The Weimar Hills School Community is committed to empowering all children to become productive citizens of the 21st Century. Weimar Hills is a comprehensive public school serving approximately 400 fourth through eighth grade students with a dedicated instructional staff and a caring, supportive community situated in the foothills of Northern California. Our attendance area serves families living in Weimar, Applegate, Meadow Vista, Colfax and surrounding rural communities. Fourth through sixth grade students are served primarily on the lower campus with seventh and eighth grades students attending on the upper campus. Weimar Hills partners with Colfax High School to support our students’ preparation for the rigors of high school and postsecondary college and career opportunities.

We believe our children are our most precious responsibility and we work together to provide educational and social opportunities for our students to learn the skills necessary for their future success.

As required by Proposition 98 in 1988, each school must publish annually a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). Current reports will be for the previous year.
What is the LCAP?
The LCAP is a critical part of the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). Each school district must engage parents, educators, employees, & the community to establish these plans. The plans will describe the school district’s overall vision for students, annual goals, & specific actions the district will take to achieve the vision & goals.
The LCAP must focus on eight areas identified as state priorities. The plans will also demonstrate how the district’s budget will help achieve the goals, and assess each year how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes.
What are the eight state priority areas that must be addressed in the plans?
There are eight areas for which school districts, with parent and community input, must establish goals and actions. This must be done both district-wide and for each school.
Providing all students access to fully credentialed teachers, instructional materials that align with state standards, and safe facilities.
Implementation of California’s academic standards, including the Common Core State Standards in English language arts and math, Next Generation Science Standards, English language development, history social science, visual and performing arts, health education and physical education standards.
Parent involvement and participation, so the local community is engaged in the decision-making process and the educational programs of students.
Improving student achievement and outcomes along multiple measures, including test scores, English proficiency and college and career preparedness.
Supporting student engagement, including whether students attend school or are chronically absent.
Highlighting school climate and connectedness through a variety of factors, such as suspension and expulsion rates and other locally identified means.
Ensuring all students have access to classes that prepare them for college and careers, regardless of what school they attend or where they live.
Measuring other important student outcomes related to required areas of study, including physical education and the arts.
The Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) is a plan of actions to raise the academic performance of all students. California Education Code sections 41507, 41572, & 64001 & the federal Elementary & Secondary Education Act (ESEA) require each school to consolidate all school plans for programs funded through the ConApp & ESEA Program Improvement into the SPSA.
