0420.1 BP - School-Based Coordinated Program

Philosophy-Goals-Objectives and Comprehensive Plans
Board Policy No.  0420.1
Policy Adopted: December 9, 2010


In order to best serve students with special needs, as well as students participating in designated educational programs, the Governing Board encourages school-based program coordination as a means for achieving flexibility in the use of categorical funds received by each school. The Board believes that resources acquired to assist students in one program can often benefit other students without in any way depriving the originally targeted group.

A school site council shall be established at each school to consider whether or not it wishes the school to participate in school-based program coordination. All interested persons shall have an opportunity to meet in public to establish the site council. (Education Code 52852.5)

The school site council of any participating school shall develop, for approval by the Board, a school plan that addresses the components specified in Education Code 52853. This plan shall be incorporated into the school’s single plan for student achievement required for the state’s consolidated application process. (Education Code 52853, 64001)

Evaluation of each participating school’s educational program shall include an assessment of the school’s effectiveness in meeting the needs of each student population targeted by categorical funds.
