your child instruction through our Distance Learning Program from January 11th through January 29th. Beginning on February 1st, your child will resume In-Person instruction. Our teachers will send materials home with your child, including their chrome book, this Friday, December 18th.
If your child is currently enrolled in our Distance Learning program or the Special Education cohorts, there will be no change to their program and they will resume instruction on January 11th. Our middle school students will remain on Distance Learning until such time the County has moved to the Red Tier for two weeks.
We look forward to welcoming our Kindergarten through 5th grade students back for In-Person learning on February 1st. We can all do our part to lessen the spread by washing our hands frequently, avoid large gatherings, and wearing a mask.

Senate Bill 98 established that districts write a Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan for the 2020–2021 school year. The plan addresses how learning will occur during the COVID-19 crisis. The Plan can be viewed below:
