Survey, LCAP Advisory Committee applications now available

e-Connections Post

SCUSD is gearing up efforts to gather community feedback for use in development of the 2015-16 Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).

Parents, students and staff can provide input on district goals and priorities by completing the LCAP Survey. A link to the survey can be found at www.scusd.edu/lcap

SCUSD is also forming an LCAP Advisory Committee to review and provide input on sections of the LCAP. The LCAP Advisory Committee application is online and available for download. 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.

The LCAP is required by the state as part of California’s school funding reform initiative. In 2013-14, Governor Brown signed into law the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), which gives K-12 districts more discretion in using state resources in exchange for more accountability and more community engagement in the budget process.

The LCAP is a companion to LCFF and is the state’s vehicle for engagement and transparency.
