The 2023-2024 Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) and the LCAP Federal Addendum will be presented to the Napa Valley Unified School District Board of Education for Public Hearing at the Board Meeting on June 8, 2023.  The LCAP is a three-year plan that describes the goals, actions, services, and expenditures to support positive student outcomes that address state and local priorities. The LCAP provides an opportunity for local educational agencies (LEAs) to share their stories of how, what, and why programs and services are selected to meet their local needs. The components of the LCAP for 2023-2024 are as follows:

  • LCFF Budget Overview for Parents

  • 2023-24 LCAP:

    • Plan Summary

    • Engaging Educational Partners

    • Goals and Actions

    • Increased or Improved Services for Foster Youth, English Learners, and Low-income students

    • Expenditure Tables

    • Instructions

Within California, in addition to the LCAP, LEAs that apply for Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) funds are required to complete the LCAP Federal Addendum, and the Consolidated Application (ConApp). The LCAP, in conjunction with the Addendum and the ConApp, serve to meet the ESSA LEA Plan requirement.

Pride Logo

For the fourth year in a row, the Napa Valley Unified School District raised LGBTQ rainbow flags at the district office and at its 26 school sites in celebration of, and in solidarity with, the LGBTQ NVUSD community. The flags will be displayed from June 1 through June 14, the last day of school. 

Raising the flag is aligned with the district’s equity policy and nondiscrimination/anti-harassment policy as well as Board Resolution 19-30, adopted in June of 2019. In May 2020, NVUSD’s Board of Education unanimously approved the flying of the rainbow flag on school-owned poles in the district, which encompass campuses in Napa and American Canyon.

“NVUSD is fortunate to have a wonderfully diverse population and is proud to demonstrate support for our LGBTQ students, staff, and people across Napa Valley and American Canyon,” shared Superintendent Dr. Rosanna Mucetti. “As a symbol of inclusion, these flags represent our commitment to ensuring school environments are safe and inclusive for all our students.” 

More information will be shared on NVUSD’s social media sites throughout the month.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond honored seven outstanding math and science teachers from California. These individuals were finalists for the 2023 Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST). Of those seven, NVUSD's own Jonathan Southam, a teacher at New Technology High School, was selected. According to a press release issued by Superintendent Thurmond’s office, “Awards are given to teachers who teach science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and/or computer science from each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Department of Defense schools, and four U.S. territories (as a group). Each applicant must display subject mastery, appropriate use of instructional methods and strategies, lifelong learning, and leadership in education outside the classroom.”

Upon learning of the award, Superintendent Dr. Rosanna Mucetti shared, “We are incredibly proud, but not surprised, to learn that New Technology High School math teacher, Jonathan Southam was selected as a 2023 Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. He Works incredibly hard and aims to provide high-quality, rigorous math instruction, every day, to his high school students. Congratulations, Jonathan!”

Mr. Southam shared, “I’m honored all around. I’m deeply honored to be nominated by a former student. I’m honored to represent our school and district and the work that we do for our students. Teaching is a practice that develops over time and I wouldn’t be the same person without my colleagues and students over the past 11 years. I want to thank all my schools: New Technology High School, Sonoma Valley High School, Redwood Middle School, Sonoma State, Chico State, Johns Hopkins, and the University of Nevada Reno. And of course, most importantly, thank you to my students, past and present, who have taught me the most. You all rock!”

Background (from State press release): Jonathan has been teaching for 10 years. He currently teaches Math I, Math III, and Precalculus. He has spoken at the California Mathematics Council North and South conferences as well as the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Annual Conference. He served as a STEM teacher mentor with Trellis Education in the San Francisco Bay Area to support middle school and high school STEM teachers in their first five years of teaching. The lesson Jonathan submitted was taught in his Precalculus class and explored the product law of logarithms.

Dear NVUSD Families,

Wow, it’s hard to believe May is almost over. Ahead are full calendars, joyful celebrations, and excitement as summer approaches. Before we trade in our backpacks, I want to take a moment to reflect on the 2023-2024 school year. This last year allowed us to continue to stabilize our organization and community post the COVID-19 pandemic. Although we continue to be challenged by the pandemic’s impacts, I am so grateful we have developed the systems, and committed the resources, to be responsive to these challenges. 

One of the systems that allowed us to traverse the pandemic so successfully was the execution of our 2019-2024 Strategic Plan. This document provided our community with a framework for governance, administration, implementation, and improvement. Thanks to our community’s ability to remain steadfastly committed to moving NVUSD through this comprehensive plan, we are poised to continue our upward trajectory.

We shared a little about these successes in our 2023 State of the District presentation. For those who were unable to attend in person or through our NVUSD-TV live stream, we invite you to take a moment (or 93 moments/minutes) to see, firsthand, how NVUSD is prepared to tackle current challenges as well as those that we don’t yet know exist. We are proud of the foundation we have laid, one that provides excellence in education, equity, and enrichment - all in a caring, supportive, and challenging environment. 
If you don’t have 93 minutes to view our State of the District presentation, then please take just 3 minutes to skip to the end. There, our Vintage High School students share what NVUSD means to them in a video they created and produced, titled My NVUSD is. We look forward to ending this year strong and to continuing to keep our most important focus top of mind - our students. Have a wonderful last few weeks of school and a joyful, restful summer!

Students at NVUSD Elementary schools are participating in a schoolwide assembly hosted by community partners Common Ground Society. The assembly aligns with NVUSD’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Plan and our focus on developing strong "Ecosystems of Cariño" for all students. Director III Elementary Curriculum, Instruction, and English Learner Services Matt Manning shared, “Not only does it align with our NVUSD Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion plan but it also helps ensure we are creating safe, caring school communities for all learners.” 

This past week, Canyon Oaks hosted the group. According to Canyon Oaks Principal Stephanie Vasquez, “The assembly's presenters started the conversation about disabilities providing students with practical tools to grow their inclusive muscles. They emphasized that we all have strengths and weaknesses and that the key to inclusion is pushing past the initial fear we all might experience when we encounter differences by finding what we have in common. The message from the assembly encouraged our Mighty Oaks to be brave and simply start by saying hi.”

“This is just one way we work to ensure students of all backgrounds feel safe, welcome, seen, and understood at school, shared Manning. This endeavor has the potential to build strong bridges and understanding between students.”
