PUSD Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
Following the passage of Proposition 30, the State developed a new formula for allocating money to school districts. Starting in the 2014/15 school year, this formula serves to stabilize education funding and reverse the cuts to education that started in 2008.
The funding rules require each school district to adopt a plan, called a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), for education spending. The LCAP must describe how the District will meet annual goals for students that reflect both State requirements and local priorities. The LCAP must be developed by July 2016 and then reviewed annually.
The District’s LCAP must also conform to specific content and format requirements mandated by the State and the Alameda County Office of Education (ACOE). These 27 mandated metrics must be addressed as part of the District’s LCAP.
