Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

LCCF and LCAP Information

What is the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)?

California’s 2013-14 Budget Act included landmark legislation that greatly simplifies the state’s school finance system. The changes introduced by the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) represent a major shift in how California funds Local Educational Agencies (LEAs). For nearly 40 years, California has relied on a system that included general purpose funding (known as revenue limits) and more than 50 tightly defined categorical programs to provide state funding to LEAs. Under LCFF, California funds school districts, charter schools, and county offices of education equally per student with adjustments based on grade levels and demographic characteristics. LCFF replaces complexity in favor of equity, transparency, and performance.

What is the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)?

The LCAP is an important component of the LCFF. Under the LCFF all LEAs are required to prepare an LCAP, which describes how they intend to meet annual goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities identified pursuant to EC Section 52060(d).

 
IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING 2020-2021 LCAP:
Given the uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact California’s response has had on a local educational agency’s (LEA’s) ability to meaningfully engage with stakeholders, Executive Order N-56-20 was established. This Executive Order extended the deadline for adoption of the 2020–21 LCAP from July 1, 2020, to December 15, 2020. For more information please visit the CA Department of Education Website.
