What is the LCAP?
The Los Angeles Unified Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) articulates our District's vision to improve outcomes and opportunities for all students and to close equity gaps across our district.
As part of the state of California's Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) to report on the funds distributed through the LCFF. The LCAP is required to identify annual goals, specific actions geared toward implementing those goals, and must measure progress for student groups across multiple performance indicators based on eight priorities set by the State. The priorities must be aligned to the district’s spending plan to ensure alignment of projected spending toward goals and services. The LCAP must be approved before the annual district budget can be adopted. Once the budget and LCAP are adopted at the local level, the Plan is reviewed for approval by the County Superintendent.
