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 1st and then reviewed annually.

The following are the District’s PUSD LCAP by their respective school year:

2017-20 PUSD Local Control Accountability Plan

2016-17 PUSD Local Control Accountability Plan

2015-16 PUSD Local Control Accountability Plan

2014-15 PUSD Local Control Accountability Plan

 

LCAP Advisory Committee

The purpose of the LCAP Advisory Committee is to consult, review, and comment on the district’s Local Control Accountability Plan.

Each school district across the state is required to engage all stakeholders and adopt a strategic plan called a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).  The LCAP must describe how the District will meet annual goals for students that reflect both State requirements and local priorities.   You can review the 2016-17 LCAP by clicking here.

The LCAP Advisory Committee will meet regularly to review and provide input on sections of the LCAP being developed for the 2017-18 school year.   This year, the LCAP Advisory Committee Meetings are all open to the public, 3:45pm – 5:15pm in the PHS Student Center, on the following dates:

STATE REQUIREMENTS FOR LCAP CONTENT AND FORMAT

The LCAP must address the following:

Conditions of Learning

Conditions of Learning include student access to required courses, implementation of the Common Core standards, and fundamental conditions such as adequate facilities, materials and fully trained teachers.

  • Providing all students access to fully credentialed teachers, instructional materials that align with state standards, and safe facilities.
  • Implementation of California’s academic standards, including the Common Core State Standards in English language arts and math, Next Generation Science Standards, English language development, history social science, visual and performing arts, health education and physical education standards.
  • Ensuring all students have access to classes that prepare them for college and careers, regardless of what school they attend or where they live.

Pupil Outcomes

Pupil Outcomes include metrics of student achievement (for example, the Academic Performance Index), readiness for college and career, reclassification of English learners, and percentage of English learners who became proficient in English.

  • Improving student achievement and outcomes along multiple measures, including test scores, English proficiency and college and career preparedness.
  • Measuring other important student outcomes related to required areas of study, including physical education and the arts.

Engagement

Engagement includes parent involvement and pupil attendance, absenteeism, suspension, expulsion, and drop-out rates.

  • Parent involvement and participation, so the local community is engaged in the decision-making process and the educational programs of students.
  • Supporting student engagement, including whether students attend school or are chronically absent.
  • Highlighting school climate and connectedness through a variety of factors, such as suspension and expulsion rates and other locally identified means.

In addition to these mandated categories, each district may identify and incorporate goals related to local priorities. Nonetheless, the LCAP is designed to promote standardized, measurable goals to improve conditions for learning, student outcomes, and community engagement, in part so the State can allocate education funding to support progress for all school districts.
