In my home town of Oscoda, Michigan, summer is made up of warm breezy days playing on the beach; combing it for Petoskey stones, watching our kids roam free on the shore & the evenings? Well, the evenings are reserved for bonfires and s’mores. The kids instinctively know that at the very least, one of the adults has s’mores fixin’s in their car & as soon as a flame erupts, the marshmallow roasting begins. This must be why s’mores are one of my most treasured desserts.

We have a new way of funding for public schools in California. Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) gives more control to each school district and how to spend their funding. One of the essential elements of the new funding model involves engaging stakeholders in their ideas and viewpoints. The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) will be developed through the help based on the input of stakeholders (parents, educators,employees and the community).
