STRATEGIC PLAN OVERVIEW

The Twin Rivers Charter School Strategic Plan, adopted by the Board of Directors, is the management plan for the Charter School.  The Strategic Plan was originally developed in collaboration with stakeholder groups within the Charter School.  It is a political and compliance document that serves three main purposes.  First, the plan provides the Board’s political direction in addressing the Charter’s vision, mission and ranked objectives.  The staff will present annual data that demonstrates that the staff has successfully addressed the Ranked Objectives.  Second, the Strategic Plan provides the source document used for preparing the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), which provides for compliance with the requirements established by the State.  Lastly, the Strategic Plan, with action taken by the Board in the ranking of the objectives, provides clarity to the Superintendent and staff in addressing the priorities of the Board and community.

 

Fiscal Integrity of the Charter:

The Strategic Plan is designed to ensure that the human, financial, and capital resources are efficiently and effectively allocated based upon the priorities established by the Twin Rivers Charter School Board, with the fiscal integrity of the Charter as the cornerstone foundational requirement of the Strategic Plan.

 

Twin Rivers Charter School Board’s determination of fiscal integrity requires that sufficient funds are in reserve that would address the economic reserve and unforeseen challenges that may come to the Charter, both short-term and long-term.  Accordingly, the Board commits to establish reserve levels, as well as their fund balances, to meet State and local priorities.  Fiscally sound management also requires that the Charter provide funding for the implementation of the Strategic Plan priorities, as evidenced by a balanced budget approved by the Board that is not in deficit spending.  Additionally, the Board is dedicated to ensuring the fiscal integrity of the Charter through providing the necessary funding to maintain the following prudent minimum reserves:

Class Size

 

Recognizing that the Charter is funded based upon average ADA, the Charter shall maintain the average class size in each grade level span as reflected below.  In February of each year, an enrollment report will be provided to the Board by the Superintendent on the class size averages within each grade level span and in each secondary school core class.

 

Kindergarten – Third Grade

24 to 1

Fourth – Eighth Grade

28 to 1

 

Recognizing the need to be competitive and the requirements of the State and those associated with the implementation of Core Standards, all classrooms at the K-6 level shall be grade specific classrooms (combination classrooms will not exist).

 

 

 

Twin Rivers Charter School Strategic Plan

 

Vision Statement:

 

Inspiring and preparing students for academic excellence and cultivating responsible, engaged, and well-rounded citizens.

 

Mission Statement:

 

Twin Rivers Charter School is an innovative TK-8 Independent Charter School that is committed to cultivating all aspects of the child.  In partnership with families, staff, students, and the community TRCS demonstrates creativity and versatility by:

 

➢   Implementing high standards of teaching and learning;

➢   Attracting and retaining dynamic teachers and staff;

➢   Providing a safe, respectful, and supportive environment;

➢   Instilling accountability and personal responsibility;

➢   Promoting parent and community involvement; and,

➢   Preparing students for the next level of educational achievement. 

Strategic Plan and Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) Relationship

 

The Twin Rivers Charter School is committed to addressing the requirements of LCAP, within the context of the Board approved Strategic Plan, by working with interested stakeholders to prioritize available funds and staff; providing each Twin Rivers Charter School child with a quality education.  As specified in the requirements of the LCAP, we will focus additional support to students who are English Learners, from low income households, and who are Foster Youth.

 

The community based Strategic Plan for the Twin Rivers Charter School shall drive the creation of the LCAP Goals for the Twin Rivers Charter School. The Local Control Accountability Plan includes both an annual update of how well the Twin Rivers Charter School has progressed in the prior year, and also what the Charter School intends to address in the coming school year. The LCAP goals shall be addressed, where appropriate, within each Strategic Plan Ranked Objective. To be in compliance, the annual LCAP is approved by action of the Board. The LCAP compliance requirements are discussed within the definitions and chart below.

 

●     LOCALLY ESTABLISHED GOALS AND PRIORITIES

The locally created LCAP focus goals [usually limited to no more than four (4) goals] are designed to address the eight (8) State LCAP priority compliance requirements that are included within the three (3) areas of the Conditions of Learning, Pupil Action, and Engagement.  The LCAP focus goals are selected by the Twin Rivers Charter School to narrow the concentration to address the critical needs of the Charter School, recognizing that each individual goal may address multiple LCAP Priorities and Charter School Ranked Objectives. Within each Strategic Plan Ranked Objective, the LCAP goals that correspond with the Ranked Objective are identified and labeled.

 

●     EXPECTED ANNUAL MEASURABLE ESSENTIAL OUTCOMES/LCAP OBJECTIVES

The described and specific EXPECTED ANNUAL MEASURABLE ESSENTIAL OUTCOMES/LCAP OBJECTIVES for all pupils using, at minimum, the applicable required metrics for related State priorities.

 

●     LCAP ESSENTIAL METRICS

The detailed measurement tools that are used to evaluate performance for the LCAP State Priorities.

 

●     ACTIONS/SERVICES

Events to be performed to meet the Twin Rivers Charter School Ranked Objectives.  

 

Twin Rivers Charter School Strategic Plan and LCAP Process and Timeline

 

Strategic Planning Process:

The implementation of the Strategic Plan follows a yearly updated cycle to ensure that the Plan reflects the priorities defined by the Board of Directors. Implementation of the Plan continues throughout the year and is evaluated, analyzed, and revised annually.

The Charter School ’s Strategic Plan and LCAP shall be closely aligned.  Annually, the Strategic Plan will be approved by the Board in June for the subsequent year.  The approved Strategic Plan shall guide the development of the following year’s LCAP.
