California Department of Education seeking feedback on LCAP template redesign

e-Connections Post

The California Department of Education (CDE) is seeking feedback from all stakeholders on the redesign of the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) template. 

The template has been redesigned to:

(a) Streamline the content and format to make it more accessible

(b) Clearly show how and where the district is improving services for unduplicated students (English Learners, socioeconomically disadvantaged students, foster youth, and homeless students).  

To provide feedback, stakeholders can visit the following link: 

Survey responses for each section of the LCAP can be submitted separately and each section provides stakeholders the opportunity to indicate their level of satisfaction as well as provide narrative feedback.  The deadline to submit the survey is November 1, 2019. 

The CDE will use the feedback provided to inform their recommendations to the State Board of Education at the January 2020 meeting.

No previous familiarity with the LCAP is required for participation in this survey. For those who do not have prior knowledge of the LCAP, this is a great opportunity to learn more about the tool districts and counties are using to communicate their goals, actions, services, and expenditures to their stakeholders.  Additional information and resources can be found below:
