This session will describe an innovative process to ensure student and community voice in the development of the district LCAP. Sweetwater Union High School District will provide background on the first ever State of the District event, which included showcases, performances, alumni guest speakers, and school discussions facilitated by students. This event was a chance for our community to gather to see what schools are doing and to actively participate in the district’s vision for each student. Participants will understand the techniques used to train school leaders and their students using a protocol that engaged each school community in a discussion around our four LCAP goals.

Audience: Middle Teacher, High School Teacher, Middle School Counselor, High School Counselor, Middle School Administrators, High School Administrators, Superintendent, District Office Leaders
