Local Control and Accountability (LCAP)

LCAP Banner

The Monterey County Office of Education, Innovation, and Strategic Improvement Team, provides LCAP development and technical support for all LEAs through three tiers of support. 

LCAP Focus Sessions:  During these collaborative sessions, teams plan, reflect, and communicate their LCAP structures as a part of their continuous improvement efforts.  These sessions are universal support for LCAP development.

LCAP Strategy Sessions:  These technical sessions support LEA teams as they work on ensuring the template, instructions, and regulatory requirements are met. 

LCAP Personalized Sessions:  Individual sessions with LEAs allow for an in-depth review of systems that support increasing teaching, learning, and student outcomes, with a particular focus on English learners, low-income, and foster youth. 

The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is a major change to how California has supported local educational agencies. Through the LCFF, the state is providing new decision-making power to local educational agencies to act based on the needs they see for students. In addition, this shifts California from treating funding as an input to support students to a resource that is linked to performance expectations.

Complementing the changes to state funding made by the LCFF is a newly required Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP is LCFF’s vehicle for transparency and engagement. It is the way that LEAs are expected to share performance data, needs, actions, and anticipated outcomes that guide the use of available LCFF funding. The LCAP is a 3-year district plan that must be updated annually.

LEA Learning Continuity & Attendance Plans 2020-21

Senate Bill (SB) 98 established that the LCAP and an annual update to the LCAP are not required for the 2020–21 school year and that the California Department of Education (CDE) shall not publish the California School Dashboard in December 2020 based on performance data on the state and local indicators. SB98 supersedes the requirement to develop and adopt an LCAP by December 15, 2020, which was established by Executive Order N-56-20 published in April 2020.
