Education beyond high school is becoming more and more necessary in order to make a wage that would support a family.  Yet, not all students graduate high school prepared to enter college or post secondary options.  In order to ensure all students are prepared for success in college and careers, regardless of ethnicity, gender, or socioeconomic status the US Department of Education, along with The Council of Chief State School Officers and The National Governors Association, embarked on a mission to implement the Common Core State Standards in all states. 
 
Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
When Governor Brown signed the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) into law, it changed the rules on how state money is allocated to school districts and how districts can spend those funds.  LCAP stands for a Local Control Accountability Plan, which each school district must write to explain its goals and strategies for improving achievement for all students. The plan details how these funds will be used to increase and improve services for students.
