Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)

The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is an important component of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). Under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) all districts are required to prepare a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), which describes how they intend to meet annual goals for all students, with specific activities to address state and local priorities identified pursuant to Education Code Section 52060(d).

Education Code sections 52060 and 52066 specify that the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) must include a description of the annual goals to be achieved for each student group for each state priority. Goals must address each of the state priorities and any additional local priorities; however, one goal may address multiple priorities. A district may identify which school sites and subgroups have the same goals, and group and describe those goals together. If a single goal requires longer than one year to implement fully, the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) should reflect the annual incremental actions, services, and expenditures, as well as the annual anticipated progress, that the district expects to achieve for each student group. These annual benchmarks will assist districts and the community to monitor the progress of the plan.
