Local Control Accountability Plan

In 2013, the state of California adopted a new formula for funding public education called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).  When fully implemented, the LCFF will allocate funds based on specific student needs and will allow maximum flexibility at a local level.

As part of the LCFF, school districts must develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year plan called the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).  The LCAP is to be written and developed with feedback and input from community stakeholder groups.  Staff, parents and students will be asked to provide input on eight different components of the LCAP.

Eight Priorities

A. Conditions of Learning: Basic: degree to which teachers are appropriately assigned pursuant to Education Code section 44258.9, and fully credentialed in the subject areas and for the pupils they are teaching; pupils have access to standards-aligned instructional materials pursuant to Education Code section 60119; and school facilities are maintained in good repair pursuant to Education Code section 17002(d). (Priority 1) Implementation of State Standards: implementation of academic content and performance standards and English language development standards adopted by the state board for all pupils, including English learners. (Priority 2) Course access: pupil enrollment in a broad course of study that includes all of the subject areas described in Education Code section 51210 and subdivisions (a) to (i), inclusive, of Section 51220, as applicable. (Priority 7) Expelled pupils (for county offices of education only): coordination of instruction of expelled pupils pursuant to Education Code section 48926.  (Priority 9) Foster youth (for county offices of education only): coordination of services, including working with the county child welfare agency to share information, responding to the needs of the juvenile court system, and ensuring transfer of health and education records.  (Priority 10)    

B. Pupil Outcomes: Pupil achievement: performance on standardized tests, score on Academic Performance Index, share of pupils that are college and career ready, share of English learners that become English proficient, English learner reclassification rate, share of pupils that pass Advanced Placement exams with 3 or higher, share of pupils determined prepared for college by the Early Assessment Program. (Priority 4) Other pupil outcomes: pupil outcomes in the subject areas described in Education Code section 51210 and subdivisions (a) to (i), inclusive, of Education Code section 51220, as applicable. (Priority 8)  

C. Engagement: Parental involvement: efforts to seek parent input in decision making at the district and each school site, promotion of parent participation in programs for unduplicated pupils and special need subgroups.  (Priority 3) Pupil engagement: school attendance rates, chronic absenteeism rates, middle school dropout rates, high school dropout rates, high school graduations rates. (Priority 5) School climate: pupil suspension rates, pupil expulsion rates, other local measures including surveys of pupils, parents and teachers on the sense of safety and school connectedness. (Priority 6) Essential Program Components (EPC)s in Reading Language Arts/English Language Development, mathematics and the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA).

Parent Advisory Committee Information

Parent representatives from each school meet with district personnel for the main purpose of giving input into the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).


Meetings are held about four times throughout the year.


The LCAP is the plan that holds the district goals, actions towards meetings those goals, and planned expenditures for Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) funds.


Parents share what is happening at their children’s school sites.  They offer suggestions and provide ideas that are taken to other educational partner groups and may become part of the LCAP.
