Annual Update to the 2017-2020 LCAP Plan

The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and its local accountability counterpart, the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) were implemented with the idea that California must do a better job for its underperforming students, who in fact make up a sizable portion of the state’s school-age population.

Consolidated Classroom Donation

One of the highlights of your child’s school year is the wonderful opportunity for class field trips. Carlton Home & School Club collects the Consolidated Classroom Donation (CCD) at the beginning of the year to simplify accounting for parents, teachers, and the treasurer. This is a one time donation that pays for field trips & classroom project expenses not covered by the HSC budget.
