The approval of a Local Educational Agency Plan by the local school board and State Board of Education is a requirement for receiving federal funding subgrants for NCLB programs. The LEA Plan includes specific descriptions and assurances as outlined in the provisions included in NCLB. In essence, LEA Plans describe the actions that LEAs will take to ensure that they meet certain programmatic requirements, including student academic services designed to increase student achievement and performance, coordination of services, needs assessments, consultations, school choice, supplemental services, services to homeless students, and others as required. In addition, LEA Plans summarize assessment data, school goals and activities from the Single Plans for Student Achievement developed by the LEA’s schools.
The most recent LEAP for the Wasco Union High School District was Board approved on July 14, 2011. The LEAP was developed by the District Site Leadership Team (DSLT) after a comprehensive needs assessment was conducted in the District. The DSLT is comprised of district and site administrators, as well as teachers and counselors representing both school sites. The DSLT monitors the LEAP quarterly and the action plan is revised annually.
The revised action plan is updated annually to reflect the work that has been accomplished and guides the new work through a series of strategies, tactics, and action steps. The Board of Trustees is formally updated on LEAP implementation progress twice per year, and keeps abreast of student academic achievement during the year through a variety of presentations by district and site administrators.
