The new Local Control Funding Formula marks a dramatic change for California school funding. SIATech is working to create the required Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) that provides a three-year plan for how the school will improve student learning.
This website provides a virtual venue to interact with students, staff, families, and other stakeholders to collaboratively develop the LCAP. Along with offline surveys, open houses, newsletters, focus groups, and more, this website is considered the hub of where it will all come together.
We’re glad you are here.
SIATech has emphasized dropout recovery since its school concept was initially founded in 1998. The network of several charter school campuses in California provide a safe and caring environment for students to chart an individual learning plan. Every student who enrolls at SIATech meets with the principal or other leader to evaluate where he or she is academically and where they need to be in order to meet his or her lifelong goals.
What makes our schools unique is an emphasis on helping students master academic concepts while obtaining the career skills they need whether they want to go on to more education or directly into a career. In partnership with Job Corps and Workforce Investment Act partners, SIATech provides an important service to low-income students in need. Its high-quality credentialed instructional staff are there to teach and guide students.
We excel at getting students back in school and back on-track to graduation. One measure of this success is the number of graduates. More than 8,000 California dropouts have returned to school and earned their high school diploma. Approximately 87% go on to college or career within six months of graduation.
