LCAP Process Underway In California School Districts

School districts are currently working on the development of its Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). Under the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), districts have much more discretion in how they spend their funding. However, they must develop a detailed plan to show how the money will be used to improve achievement and to meet the needs of low-income students, English learners and foster children. Districts must collect input and suggestions from parents, students, staff and community members. Please see the attached Local Control Accountability Plan Report for more information.
