Beginning July 1, 2013, the State of California changed the funding formula for public education and requires school districts to develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP is a plan that aligns the District’s educational goals with financial resources. The LCAP is a critical part of the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). Under the LCFF all Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) are required to prepare an LCAP, which describes how they intend to meet annual goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities identified pursuant to Education Code Section 52060(d).
California school districts must engage parents, educators, employees, and the community to establish these plans. The plans will describe the school district’s overall vision for students, annual goals and specific actions that will be taken to achieve the vision and goals. The LCAPs must focus on eight areas identified as state priorities. The plans will also demonstrate how the district’s budget will help achieve the goals, and assess each year how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes.
