Local Control Accountability Plan and Annual Update for 2019-2020 available now

As part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), school districts, County Offices of Education, and charter schools are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) beginning on July 1, 2014, using a template that was adopted by the California State Board of Education (SBE) in January 2014. In addition, the SBE is required to adopt evaluation rubrics to assist Local Education Agencies and oversight entities in evaluating strengths, weaknesses, areas that require improvement, technical assistance needs, and where interventions are warranted on or before October 1, 2015. 

The LCAP is required to identify goals and measure progress for student subgroups across eight state priority areas. Districts must include in their LCAP (1) actions, services and expenditures for all students and subgroups and (2) additional actions and services for “unduplicated pupils” including low-income students, English learners, foster youth and redesignated English learners. The superintendent must review the Single Plan for Student Achievement from school sites to ensure the actions in the LCAP are consistent with strategies in school plans submitted pursuant to Education Code Section 64001.
