Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan

  • Sonora Elementary Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCAAP)


    The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (Learning Continuity Plan) is a key part of the overall budget package for K-12 that seeks to address funding stability for schools while providing information at the local educational agency (LEA) level for how student learning continuity will be addressed during the COVID-19 crisis in the 2020–21 school year. The provisions for the plan were approved by the Governor and Legislature in June in SB 98 and can be found in EC Section 43509.

    The Learning Continuity Plan is intended to balance the needs of all stakeholders, including educators, parents, students and community members, while both streamlining engagement and condensing several preexisting plans. In particular, it was important to combine (1) the intent behind Executive Order N-56-20, published in April 2020,which envisioned an off cycle Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) due December 15th, and (2) the ongoing need for LEAs to formally plan to return to school in the midst of the uncertainty and of COVID-19, without requiring two plans. The Learning Continuity Plan replaces the LCAP for the 2020–21 school year.

    Please visit the California Department of Education website for more information on LCAAP. CDE Learning and Attendance Plan

    The Sonora School Board is seeking “Parent “ and “Community” representatives to serve a four-year term on the Citizens Oversight Committee. The purpose of the Citizens Oversight Committee (COC) is to inform the public concerning the expenditures of bond revenues. The committee normally meets on a quarterly basis. An interested citizen would need to be a parent who has a child enrolled at Sonora Elementary or a person living within the Sonora Elementary school district boundaries. Please contact John Baker @ 532-5491 for further information.

    Dear SES Families,


    After long days of smoke in the environment due to fires, I am glad that we finally got some rain. The number of COVID cases tremendously dropped in the last four weeks. Tuolumne County has the lowest number of cases in the Eastern area of California. Hopefully, with time, COVID will disappear, and it will be history to us.


    Since our school's reopening, which occurred on September the 8th and 14th, everything is going according to plan. Drop-off duty aides are checking the temperature of each child who exits the car in the morning. Students are staying in their cohorts with their teachers. The school is adding six dual handwashing station next week to encourage students to wash their hands. We are marking the ground at the amphitheater and various location of SES campus that indicates physical distancing. Furthermore, we are providing free breakfast and lunch until December.


    The school is very concerned with learning loss since the March closure mandated by the Governor. Teachers are assessing students to find out their current academic level in math, writing, and reading. Title 1 math has already started and is providing additional math support for students who regressed. Title 1 reading will begin on Monday of next week to also provide additional reading support to students.


    Have a wonderful weekend!!!
