What is the Local Control and 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 plans must be approved by July 1.
