2020-2021 LCAP -Suspended by SB 98

The passing of Senate Bill (SB) 98, suspended the LCAP and Annual Update for the 2020-21 school year.  SB 98 superseded the requirement established by Executive Order N-56-20 to adopt an LCAP by December 15, 2020. It also separated the Budget Overview for Parents from the development and adoption process of the LCAP.  With respect to the budget, the legislation required that Local Education Agencies (LEAs), develop and adopt the 2020-21 LCAP Budget Overview for Parents by December 15, 2020.  In lieu of the LCAP, SB 98 establishes California EC Section 43509 and the Learning Continuity Plan (LCP) for the 2020–21 school year.  Read the NUSD Learning Continuity Plan page here.

Background Information

California uses the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) to determine how schools are funded. Districts determine how to spend funds to best meet students’ needs; involvement and input from teachers, staff, administrators, parents, students, and community members is required in making decisions about how funds are spent. The final plan for achieving goals and spending funds is the Local Control and Accountability Plan.

Stakeholder Engagement

There are many steps in the process to ensure that all stakeholders have an opportunity to provide input and review action items before the LCAP is implemented.

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 meet with various school site committees as well. The final plan must be approved by July 1st.
