LCAP 2015-16 Draft

Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

Last year, the 2013-2014 Budget Act replaced the previous K-12 finance system with the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).   Under the new system, districts receive a uniform base grant, plus additional supplemental funds for students with greater educational needs, defined as low-income, English learner, and foster youth students. 

As part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), school districts are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). The plan must include information about the district’s goals for students according to the priorities set by the state.  The LCAP identifies the following eight priorities: Student Achievement, Student Engagement, Other Student Outcomes, School Climate, Parental Involvement, Basic Services, Implementation of Common Core State Standards, and Course Access.

The development of the LCAP is guided by specific requirements.  The actions and expenditures must reflect details related to the goal for the specific subgroups of students designated in the Education Code, including low income pupils, English Learners (EL), foster youth, and pupils with disabilities.  Based on the state formula, the supplemental funding for our district remains quite small.  We received $110,978 in 2014-2015.  We are expecting supplemental grants in the amount of $119,108 for 2015-2016 and $103,289 in 2016-2017.  These supplemental grant allocations fund the EL teachers who provide the instructional program for our English Learners.   

Because LCAP is designed to be a multi-year plan, we are able to address what can be accomplished over a three year time frame.  We are moving forward with required next steps by reviewing the 2014-2015 LCAP, writing the Annual Update, and drafting any revisions for the new 2015-2016 three year LCAP.   After attending workshops about LCAP, we began sharing information and consulting with various stakeholder groups.  The draft LCAP is now posted on the district website.  We welcome your input and feedback.  Please feel free to contact Wendy Patterson at wpatters@lafsd.k12.ca.us.  The LCAP will be presented to the Governing Board for approval in June and then submitted to the Contra Costa County Office of Education for final approval.
