In our ongoing effort to best serve our students and families, we are seeking responses to our 2016-17 LCAP questionnaire. The input of our parents is important for us in decision making as we move forward. We want and respect your feedback to the questions in the survey. Working together with our parents, we will be better able to provide the very best educational experience for your children.


Each family needs to complete the survey only once, and should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Survey responses must be completed by Friday, March 3rd.


Three (3) completed survey respondents will be entered to win a $5 gift card to a local merchant. All surveys responses are anonymous and will not be connected to names entered into the gift card drawing.


Parents and guardians will be sent the questionnaire link to their personal email address on file. If your email address has recently changed, please contact the school office to update our records. If you did not receive the email with the questionnaire link, please check your spam folder and then contact the office for further assistance.

What is LCAP?


The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is an important instrument for measuring our progress as a high-performing school district, and we want to illuminate this process as Bowman works to meet new state requirements.


The LCAP is a requirement of the changes to state funding made by the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). The LCFF is the state’s new funding formula for education that provides decision-making power to local education agencies, empowering districts to act based on the needs they see for their students.


In simplest terms, the LCAP is LCFF’s vehicle for transparency and engagement. It is the way that school districts are expected to share performance data, needs, actions, and anticipated outcomes that guide the use of available LCFF funding.
