Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)
Each year, districts are required to develop an LCAP that explains the district's:
- Prior year progress toward its goals.
- Goals and actions planned for the coming three years.
- Processes used to engage parents, students, staff, and the community in the development of the plan.
The first year of the three-year LCAP is a time to set goals, actions and desired outcomes that will span the three years. Throughout each year, program monitoring and evaluation and analysis of student data takes place through a cycle of inquiry. In each subsequent year, an annual update is reported to the California Department of Education and based on the annual update, adjustments can be made to the plan actions and expenditures.

Parents, community members, and staff provided input on the 2021-2024 DRAFT LCAP for the 2021-22 school year through a district-wide survey. An overview of the LCAP was also presented to the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) and District Advisory Committee (DAC), and to the school board during the May 11, 2021 Board Study Session. The DRAFT plan will be posted here for public comment from May 14th through June 16th. The superintendent is required to provide comment to any questions that are posed by the DAC and DELAC. The 2021-22 Goals, Actions and Metrics will guide and focus all staff on improving student achievement for our high need students. There is strong alignment between the LCAP and the district's Vision 2035 and 2021-25 strategic plan that is under development.
What is the purpose and relationship between the LCAP and Vision 2035 and Strategic Plan?
While the Vision 2035 and the Strategic Plan articulate the overarching vision, goals, and actions for the district as a whole, the LCAP is a focused look at what we will provide over and above our core program to students whose needs go beyond the core. The LCAP itself is a lengthy document with 3 years of information and an annual update included. If you are interested in focusing on the proposed goals and actions for the upcoming year, the 2021-22 Goals and Actions document will provide that. You can also view our glossary of terms for more information.
Information about the LCAP will be updated regularly on our website. Make sure to check back here for new information.
