HOME OF THE MUSTANGS
Middletown High School will provide each student with the opportunity to achieve the maximum growth of which he or she is capable, in order to become a competent adult in a changing world. The school program is directed to helping each student develop a feeling of self-worth, to be able to make decisions and accept responsibility for them, to understand change and how it may be influenced, to recognize the interdependence of people, to recognize the variety of cultural heritages, to develop a commitment to the attainment of a more democratic society and to live in harmony with our environment.

What is the A/B Block Schedule?
The A/B Block modifies our current Block schedule to stretch the classes out over the course of an entire year. We appreciate the benefit of the longer class periods in terms of in depth-instruction; however, we were challenged with the students not being in core classes for an entire year. Through Common Core Training, as well as our WASC Accreditation Review it was recommended to find a solution. The A/B schedule addresses this.
The A/B Block schedule will retain our 85 minute class periods. Students will attend four classes on 'A' days and then four different classes on 'B' days. In the end, students will go to each class every other day, attending class three times every six days (ABABAB). We piloted this schedule in a few classes this year with much success, and are very excited to implement it school wide for the 2015/16 school year.
LOCAL CONTROL ACCOUNTABILITY PLAN (LCAP)
There will be a community LCAP meeting held on Thursday, April 16th beginning at 6:00 pm in the Middletown Multi-Use room.
Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is California’s formula for determining the level of state funding provided to districts to provide for their state-supported general and supplemental programs. The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is LCFF’s vehicle for transparency and engagement. It is the way that school districts are expected to share performance data, needs, actions, and anticipated outcomes that guide the use of available LCFF funding.
The goal of the community planning process is to gather feedback on the design and implementation of the district’s priorities for the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). To accomplish this, we are gathering community input. Your participation is critical in this decision-making process, and we appreciate your assistance.
