What is the LCAP?
Each District and Charter School in the State of California is required to develop and annually update the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) following a process of stakeholder engagement, needs assessment, goal setting, and progress monitoring. The resources supporting the plan come from the State of California and its Local Control Funding Formula for public schools that accounts for approximately 88% of the District's annual funding.
Each District and Charter School is required to convene a LCAP Parent Advisory Committee, annually, in order to provide opportunity for parents to participate with District administrators, teachers, and support staff in the development and evaluation of the LCAP.
The Learning Continuity Plan replaces the LCAP for the 2020–21 school year. The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan is a key part of the overall budget package for K-12 that seeks to address funding stability for schools while providing information at the local educational agency (LEA) level for how student learning continuity will be addressed during the COVID-19 crisis in the 2020–21 school year. The provisions for the plan were approved by the Governor and Legislature in June in SB 98 and can be found in EC Section 43509.
