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.
Education Code Section 52062(b)(1) requires that the Board of Trustees conduct a Public Hearing on the District Local Accountability Plan. A public hearing was held on June 16, 2014, at the Board of Trustees’ regular board meeting.
It was moved, seconded, and carried by unanimous vote (5 - 0) to adopt the District Local Control Accountability Plan as submitted at the June 25, 2014, Board of Trustees regular board meeting.
