Bella Mente LCAP Feedback Requested

Dear Families:

We are almost at the finish line! What a school year! It has been a pleasure to see families, scholars, and teachers working so closely together for student success. What a great time to develop new school goals for our LCAP! As a team we will continue to guide Bella down the path of scholar success.

As you may know, California schools must complete a Local Control and Accountability Plan, or LCAP.  The LCAP is a three-year plan that outlines our goals, actions, services, and budget to improve positive student outcomes. The LCAP also provides an opportunity for Bella Mente to share how, what, and why programs and services are selected to meet our scholars’ needs.

The LCAP is based on our three goals:

  • Bella Mente will offer a California standards based curriculum along with targeted interventions to support academic growth in ELA and Math for all students as measured by statewide assessments and internal assessments. 

  • Bella Mente will provide a safe community for all scholars which promotes health and well-being, creativity, positive social and emotional development, strong staff/scholar relationships, and a sense of belonging as measured by staff/student/family surveys. 

  • Bella Mente will increase parent involvement through collaboration and open communication and continue to build a collaborative culture which promotes creativity, responsibility, participation, and trust among all stakeholders where diversity and equity are valued. 

The rest of the LCAP outlines actions we will take to achieve these goals and how we will budget to support reaching these goals.

We want to hear your opinion on our goals and any other feedback you may have. You can review our 2021-22 LCAP at: https://bellamentecharter.org/lcap-goals/. On this page is a feedback form we would like you to complete by Monday, June 7 at 5:00 p.m. In addition, you can find our 2020-21 Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan update. Due to the pandemic, California switched to this plan for the 2020-21 school year.

Our board will review and approve the LCAP documents at their next meeting, Tuesday, June 8, at 6:30 p.m. You are invited to join us virtually at:
