LCAP (Local Control Accountability Plan)

What are the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and Local Control Accountability Plans (LCAP)?

The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and its local accountability counterpart, the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) were implemented with the idea that California must a better job for its underperforming students, who in fact make up a sizable portion of the state’s school-age population. The LCFF changes the way funding is distributed to school districts with more money going to districts with higher numbers of students who qualify for free or reduced priced meals, are English learners, or foster youth. Click either of the following links to learn more about Union School District's LCFF funding.   
The LCAP describes how the district will spend the funds and its goals for improving student outcomes according to the LCFF (8) State Priorities set by the State of California. 
1. Basic Necessities
2. Implementation (CCSS) 
3. Parental Involvement  
4. Student Achievement 
5. Student Engagement 
6. School Climate 
7. Access to Courses 
8. Other student outcomes 
An important part of the process for creating the LCAP includes input from teachers, principals, school personnel, pupils, bargaining units, parents and with the advice of district-level parent advisory committees. Union School District Board annually adopts the LCAP in June before the plan is submitted to the state for final approval. 
The presentation below explains our review process, timeline, and stakeholder input. A copy of our current 2015-16 Board and State approved LCAP is available by clicking HERE.  Below this presentation is a link to our proposed LCAP for the 16-17 school year and a feedback form.
