Progress Monitoring

Monitoring Our Progress

The Superintendent’s Dashboard is a display of the most important indicators to measure the growth of the system. The metrics selected are aligned to the District’s 4 LCAP goals and this strategic plan. The Dashboard will display the most current performance and help to inform key decisions to move us closer to our mission and vision.

The Dashboard will be capable of disaggregating data, in particular for student performance indicators by student groups, in order to ensure we are serving the whole child, eliminating inequity, and providing each child with excellent teachers, every day.

About the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)

This Strategic Vision and Plan works in support of the District’s Reparations for Black Students Resolution and the Local Control and Accountability Plan. Together, these key planning vehicles drive coherence in the District’s objectives and actions. This plan specifies initiatives, focus areas, and actions for OUSD to reach the LCAP objectives and to realize the opportunities identified by the task force developed from the Reparations for Black Students Resolution.

The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) guides how OUSD utilizes funding from the Local Control Funding Formula and other sources to meet the goals for all students, to better serve high-need students, and to reduce class sizes for grades K to 3. Grounded in our vision for student success, we engage students, parents, staff, and the wider community to develop goals, actions, and measures of progress for all student groups.
