Local Control and Accountability Plan

LCAP Overview

Every three years, school districts are required by the state of California to develop a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) that explains the district's: 

  • Goals and actions planned for the coming three years.

  • Measures of progress toward meeting the goals.

  • Processes used to engage parents, students, staff, and the community in the development of the plan.

Since spring 2024, we have been busy creating the goals, actions, and three year outcomes that comprise our new LCAP. We have been doing this with the input of families/caregivers, community members, students, certificated and classified staff members, and administrators. This input has been happening through committee meetings, focus groups, and the LCAP Input Survey that was sent to students, staff and community members from December 20, 2023 to January 21, 2024. More timeline information on the development of the LCAP is below.

The goals, actions, and metrics will guide and focus all staff on improving student achievement for our high-need students. There is a strong alignment between the LCAP, School Single Plans for Student Achievement (SPSAs) and the district's vision and priority initiatives. Each year, program monitoring and analysis of student data takes place, and an annual update is developed and reported to the California Department of Education that describes any adjustments to be made to the LCAP’s actions and expenditures.
