It is the goal of Hickman Community Charter District to implement IPM by focusing on long-term prevention or suppression of pests through accurate pest identification, by frequent monitoring for pest presence, by applying appropriate action levels, and by making the habitat less conducive to pests using sanitation and mechanical and physical controls. Pesticides that are effective will be used in a manner that minimizes risks to people, property, and the environment, and only after other options have been shown ineffective.
Pest Management Objectives:
• Focus on long-term pest prevention using minimal pesticides.
• Elimination of significant threats caused by pests to the health and safety of students, staff and the public.
• Prevention of loss or damage to structures or property by pests.
• Protection of environmental quality inside and outside buildings, in playgrounds and athletic areas, and throughout the Hickman Community Charter District facilities.

Local Control Funding Formula
What is Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)?
LCFF stands for Local Control Funding Formula. This refers to the manner in which the State of California funds school districts. This change is a major change from the way public schools used to be funded and will require some time to transition into this new funding system starting in the 2013-14 academic year.
When does Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) start?
LCFF was approved by the California Legislature and Governor Brown in June 2013, and is effective for the 2013-14 academic year. As of the development of this document, the State Board of Education is in the process of putting the process in place. Currently, school districts are being funded through a hybrid model of the previous model (Revenue Limit) and the new model (LCFF).
What is different?
Under the previous model, there were more than forty categories of funding, each for a specific purpose identified by the State. The LCFF model has basically established three forms of funding, with more local discretion on determining how the funds are spent.
- Base Grant for all students.
- Supplemental Grant (focused on all English Language Learners, Free and Reduced Priced Meal eligible students, and foster youth).
- Concentration Grant (focus on each English Language Learner or Free and Reduced Priced Meal eligible student above 55% of the district-wide enrollment).
How will schools be accountable?
Districts must develop a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) that will better align the academic plan with the district expenditure plan that is approved by the Board Trustees every June. Parents and other stakeholder groups will be invited to participate in the development of the LCAP.
What does the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) measure?
The LCAP must include annual goals in eight specified areas.
- Student Achievement.
- Student Engagement.
- Other Student Outcomes.
- School Climate.
- Parental Involvement.
- Basic Services.
- Implementation of Common Core.
- Course Access.
How is Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) developed?
Districts must establish and prioritize the eight goals listed above and will be required to indicate the steps it will take to meet the annual goals. Districts must use a State Board adopted LCAP template and will solicit input from various stakeholders.
What does student subgroup refer to?
This refers to the subgroups of students to be included in the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). They are the following:
- Black or African American
- American Indian or Alaska Native
- Hispanic or Latino
- Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander
- Two or more races
- Socioeconomically disadvantaged students
- English Learners
- Students with disabilities
- Foster youth
What is the term of the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)?
Currently the LCAP is a three year plan that has to be updated annually.
When will the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) be adopted?
Districts must adopt an LCAP at the same time it adopts a budget, which is prior to July 1st of every year.
