Background and Information:

The Learning Continuity Plan (LCP) is a key component of the overall district budget.  It is a means to seeking and addressing fiscal stability for schools while also providing information information at the district level on how it will continue to and address student learning continuity during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis and through the 2020-21 school year.  The LCP provisions were approved by the Governor Newsom on June 29, 2020 with the passing of Senate Bill (SB) 98 which can be found in EC Section 43509.

The intent of the LCP is to balance the needs of students, parents, educators, and community members, while streamlining preexisting engagement activities and combining district plan.  For example, it was important to combine the requirements of  (1) Executive Order N-56-20 which was adopted Spring of 2020 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, suspended the 3-year Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) cycle and extended a one year plan due date to December 15th, and (2) Formal plan to safely reopen and start schools under the uncertainty around the pandemic.  It was important to support LEAs during these difficult times and not required two separate plans.  Therefore, the Learning Continuity Plan is replacing the LCAP for the 2020–21 school year.

The Learning Continuity Plan is to be adopted by September 30, 2020.  The intent of the plan is to be completed by the beginning of the school year in order to ensure proper and timely implementation of the actions and services identified in the plan.  In addition, it provides a guide for how instruction and learning will take place and be measured during the 2020-21 school year.  The LCP template accommodates the efforts and activities LEAs already have in effect for the upcoming school year.  In addition, it addresses the following areas of concern caused by the pandemic and school closure:  continuity of learning; learning loss, stakeholder engagement, transparency, addressing the needs of unduplicated students and students with special needs, technology access and connectivity; mental health and social and emotional well-being, and providing school meals for students.
