Local Indicators Priority 3 Survey
Each year, public school districts are required to report on a number of “local indicators,” which are data points that the state does not have the means to collect. One of these required indicators is Parental Involvement and Family Engagement (LCFF Priority 3). We would appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to complete this survey. 
Educational Partners Advisory Committee
A wide variety of school endeavors require collaboration between the school district and its educational partners, who may be staff, parents, and community partners. Last year our partners provided valuable input on our COVID safety plans, the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) and our local performance indicators. The next Educational Partners Advisory Committee meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 11th at 4:00 via Zoom. In case that time does not work for some people, another meeting (on the same topics) will be held on Thursday, May 12th from 9:00 to 10:00. We will review progress towards our LCAP goals.

About Us

Big Lagoon School is a rural public elementary school serving grades serving students in Transitional Kindergarten to Grade 8, situated on a 10-acre site, 26 miles north of Eureka, California. The school is located just off Highway 101, surrounded by a Sitka Spruce forest.
Our students enjoy the benefits of being a five-minute walk from a large freshwater lagoon and miles of sandy beaches and dunes, with a habitat rich in environmental opportunities associated with coastal Pacific lands. The district is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean on the west, Big Lagoon County Park and the Big Lagoon Rancheria to the north, Simpson Lumber Company land to the east, and Patrick's Point State Park to the South.
