Give Back Fridays This Month

We have 2 opportunities for you to “Give Back” to our Hancock teachers and staff by donating your time! We welcome you to visit our “Eagles Nest” during the school day on May 10 and/or May 24 to work on any projects our staff have ready for you. You can work on your own time, as few or as many hours as you have to give. Non-school-aged children are welcome to play while you work, and snacks are available!  Contact Ms Abi with any questions or see the attached flyer.

LCFF Data Forms

Each year the district collects information from our students' families to support the Local Control

Funding Formula (LCFF). The LCFF is legislation that directly affects how or schools are funded, how they are measured for results, and the services and supports they receive. Collection of your income data begins now for the 2024–25 school year. Responses to a very short questionnaire may be submitted through the Parent Portal in PowerSchool, via a parent-specific link in an email from SurveyMonkey, or via a paper survey sent home with your student. Parents should respond only once per child, and all responses will potentially increase the district's opportunity to receive funds from the state. The information is kept confidential and only used for allowed purposes.  

Hancock students whose parents have not completed the Parent Portal or Survey Monkey online survey will receive a paper survey form this week. Please us #2 pencil or blue/black ink only and return to your child’s teacher no later than May 31st. If you prefer to do this online, you can go to your Parent Portal account and complete the 24/25 survey there. If you do the survey on Parent Portal, please return the blank paper form with a note at the bottom that it was done on Parent Portal. For assistance with Parent Portal, please contact Dawn in the Hancock Office.       Letter to Parents about the LCFF Data Collection English  Spanish
