The Local Control Accountability Plan
(LCAP) is a three-year plan for school districts to describe planned goals, actions, services, and expenditures to support positive student outcomes that address state and local priorities. The LCAP details how school districts will use funding allocated as part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) to implement their respective plans.
The Local Control Funding Formula
(LCFF) was enacted in 2013-2014, creating sweeping changes in how California’s schools are governed and funded. It established a uniform base amount per student, with different amounts depending on grade level. School districts with greater populations of high-needs students receive additional funding support.
As a Basic Aid district – one of approximately 80 in California whose local property tax meets or exceeds its revenue limit - MVLA is not receiving any additional revenue. It is still required to develop an LCAP to show how the district is planning to address equity and justice issues and show how the district plans to close the achievement gap by providing additional funds to support improved student outcomes and accountability.
As a first step in the annual review of our LCAP, we meet with a variety of stakeholders - families, students, teachers, administrators, community members, and others – to review the LCAP and update goals and actions, soliciting feedback on a variety of questions:
- What are our expectations for students?
- What programs and services are achieving desired results, and which ones do not?
- What are our achievement goals, and what must we do to improve learning conditions, increase engagement, and improve school climate?
- What can we accomplish in three years, and how will we measure our progress?
- Based on available resources, what specific actions and activities will we implement to improve the achievement of underrepresented students?
Stakeholder feedback is then used to revise LCAP goals, actions, and services to align with changes need for the plan’s development and implementation while also adhering to a timeline
to meet required benchmarks.
In addition to local priorities, the LCAP must also address a list of eight state priorities
- Basic Conditions for Learning
- Implementation of State Standards
- Parental Involvement
- Student Achievement
- Student Engagement
- School Climate
- Course Access
- Other Student Outcomes
