What is the LCAP?

As required by Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) Education Codes 42103, 42127, and 52062, all school districts must develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP is a three-year plan that describes the goals, actions, services, and expenditures to support positive student outcomes that address state and local priorities. The LCAP provides an opportunity for local educational agencies (LEAs) to share their stories of how, what, and why programs and services are selected to meet their local needs. The components of the LCAP for the 2022–2023 LCAP year must be posted as one document assembled in the following order:

  • LCFF Budget Overview for Parents

  • Supplement to the Annual Update to the 2021–22 LCAP

  • Plan Summary

  • Engaging Educational Partners

  • Goals and Actions

  • Increased or Improved Services for Foster Youth, English Learners, and Low-income students

  • Action Tables

  • Instructions

 The LCAP must be updated every year, be aligned to eight areas identified above, and describe  the school district's overall vision for students, annual goals and specific actions the district will take to achieve the vision and achievement targets.  In addition, the LCAP describes how the district's budget will help achieve the goals, and how the district will assess each year how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes.
