The Local Control and Accountability Plan or LCAP is a critical part of California’s Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). It is a three-year, district-level plan that is updated annually. The plan describes the school district’s key goals for students as well as the specific actions the district will take to achieve the goal, along with defining the metrics that will be used to measure progress.
The LCAP addresses the needs of all students, including specific student groups, and all districts must specifically address English learners, foster youth, and low-income students. In addition, the LCAP must address the state of California's eight priority areas which include student academic achievement, school climate, student access to a broad curriculum, and parent engagement. The district's spending plan aligns to these academic priorities.
