Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP): Reinvesting in Education
The LCAP Stakeholder Advisory Committee met during the months of January and February to draft the FSD plan. The Committee developed FSD LCAP Goals, Actions and Services to support the Goals, and identified the metrics to measure student achievement. The LCAP Stakeholder Committee members are from district organizations and departments listed in the LCAP brochure.
During the month of March, FSD parents, staff, or students are invited to Review the posted LCAP draft and to make comments and/or to ask any Questions. The feedback will be reviewed and incorporated into the FSD LCAP draft, as appropriate, and the Superintendent, Dr. Robert Pletka, will provide written answers to individuals with questions.

Learning with the Harlem Globetrotters
On Friday, February 14, the students at Pacific Drive Elementary School got an extra Valentine treat - a visit from two All-Star Harlem Globetrotters. Guinness World Record holders Thunder Law (longest basketball shot at 109 feet 9 inches) and Scooter Christensen (longest duration spinning a basketball on the nose: 5.1 seconds) addressed the very important issue of bullying through an engaging and interactive "The ABC's of Bullying Prevention" presentation. This presentation combined amazing basketball skills with empowering messages and how Action, Bravery, and Compassion can help prevent bullying in schools. The Globetrotters are able to make learning fun with their dazzling basketball skills and through sharing of personal bullying experiences. Children were able to relate as the athletes stressed the benefits of teamwork whether it be the Harlem Globetrotter's team or your friends and classmates. Icons of entertainment traveling the globe for over 88 years, the Harlem Globetrotters continue to break down cultural and social barriers with smiles and laughter.
