Local Control Accountability Plan

Local Control Accountability Plan

 

In 2013-2014 the California legislature enacted a new school funding law called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). The LCFF made important changes in the way California schools are funded.  The LCFF also changed the way  school districts and schools make decisions about how to spend education funds.

The LCFF

  • Requires school districts to involve parents in planning and decision making
  • Shifts spending decisions from the state to the local school district
  • Requires school districts to focus on the eight key areas that help all students succeed
  • Provides extra funding for students with greater challenges
  • Gives school districts more flexibility for how to spend money to improve local schools
  • Requires the district, along with input from parents, students, and other stakeholder groups, to develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) each year that defines how education funds will be spent

This year, with input from parents, students, and other stakeholder groups, the district will review/analyze LCAP and make revisions for 2020-2021 and beyond.

The public is welcome to submit written comments regarding the specific actions and expenditures proposed in the plan by using the “Contact Us” link located on the top of the web page.

See below to view the  LCAP and the LCAP Summary.


Parent Advisory Committee

The district has established a Parent Advisory Committee (PAC).  The PAC will meet four times during the school year.  All parents and community members are invited to attend the PAC meetings.  The  superintendent, director of categorical programs, and/or director of curriculum will host these meetings.  The purpose of the PAC is to engage parents in the LCAP planning process, to elicit their input into the district’s LCAP, and to provide them with the opportunity to voice priorities for their students. Spanish translation will be available at each of the meetings. Information regarding the state priorities, the purposes of the funding including the supplemental and concentration funds, along with drafts of the LCAP will be presented to parents.

Student Focus Groups

Each year a focus group gives students the opportunity to have their voices heard in relation to the LCAP.  Students representing Hamilton, Lincoln, Lee Richmond, Washington, Simas ,King, Monroe, and Roosevelt schools attend the session.  In preparation for the focus group, the elementary student representatives obtain input on a series of survey questions, representing the eight state priorities, from their classmates at the elementary schools.  Prepared with information obtained from their classmates, the elementary students are transported to the junior high school session. Working together with junior high student leadership, groups of students further discuss the survey questions and provide feedback on programs and services in the LCAP.
