SCUSD will hold a third public forum to discuss creation of a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) — a state requirement tied to new funding rules — on January 22 at the Serna Center.

During the 2014-15 budget cycle, SCUSD — like all public K-12 districts — is required to create a plan that shows how spending is aligned to the state’s eight priorities for public education and what measurements SCUSD will use to hold itself accountable for addressing those priorities.

The LCAP requirement is part of the state’s shift toward giving school districts more flexibility with state funds and ensuring broad community input into how available funds are spent. It is in tandem with the Local Control Funding Formula signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown last July.

The state’s eight priorities are:

• Basic Services

• Implementation of Common Core State Standards

• Course Access

• Parental Involvement

• School Climate

• Student Achievement

• Student Engagement

• Other Student Outcomes
