Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)

Image representing the California CapitolCalifornia's Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) was hailed as a historic and bold step when it was signed into law in 2013. The law created a new way of financing schools and was intended to provide both more local control over the use of funding and more equity.

Local school districts were given the flexibility to determine how best to meet student needs and were entrusted with the responsibility to focus on increasing or improving services to three target populations that have historically been underserved and in need of additional resources: low-income students, English Learners, and foster youth. The new funding formula allocated supplemental and concentration grants for these three populations.

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. Below is a list of eight priorities established by the state of California.

 State Priorities
 1. Student Achievement
 2. Student Engagement
 3. Parent Involvement
 4. School Climate

 5. Common Core State Standards
 6. Course Access
 7. Basic Services
 8. Other Student Outcomes

Community Forums and Advisory Committee Meetings help strengthen the Accountability Plan. Conversations about the LCAP necessarily revolve around resource allocation and fundamentally target students' classroom learning opportunities - particularly those of English Learners, students of poverty, and foster youth.

All students should benefit from a school district’s LCAP. School districts who receive additional funds to enhance services for low-income students, English Learners and foster youth should explain how their plan is meeting the needs of these target groups.

  1. Improve & Increase Access to Services that Support Social, Emotional, Physical Wellness and School Success
  2. Ensure Students Engage in Relevant, Personalized Learning Experiences
  3. Increase Parent Engagement
  4. Recruit & Retain the Highest Caliber Employees
  5. Students of all Grades & all Target Groups Will Demonstrate Increased Proficiency

CVESD made an unprecedented $15 million investment in arts instruction, spread over three years. This also provides classroom teachers with release time for collaboration. The funding for collaboration while boosting arts instruction was hailed by classroom teachers and arts supporters alike as a 'win-win.' The funding was embedded in the District's LCAP.
