The LCAP was suspended for the 2020-2021 school year. Instead, all school districts were required to engage with stakeholders to develop a Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCP). This document includes a district’s response to addressing student needs during the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as plans for returning to school in-person, providing professional development for distance learning, and providing social and emotional support to students and staff. Finally, like the LCAP, the LCP highlights how districts are supporting students of low socio-economic levels, English-language learners, and foster youth. A Budget Overview for Parents has been created to show plan expenditures as it relates to the LCP (CCOE’s plan is compliant with the CDE template). The LCAP process explained below will resume with the 2021-2022 school year.
LCFF Accountability—The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)

As part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), school districts, county offices of education and charter schools are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), beginning on July 1, 2014, 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 and charter schools are required to obtain parent and public input in developing, revising and updating LCAPs.

The academic priorities must be aligned to the district’s spending plan. The local governing board must first approve the LCAP before adopting the annual district budget. County superintendents must review school district LCAPs and ensure alignment of projected spending, services, and goals. Charter school LCAPs will be reviewed by the chartering authority. COEs are required to provide technical assistance when they disapprove an LCAP. The State Superintendent of Public Instruction may intervene if a school district or charter school fails to show improvement across multiple subgroups in three out of four consecutive years.
