Please review our FAQ Section.  If we have not answered your question or you would like additional clarification, please email our Superintendent Dr. Dave Marken at LCAP@newarkunified.org.

The Newark Unified School District’s LCAP Committee is in the process of developing the first draft of the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).

Ultimately, the plan must be reviewed by the stakeholders across the district. Because we are a district that has 15 percent or more English learners, a separate parent committee must provide feedback in this area. District representatives will meet with various school site committees. The final plans must be approved by July 1.


LCAP Input Meetings

The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) Input Meetings are exciting opportunities for you and your school communities to engage with the District and share your ideas for how Newark Unified can provide quality opportunities and supports for Newark youth and schools. By 2021, when the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is fully implemented, NUSD will have significant increases in per student allocations! Your participation and feedback will inform the District’s LCAP’s funding priorities over the next several years.
