Background on LCAP/LCFF

In 2013, California adopted a new formula for determining how much money each school district will receive called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).  California state law sets out the system for funding public schools. State leaders largely decide how much money is available to schools each year as part of the state budget process. 

School Boards decide how to use the funds, but under the new system they must get input from their local communities. They also have to tie their budgets to improvement goals by creating a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).  The plan is a three-year plan that must be updated each year. It must include both goals for the school district and for each numerically significant subgroup (30 or more students for all subgroups except foster youth which is 15 or more). The plans must specify the actions a school district will take to achieve these goals and must be aligned with the district’s annual budget.

School districts are also required to solicit input from employees, bargaining units, parents, students and community members in crafting the LCAP. In addition, the LCAP must include annual goals in eight areas in three categories:

Conditions of Learning

  • Teachers are appropriately assigned and fully credentialed; students have access to standards-aligned instructional materials; and school facilities are maintained and in good repair
  • Implementation of State Board Education adopted academic content standards
  • Student enrollment in a broad course of study including all subject areas

Pupil Outcomes

  • Pupil achievement including standardized tests, college and career readiness, English learner proficiency and reclassification, Advanced Placement exams, and Early Assessment Program
  • Other student outcomes in all subject areas

Engagement

  • Parent involvement, input in decision making and participation in programs for unduplicated pupils and students with special needs
  • Pupil engagement, attendance, chronic absenteeism, dropout and graduation rates
  • School climate, suspension and expulsion rates, safety and school connectedness
Annual Update

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District continues to do significant work to engage stakeholders each year in the annual LCAP update process.  This work includes an includes overview of the Local Control Funding Formula, the LCAP and district data.   

Working together with the LCAP Committee, comprised of parents, students, staff, and community members, the draft update to the three-year plan is created describing the District’s goals, actions, services and expenditures that support student growth based on the input received.  The draft LCAP update is shared throughout with community at several meetings held during the school year.  

A public hearing is held in June and the annual LCAP will be adopted along with the district's annual budget no later than July 1, each year.


New Information as of April, 2020| Executive Order N-56-20

Executive Order N-56-50 extended the deadline for the annual update to December 15, 2020 on the condition that the school districts publish a "COVID-19 Operations Written Report" detailing how the district responded to COVID-19, including steps taken to deliver distance learning and meet the needs of disadvantaged students.

New Information as of June, 2020| SB98

Senate Bill 98 established that the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) and an annual update to the LCAP are not required for the 2020–21 school year. Additionally, it established the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (Learning Continuity Plan) and its requirements for the 2020–21 school year. 

The Learning Continuity Plan is intended to balance the needs of all stakeholders, including educators, parents, students and community members, while both streamlining engagement and condensing several preexisting plans.
