California School Parent Survey 2018-19

Johnstonville Elementary School


Please take a few moments to fill out this survey. If you have any questions, please contact Scott Smith at

If you have more than one child at this school, you need only complete one survey, please use your oldest child as a reference when answering questions.

The purpose of this survey is to obtain parent perceptions about the school. Your participation is voluntary.

It is also very important. The information you provide will help guide school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning supports, and improve student achievement. 

This is an anonymous survey.  It is designed so that no one can be identified from the data.  You do not have to respond to any questions that you feel could be used to identify you.  Simply skip the question.

The results are for the use of your district.  The California Department of Education and WestEd will preserve data confidentiality and refer any data requests to the district.


Johnstonville School District Budget Advisory Committee 

Each year before June 30, the Johnstonville School Unified School District Board of Trustees is required by law to pass a district budget. Before that happens, there is a six-month process to develop the district's budget.
The annual budget process begins in December and continues into the spring when the Governor releases his proposed budget for the fiscal year beginning next July 1.  The district reviews the current budget and begins to develop next year's budget based on the Governor's proposal. In May the Governor will release the May Revise. This is essentially a revision to his January proposal but based on several more months of economic data.
The Budget Advisory Committee (BAC) has the responsibility for proposing budget recommendations to the Superintendent, particularly in times of reductions in the state education funding or when revenue does not meet projections and budget cuts are needed. The BAC starts with the projected budget, created by the Business Manager as a starting point for its deliberations. The BAC is free to recommend changes to the budget, keeping in mind the necessity to pass a balanced budget. 
Johnstonville Elementary School Unified School District desires for diverse stakeholder representation. Membership should include representation from both certified and classified staff, parents, and community members. The committee will meet monthly to develop recommendations for the next year's budget.
Please contact Scott Smith at (530)-257-2471 or if you are interested in participating in the Budget Advisory Committee.

Whether you serve as a member or simply attend the meetings, we hope to see many parents and community members involved!

  • Annually develop and approve the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA)
  • Review and revise District/School Safety Plan
