LCAP Survey
The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) survey is open now through the end of February. SBCUSD values input from our families and uses this feedback throughout the LCAP development process. Input from past surveys has been helpful in determining the funding priorities included in the plan. Once again, we are requesting your feedback on how best to serve our students. Your responses are anonymous, and we thank you in advance for taking a few minutes to respond.

In the Spotlight


SBCUSD School of Choice Applications Open Through March 15 for 2022–2023 School Year
San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) believes that all families should have choices and input when it comes to their children’s education. To that end, SBCUSD offers several Signature Programs, middle school lottery programs, and School of Choice options.

If your child is currently enrolled at an SBCUSD school, you can apply now for a change of school for the 2022–2023 school year. The deadline to apply is March 15, 2022.

“School staffing is based on student attendance, which is usually based on the number of children living in a school’s attendance area,” Leonard Buckner, director of Enrollment & Placement Services, said. “However, if students apply early for a change of school, we may be able to alter our staffing, to the extent possible, to accommodate parents’ requests.”

Families are not able to request a transfer to Chavez Middle SchoolRichardson PREP HI Middle School, or Rodriguez Prep Academy Middle School since all three schools are part of the middle school lottery system. Paakuma’ K–8 School does not have space to accommodate any additional students. Middle College High School has a unique application process. Most other SBCUSD schools are available as a School of Choice option.
