In June of 2013, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law one of
the most significant changes to the way California's school districts are
funded.This new system - the Local
Control Funding Formula (LCFF) - changes the way the State of California
allocates funds to school districts.The
LCFF provides base funding for all students as well as supplemental and
concentration funding to support students from low income families, English
Learners and foster youth.Under the new
funding rules, school districts are required to adopt a Local Control
Accountability Plan (LCAP) which focuses on eight specific areas which are
considered to be key elements of a high quality educational program.The LCAP describes the actions, services and
expenditures that support student growth with specific goals for students from
low income families, English Learners and foster youth.The LCAP is a three year plan that must be
adopted by July 1, 2014, and updated each year.
We are currently in the process of developing the LCAP.As we develop this plan, it is imperative
that we get meaningful feedback from all stakeholders in the district.As parents, you are one of our most important
stakeholder groups and we need your honest and constructive feedback.To help the district in this process, an LCAP
survey has been created.
Click on the link below to take the survey no later than Tuesday, April 8th, to have your input included in the
first LCAP draft.Thank you for your
commitment to this partnership and our students.
If you need a paper copy of the survey, they are available in the office.
If you have questions about our programs or would like to visit the school, please e-mail Superintendent/Principal, Annette Alberti
Packets are available for new inter-district applicants by clicking here or through our school's office at (916) 655-3235.

Congratulations Students & Staff our API is 889! You are all amazing!! All your hard work paid off!
Report is required by the state's Public Schools Accountability Act (PSAA) of
1999. This report shows how much a school is improving from year to year based
on its API. A school's API is a number that ranges from 200 to 1000 and is
calculated from the results for each school's students on statewide tests. The
state has set 800 as the API target for all schools to meet. Schools that fall
short of 800 are required to meet annual growth targets until that goal is
achieved. API targets vary for each school.

Welcome to Pleasant Grove School
Pleasant Grove is a single-school district that opened in the late 1800s. Many of our students' grandparents, and even some of our staff members, attended school here. We enjoy the benefits of being a central part of this close-knit, multi-generational farming community.
Although we have strong roots in the past, we are a forward-thinking, high-quality school. We value strong fundamental, Standards-based education while employing innovative, engaging teaching techniques to meet the variety of learning needs and styles we encounter. Our vision is one of excellence in action and continuous learning for all of us.
Pleasant Grove students and staff all work hard and expect a lot of each other. Due to our small size, we are able to provide a unique educational experience and ensure that all staff members perform at their best, no matter what their role. We were excited to have our hard work recognized by being named a California Distinguished School in 2008.

No payments will be allowed without your knowledge and authorization through this secure payment system. By providing your home and/or work email address, an email notification informing you of the student's name, purpose of the payment, and the amount of the item will be sent to you each time that a payment is to be processed.
