One of the primary missions of the LPC is to plan for early care and education services based on the needs of families in the local community. Through collaborative efforts with other individuals and organizations interested in the welfare of families, LPCs coordinate and plan to determine local priorities for new state and federal funds.
In accordance with Education Code Section 8499.5, upon approval by the Madera County Board of Supervisors and the Madera County Superintendent of Schools, the LPC submits to the California Department of Education the local priorities it has identified. The Priorities are identified in a manner that ensures that all child care needs in the county are met to the greatest extent possible.
Public input is highly encouraged in the development of the priorities.
