Apply for the LCAP Parent Advisory Committee

e-Connections Post

California has changed the way it funds school districts. The new model, called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), allows districts more freedom in how funds are spent but also requires the development of a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) that aligns spending to specific district goals for student achievement.

One key aspect of the LCAP process is the engagement of parents/guardians and students — including homeless youth, foster youth and those from low-income and English learner communities — in providing input and feedback.

Annually, SCUSD will form an LCAP Parent Advisory Committee to review and provide input on sections of the LCAP. SCUSD has a strong record of parent/guardian engagement in district-level planning and is excited to partner with this group in shaping the district’s vision and actions for the coming years.

Community members (parents, staff, community partners) are encouraged to submit an application for the LCAP Parent Advisory Committee.This committee is charged with reviewing and commenting on the district’s plan, which connects resources to goals for students.

The application may be found online at, or a paper copy may be found at the reception desk of the Serna Center (5735 47th Ave.). Applications for the LCAP PAC are due at 5 p.m. on September 30.

For parents of, or staff who work with, English learners, an English Learner LCAP Parent Advisory Committee (EL LCAP PAC) is being formed as well. The application for this committee will also be available online, with a deadline of November 12, as this committee will be a subcommittee of the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC).
