Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
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.
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.
1. Attend a School Site Council or English Learner Parent Advisory. Ask to be a representative on the LCAP PAC (Parent Advisory Committee). Check your school's calendar for a list of dates.
2. Take the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) and make sure you child takes theirs too. Links are available through your school newsletters.
3. If you cannot attend one of our site-based LCAP meetings, please submit your feedback at the following link.
4. Review and provide feedback on our LCAP draft after the public hearing in June .
