Local Control and Accountability Plan Approved by Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees approved the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) at the June 24, 2014 Board of Education meeting.
The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is a major change to how California has supported school districts. Through LCFF districts are required to provide a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) that is written from stakeholder feedback. Stakeholders include parents, students, staff, and community members. In addition, this shifts California from treating funding as an input to support students to a resource that is linked to performance expectations.
LCFF also emphasizes equity and provides funding for English learners, low income students, and foster youth referred to as supplemental and concentration grants. Sylvan District does not meet the minimum percentage requirement to receive concentration grant funds. The State budget projects the timeframe for full implementation of LCFF to be eight years beginning in 2013-2014.
