West Nile Virus Notice
The Sutter County Superintendent of Schools Office plays an important role in the delivery of quality education to the students of this county. We provide direct service instructional programs to nearly 9,500 students annually through infant programs, special education, vocational/ occupational programs, outdoor science, and alternative education. These programs are operated more efficiently by the county than by a school district (with economy of scale) and more appropriately than a school district with confined boundaries. The Sutter County Superintendent of Schools Office provides these services to district students through cooperative agreements among participants.
Feather River Academy Awarded a Six Year Accreditation
Feather River Academy has received its first WASC Accreditation. Not only was FRA rewarded with a six year accreditation, but they only need a one day review after the third year. This is the highest accreditation a school can achieve.
Congratulations to the entire staff at Feather River Academy for their outstanding contributions to the students of FRA. Their efforts were clearly seen as evidence from their Self-Study report when the accreditation team came for their visitation. The WASC team was extremely pleased with the strong and positive relationships between the students and staff. They were also pleased with the efforts of the staff to ensure students are not only attending, but want to attend and maintain the academic rigor necessary for student success after graduation.
LOCAL CONTROL FUNDING FORMULA (LCFF) AND THE LOCAL CONTROL ACCOUNTABILITY PLAN (LCAP) AND ANNUAL UPDATE
Commencing July 1, 2013, the California school finance funding model changed from its historical revenue limit and categorical program approach to a new system called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). The LCFF has been passed by legislation to provide a more equitable, rational and efficient approach to allocating resources to all School Districts. Along with the new funding system is a requirement for each Local Education Agency (LEA) to develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). All LEAs must complete the LCAP and Annual Update each year. The LCAP is a three-year plan for the upcoming school year and the two years that follow. The current 2014-15 plan can be viewed by clicking the link on the right. The Annual Update section of the template reviews progress made for each stated goal in the school year that is coming to a close.
