Local Control Accountability Plan

  • As part of the Local Control Funding Formula school districts in California are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) using a template adopted by the California State Board of Education (SBE).

    The LCAP is required to identify annual goals, specific actions, and measure progress for student subgroups across multiple performance indicators, including student academic achievement, school climate, student access to a broad curriculum, and parent engagement. School districts are required to obtain parent and public input when developing, revising and updating LCAPs.

    Academic priorities must be aligned to the district’s spending plan. The local governing board must approve the LCAP and adopt the district budget annually. County superintendents review school district LCAPs to ensure alignment of projected spending, actions, services, and goals. The State Superintendent of Public Instruction may intervene if a school district fails to show improvement across multiple subgroups in three out of four consecutive years.

    CVUSD has developed an LCAP which aligns the academic plan with district expenditures. Parents, teachers, classified employees, community members and administrators participated in the development of the LCAP.
