    I appreciate the hard work by staff, students, families and community that went into this LCAP. I'm excited about investments towards a restorative restart to school with a focus on relationships and building anti-racist community schools, with increased mental health & family engagement services. I wish there had been more time to digest the Annual Update & LCAP plan and echo PLAN's calls for user-friendly and language accessible summaries. I urge the Board to honor the work of its advisory committees by amending the LCAP at a later date to incorporate written responses to the full recommendations of the PSAC, which included recs of all advisory committees. The current doc only responds to some of PSAC's recs. My concern about bundling of distinct actions into "mega-actions" remains, although I appreciate some effort to address it in this draft. My hope is that staff will work with ACOE to more fully address this issue in an amended LCAP & more specific table of expenditures by Sept.

    Only selected Elementariness, Middle Schools and High Schools have a music program, and the schools that sustain monetarily their programs are less than 5. This is not equitable and is not in line with the education code and relies on the economic advantage of parental support and privilege. Research has shown that arts education not only decreases feelings of anxiety, depression and isolation, but positively impacts all around academic performance, yet there is no plan to leverage these programs for our students’ return in August. Students in the arts are 5 times more likely to stay in school 3 times more likely to get a bachelor degree 4 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement. Especially important in this time of trauma and upheaval
    The expansion of the VAPA programs across the district is vital to our students.

    My name is Sasha Ritizie, resident of district 5, aunt of 4 children at OUSD schools. I am here today as a community leader and Senior Parent Organizer at Bay Area PLAN to talk about the LCAP. The LCAP draft is only available in English making it difficult for families that do not speak english to be engaged in the review of the LCAP. Nearly one-third of OUSD students are English Language Learners, by not providing translation a significant portion of our community does not have the opportunity to provide feedback. Prioritize language access in all of its forms, create a budget for interpretation/translation services, use accessible language, provide on-site interpreters where need is demonstrated.

    My name is Bilquis Alawi, Arabic Parent Organizer with
    Bay Area PLAN, I'm connected with many parents of OUSD schools. I am here today to represent Arabic Speaking Families to talk about the LCAP. The LCAP as written is not community friendly. The draft is nearly 80 pages long and is challenging for the families impacted by the LCAPs details to understand. To keep our kids safe it is imperative this information is disseminated so that is easy for families and community members to follow. I am calling on the district to create a highlight of the LCAPs goals with a thorough summary indicating how funds will be distributed.

    My name is Shaniah , resident of district 5. I am here today as a community leader with Bay Area PLAN. Transparency surrounding upcoming budget decisions has been less than satisfactory. The Fiscal Transparency Dashboard for OUSD is displaying information from the 2019-2020 school year as of last week I learned the individual responsible has been laid off and not rehired. As a community member it is my right to know how, when, and where OUSD intends to allocate public education funds especially when math and reading proficiency averages for OUSD schools are below the CA state average. I am calling on the district to create a highlight of the LCAPs goals with a thorough summary indicating how funds will be distributed.
