Pacifica Assistant Principal Ms. Angelita Sandoval led our Teachers, Parents, Staff and Students, in our 2nd LCAP Meeting held tat the district office, where everyone had a chance to provide input and help formulate the school site goals . At this meeting we learned about the Youth Truth Parent Survey where our district has over 34 thousand parents and our district received 2229 on-line responses from parents and 568 on-line responses from Pacifica parents. We all collaborated in finding ways to get more parents to complete the parents survey and be more involved per school site, and shared what is working best in parent participation, so that we as a district can learn from each other and try something new. Pacifica Tritons ROCK!!!
