The new Local Control Funding Formula gives local school boards control over how to use state funds. Whittier Union is seeking input from parents and interested community members on its Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) that will guide the expenditure of these funds. Meetings will be held at 6 p.m. in the Board of Trustees meeting room on Thursday, Jan. 23; Thursday, Feb. 13; Thursday, March 20; and Wednesday, April 9. Contact: Laura Flores, 562-668-7833 (office)
