LCAP Page Web BannerThought Exchange Begins February 5th

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 are 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

Image representing a documentThe development of the LCAP is dependent on input of stakeholders including staff, employee representative groups, and community organizations. Community Forums and Advisory Committee Meetings help strengthen the Accountability Plan. Conversations about the Local Control Accountability Plan (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 Local Control and Accountability Plan (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.

Imagine being a child removed from birth parents and/or separated from siblings. Imagine keeping up academically, socially, and emotionally while transitioning to a new school, and foster parents. Then, repeating the experience. CVESD's LCAP-funded social workers support our neediest students: foster youth. Social workers provide direct services to foster youth in individual, small group, or whole classroom settings.
