LCAP/LCFF/LCP

On June 29, 2020, Governor Newsom signed Senate Bill 98 (SB 98) into law. SB 98  mandates the creation of a Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCP) in lieu of the 2020-21 Local Control Accountability Plan which was originally required by the Governor’s Executive Order N-56-20 in April 2020.

The Learning Continuity Plan (LCP)

The LCP is intended to balance the needs of all stakeholders, including educators, parents, students and community members and the ongoing need for Districts to formally plan to return to school in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic  without requiring two plans (an LCAP and LCP).

Included in the LCP

The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan template memorializes the planning process already underway for the 2020–21 school year and includes descriptions of the following: 

* How District's conducted meaningful stakeholder engagement
* The plan for in-person instruction
* The plan for Distance Learning
* How the District is providing access to necessary devices and connectivity for distance learning
* How the District is monitoring Pupil Participation and Progress
* The plan for Professional Development and description of any new positions added to support efforts to return to school
* How the District is addressing the needs of unduplicated pupils, students with unique needs, and students experiencing homelessness
* How the District is measuring and addressing pupil learning loss
* How the District is providing resources and supports to address student and staff mental health and social emotional well-being 
* How the District will continue to provide school meals for students
* How the District is Increasing or Improving services for Foster Youth, English Learners, and Low-Income Students

In past years: Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

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 Accountability Plan (LCAP) beginning on July 1, 2014. 

This LCAP describes how the district will spend the funds and its goals for improving student outcomes according to eight priorities set by the state:

  • Student achievement
  • Student engagement
  • School climate
  • Basic services
  • Implementation of Common Core Standards
  • Access to courses
  • Parental involvement
  • Other student outcomes
To view past years' LCAPs, click on the year in the menu.


Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)

Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law a new formula for how California schools are to be funded. This law, the most significant change to school district funding in the past 40 years, makes fundamental changes in how State revenues are allocated to schools. At its core is the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). This law requires parents, students, teachers, and community be involved in the process of deciding how new funds are spent.

The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF):

  • Allows for local control and decision making

  • Provides additional resources for students with the greatest needs (for example, English Language Learners, Foster Youth and socio-economically disadvantaged students)

  • Aligns District goals and actions with the budget and expenditures

8priorities

Local Control Accountability Plan Components and Development 

The LCAP will include annual goals for all students as well as numerically significant student subgroups such as English Language Learners, Economically Disadvantaged Students, Students with Disabilities, and students reclassified to Fluent English Proficient. The LCAP will outline specific actions by the District and schools and describe expenditures.

The LCAP will be developed with input from teachers, administrators, other personnel, students, parents and local bargaining units.

A completed draft of the LCAP will be:

  • Presented to the District Advisory Committee (DAC) and the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC)
  • Posted with the opportunity for the community to submit written comments
  • Presented to the Board of Trustees at a public hearing and adopted prior to the District’s budget no later than July 1, 2015
  • Submitted to the Santa Clara County Office of Education
