2020 Operations Written Report

Due to Covid-19 and the resulting closures of our schools in March 2020, the State of California modified the normal LCAP process and instead required school districts to submit an "Operations Written Report," which provides the community with a brief overview of the Simi Valley Unified School District during the pandemic. That report can be found HERE

Also note that the goals of the LCAP, as informed by community feedback and identified by the PAC, ELPAC and DAC committees, are as follows:

Summary of SVUSD 2019-2020 LCAP Goals

Goal 1: Secondary schools will provide a comprehensive program to prepare students for college and career.

Goal 2: SVUSD will fully implement the California State Standards (CSS). Teachers will be fully trained and provided with aligned materials; technology integration will also be a focus.

Goal 3: SVUSD will provide comprehensive programs to improve student performance and address students who are not meeting grade-level standards. California State Standards-aligned (CSS) district benchmarks will be established and implemented. A comprehensive Response to Intervention (RtI) program will be initiated and subgroups will be addressed.

Goal 4: Parents will be active partners with the school district and school sites. The focus will be to augment parent opportunities for involvement; improve the communication between school and home; and improve parent digital access. Specific attention will be given to EL parents.

Goal 5: SVUSD will provide a safe and engaging environment for students. The areas of focus will be to address bullying and to implement a digital citizenship curriculum, as well as to improve student connectedness to school. Facilities maintenance will also be a focus.

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
