PUSD Local Control Accountability Plan 2014-15

Saturday, November 29th, 2014 - Posted in All District News

Following last year’s passage of Proposition 30, the State developed a new formula for allocating money to school districts. Starting in the 2014/15 school year, this new formula will stabilize education funding and reverse the cuts to education that started in 2008.

The new 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 2014 and then reviewed annually.   The District’s LCAP must conform to specific content and format requirements mandated by the State and the Alameda County Office of Education (ACOE).

Prior to the adoption of Prop 30 and the LCAP requirement, PUSD had developed and updated an Action Plan that reflects the District’s goals for continuous improvement. As previously reported, District staff planned to adapt the Action Plan into the new LCAP, so that there would be one document that reflects both State priorities and local goals for improving education.

After consultation with ACOE, the District concluded that the goals stated in the Action Plan are not readily adaptable to the LCAP format. For this reason, the District will continue to maintain and update its Action Plan as well as the LCAP. As explained below, the LCAP will reflect State mandates such as student access to fully credentialed teachers and required courses. Although this is a significant issue for many districts, PUSD is already at full compliance. In contrast, the Action Plan will reflect local objectives such as the themes that emerged from Shaping our Future and other staff and community engagement.
