Local Control and Accountability Plan - What is an LCAP?
The Local Control and Accountability Plan or LCAP is a critical part of California’s new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). It is a three-year, district-level plan that is updated annually. The plan describes the school district’s key goals for students as well as the specific actions (with expenditures) the district will take to achieve the goals and the means (metrics) used to measure progress.
The LCAP addresses the needs of all students, including specific student groups, and all districts must specifically address English learners, foster youth, and low-income students. In addition, the LCAP must address the state of California's eight priority areas that include student academic achievement, school climate, student access to a broad curriculum, and parent engagement. School districts may identify their own local priorities to meet the needs of the students they serve. The district spending plan aligns to these academic priorities.
Interested in giving your input for this year's LCAP, please join us at the MEUSD District Office on March 26th at 5:30 p.m. See the flyer below for more information.
