DLCAPs Fellows

We are a youth representatives on the District Local Control Accountability Plan (DLCAPS) Committee that brainstorms and collaborate on how to impact the LCAP in WCCUSD. We come together from different communities, knowing that youth voice is often forgotten or ignored in district decisions regarding spending, and hope to spark change through breaking down barriers of ageism and addressing flaws in district money distribution.

Our mission is to organize youth power to ensure that youth voice and opinions are implemented in the LCAP document. We work together to advocate for our fellow classmates and ourselves in our schools by holding spaces where we can speak freely and plan together. We empower youth to speak out and take agency over their education. We acknowledge that there are a lot of full time working adults and even kids that cannot attend DLCAP meetings; it is because of them that we exist. We are the reminders that just because they are not present in district meetings doesn't allow for the district to forget them or leave them behind.
