Local Control & Accountability Plan (LCAP)

The Local Control Funding Formula is a major change to how California has supported local educational agencies. Through the local control funding formula 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 Local Control Funding Formula is a newly required Local Control and Accountability Plan. 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.
