Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

The State of California has changed the way it funds schools. Districts, such as East Side Union High School District, are required to gather input from students, teachers, parents and community members to determine the goals, actions and budget priorities for the district.  


The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a three-year plan that is to be reviewed every year. 


Dates of the LCAP meetings are listed below.  These meetings are an opportunity to review the LCAP and provide input as to how the District can better serve its students toward college and career success.

Local Control and Accountability Plan Survey
Your Input Matters

The State of California changed the way it provides resources to schools.  Districts and schools have more local control over the money they receive and are required to create a clear Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) to show how they are using these resources.


The East Side Union High School District seeks to gather input from students, teachers, parents, and community members to determine the goals, actions, and budget priorities for the District.  


Thanks to all of you who attended an LCAP meeting at your school site during February and March of this year.  More than 1,300 people participated across our schools.   


Whether you attended a meeting or not, we invite you to complete the LCAP survey (link below).  Your input in adopting this year’s plan is vital if we are to better support all students toward college and career success.


Thank you for your thoughtful input.

El estado de California cambio la forma en cómo se distribuyen los recursos a las escuelas.  Los distritos y las escuelas tienen mayor control local sobre el dinero que reciben y tienen que crear un plan claro para el Programa de Control y Responsabilidad local  (LCAP) para mostrar cómo están utilizando estos recursos. 

El distrito escolar de East Side busca obtener información de los estudiantes, maestros, padres y miembros de la comunidad para determinar las metas, acciones y prioridades presupuestarias para el distrito.

Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

What are LCFF and LCAP?

When Governor Brown signed the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) into law on July 1, it changed the rules on how state money is allocated to school districts and how districts can spend those funds. The State Board of Education is now working to create templates that will guide districts in using state resources. In addition, each school district must now prepare a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) to describe how they will meet state goals for all students.

The State requires that all California school districts engage parents, educators, employees, and the community to establish these plans. In these plans, districts will describe their overall vision for students, outline their annual goals and enumerate the specific actions they will take to achieve their goals. Part of this includes a financial accounting for the use of the budget as well annual assessments that measure how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve student outcomes.


How will State funds be allocated to districts?

Funding will go to districts rather than individual schools. Most of the funds will consist of a base grant that districts will receive for every student in attendance. The base grants are higher for younger elementary school students and highest for high school students.  The base grants will be adjusted upward each year to reflect cost-of-living increases. Districts will also receive a supplemental grant based on the number of high-needs students enrolled in the district with more than 55% high-needs students will get even more funds through what are called concentration grants.

The new law effectively eliminates over 40 “categorical” programs—dedicated funding for everything from summer school and school counselors to building maintenance and principal training—that for decades were intended to serve specific needs. Instead, the categorical funds will be folded into the grant districts will get. Districts will have the option to provide the services funded by categorical funds, but they won’t be required to do so.

What does the State require to be included in these plans?
School districts and schools are responsible for developing goals and actions in eight priority areas defined by the state, these are:

  1. Williams Act – Providing credentialed teachers, instructional materials that align with state standards, and safe facilities for all students
  2. Academic Content and Performance Standards – Implementing California’s Common Core State Standards
  3. Parental Involvement – Involving parents in their student’s educational programs and in the decision-making process of the district
  4. Pupil Achievement — Improving student outcomes and increasing college and career readiness
  5. Pupil Engagement — Supporting students in consistent school attendance
  6. School Climate – Nurturing students in a healthy school environment where they feel safe
  7. Access and enrollment — Ensuring access for all students to classes that prepare them for the future
  8. Pupil Outcomes – Measuring student progress and outcomes to guide the teaching process

A district may also identify goals related to its own local priorities, and incorporate them into the LCAP.


Community Engagement

Community engagement includes community conversations and focus group discussions, soliciting feedback from parents, students, teachers, administrators and community members to develop goals and outcomes regarding the District’s Strategic Plan.
