The LCAP is a three-year, district-level plan that describes the district’s key goals for students as well as the actions the district will take to achieve the goals and the means by which it will measure progress.
Every three years, our school district creates its “Local Control and Accountability Plan” to address:
- District- and school-wide goals plus actions to achieve the goals for all students and progress toward meeting the goals
- Expenditures required to implement each goal
- The stakeholder engagement process used to involve parents, students, staff and other community members in developing, reviewing, and supporting the LCAP.
Districts must update these plans annually by submitting information through a California Department of Education template, which relates each goal to a state priority. Progress against the state-measured goals are also reported in a tool called the School Dashboard.
