The Milpitas Unified School District is considering placing a measure on the June 2014 ballot to renew the existing $84 Parcel Tax, without increasing the rate. A public hearing on this proposed extension will be held in the MUSD Board Room, Bldg. 500, 1331 East Calaveras Blvd., Milpitas, CA on February 25, 2014 at 7:00 p.m., and again on March 4, 2014 at 7:00 p.m.
SPRING STANDARDIZED TESTING - 2014
The Milpitas Unified School District will be administering two types of required standardized tests in 2014:
Computer-based Smarter Balanced Field Tests: April 7-May 16, 2014
Paper-based tests: April 14-May 1, 2014

LOCAL CONTROL ACCOUNTABILITY PLAN (LCAP)
The establishment of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) as the new funding model for public schools starting in the 2014-15 school year provides new benefits and more responsibilities for school districts in California. MUSD will have more money to educate English language learners, low income, and foster youth students. As a consequence of receiving these new funds and being entrusted to make local decisions, the District must create a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) that would govern how the District will use those new funds. MUSD is required to have a plan by June 30, 2014.
JOINT USE 21st CENTURY EDUCATION CENTER
Milpitas Unified School District (MUSD) and San Jose Evergreen Community College District (SJECCD) intend to construct and operate a joint-use 21st century education center at Russell Middle School, with construction to be financed by SJECCD and jointly operated by the parties for the purpose of offering college educational support to the entire Milpitas community. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed by the MUSD and SJECCD boards on November 13, 2012 as a guiding document for the Parties with regard to the development of the Joint Use Center and the potential construction, organizational and operational responsibilities of the Parties.
