*_Project Overview: _*

Seniors at Berkeley High School Green Academy are taking action to 
identify key priorities and strategies for the way Berkeley Unified 
School District should allocate LCFF funding to close the opportunity 
gap. Through the Y-PLAN (Youth-Plan-Learn-Act, Now!) 
<http://y-plan.berkeley.edu/>, a model of civic-led work based learning 
developed by UC Berkeley's Center for Cities + Schools (CC+S), students 
will work with UC Berkeley "mentors," and other civic and school leaders 
to conduct community research and create evidence-based proposals for 
change. The Y-PLAN follows a 5-step process of critical inquiry modeled 
on the participatory planning process, simultaneously building capacity 
of young people and civic partners as they work and learn together 
around a real community issue. Students have narrowed their focus to 
three key priority areas, and will present their final proposals to a 
panel of key stakeholders and community members in April:

·       Priority #1: Basic Necessities

·       Priority #5: Student Engagement

·       Priority #7: Access to Courses

Y-PLAN Project Question: /How should Berkeley Unified School District 
spend the LCFF (Local Control Funding Formula) money to close the 
achievement/opportunity gap in BUSD?/

·       What are the top 3 priorities in LCFF that BUSD should focus the 
LCFF money?

·       What specific goals and actions should BUSD take in these three 
priority areas?

·       How should BUSD be held accountable, and how will success be
