ABOUT THE LOCAL CONTROL ACCOUNTABILITY PLAN (LCAP)
In 2013, the state of California adopted a new formula for funding public education called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). When fully implemented, the LCFF will allocate funds based on specific student needs and will allow maximum flexibility at a local level.
As part of the LCFF, school districts must develop, adopt and annually update a three-year plan called the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). This plan will describe the school district’s overall vision for learning and establish goals for all students and specific subgroups for each of eight state educational priorities. Districts must also delineate specific actions and strategies that will be used to achieve these goals.
As part of the process for developing the LCAP, districts must consult with all stakeholders including teachers, principals, school personnel, students, bargaining units, parents, and community members. The state has clearly established the importance of stakeholder input in creating and evaluating the LCAP.
The Eight State Priorities:
1. Basic Services, including facilities, qualified teachers, and instructional materials
2. Implementation of Academic Standards, including a focus on English Learners
3. Course Access
4. Student Achievement
5. Other Student Outcomes
6. Parent Involvement
7. Student Engagement
8. School Climate
