Our Committees

Students are more successful when family and community publicly and consistently support the students’ activities and learning. LFCSA views parents and guardians as partners and values their involvement in all facets of school life, from volunteering in the classroom to sharing ideas with school leaders.

For that reason, LFCSA parents are strongly encouraged to volunteer at our school by joining one of our committees and assisting with maintenance of the site, classroom set-up, infrastructural and administrative support or in the classroom with the project based curriculum, field trips, etc.



The School Site Council (SSC) is an elected group of parents, teachers and staff that helps develop and oversee the school’s plans. State and Federal laws require us to have strategic plans that (1) determine and explain our goals and strategies for improving achievement for all students, and (2) indicate how the school’s budget supports these goals and strategies.

LFCSA’s Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) describes our school’s annual goals, and the strategies it will use to achieve those goals, in eight priority areas required by the state:

  • Student Achievement
  • Student Engagement
  • Other Student Outcomes
  • School Climate
  • Parent Involvement
  • Implementation of Academic Standards, including a focus on English Learners
  • Course Access
  • Basic Services, including facilities, qualified teachers, and instructional materials

LFCSA revises its LCAP annually.  Our current LCAP can be found here: LFCSA LCAP 2018

LFCMSA revises its LCAP annually.  Our current LCAP can be found here: LFCMSA LCAP 2018

A critical part of shaping our school priorities is getting input from parents.  If you have any suggestions, please feel free to share them with the SSC at sitecouncil@losfelizarts.org.

Parents are also welcome to share their input in person at a SSC meeting.  The SSC meets once a month during the school year, usually on the first Monday of the month at 5 pm.  By law, meeting agendas are posted at least 72 hours before each meeting.  If you have any questions about the site council please contact

Consistent with the California Education Code, each school is required to establish a “Safety Committee” composed of all stakeholder groups, which is accountable for preparing and annually updating the safe school plan. The LFCSA safe school plan consists of two volumes: Volume One, Prevention Programs, and Volume Two, Emergency Procedures.
