School Site Council Meeting

On Thursday, February 26, the monthly School Site Council (SSC) meeting will be held at 2:40 in the school Library. The PFC board has been invited and, as always, the SSC meeting is open to all members of the community. Mrs. Schuler will make a presentation on the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) components, the LCAP goals, and the various programs and services occurring throughout the school district and Bancroft. Funding resources for Bancroft are geared towards these goals and come from state/district-provided funding as well as PFC fundraising. This will be a time for sharing information, addressing questions and exploring avenues for improvement in our goal area.
