The BaySci District Network strand has established an online community for current and past BaySci District Network participants to provide easy access to sharing materials and to communicating with groups across the network.

The Lawrence Hall of Science and BaySci team, in partnership with other STEM education groups across California, has created a toolkit to help educators, parents, students, community partners, and business leaders participate in the development of their school district’s Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) in support of science and environmental literacy. LCAPs are part of a process that requires all school districts to involve their community as they develop and publicly report on their annual program priorities and budget plans. We feel it is more important than ever that local stakeholders get involved to ensure that districts prioritize and support strong science education. We encourage you to read and utilize the toolkit resources to help you become a powerful advocate for science and STEM education in your community.
