Coolidge Selected for 2017 Honor Roll

On behalf of our entire school community I want to say congratulations to you and your kids! Our school was chosen by Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE) as a 2017 California Honor Roll recipient!

LCAP Parent Input

The State of California requires that school districts develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP is a critical part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) which requires school districts to gather input from students, teachers, parents, community members, and public agencies to determine the goals, actions, and budget priorities for the district. Please click the title above, LCAP Parent Input, above to take the survey.
