Local Control & Accountability Plan

Background on the Local Control and Accountability Plan
 
You can view the 2019-2020 LCAP here
 
The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) was enacted in 2013, requiring all school districts in California to produce a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) every three years. The LCAP is intended to provide transparency to our community about the District's goals, priorities and expenditures, and to enable the community to provide input as the budget is developed. CUHSD's LCAP goals are:
  • Human capital strategies that support staff effectiveness
  • Instruction that engages all students equitably
  • School climate that promotes physical and emotional well-being
  • Systemic, rigorous expectations with supports to help all students succeed
The LCAP describes in detail how the district will work towards achieving its goals over a three-year period. As a CUHSD community stakeholder, your participation in creating the LCAP is critical to its success. 
 
2020-2021 LCAP Development
 
The 2020-2021 LCAP will be a new three-year plan for CUHSD and will incorporate feedback from a diverse group of stakeholders in our community. The California School Dashboard will be released with updated results in December of 2019 and the State Board of Education will release a new template for the LCAP in January 2020. The District anticipates releasing an LCAP survey in January for all stakeholders to engage with about CUHSD's educational programs and will organize an LCAP Committee to review progress on outcomes as well as feedback from the community on educational programs and development of the new LCAP. 
 
New to the 2019-2020 school year is a more consistent level of engagement with our community through ThoughtExchange to follow up on popular topics from our Spring 2019 LCAP Survey.

ThoughtExchange Feedback Opportunities
Academic Supports Needed by Students - coming November 2019
 
The Board of Trustees approved the 2019-2020 LCAP on June 20, 2019. Click here to download the final LCAP as approved by the Santa Clara County Office of Education: 2019-2020 LCAP.
 
Stakeholders were engaged in developing the LCAP priorities through the following venues:
  • The Superintendent visited all high school sites during March to gather staff input on budget priorities.
  • A community event, the State of the District, was held on April 15 to inform stakeholders about the District's budget opportunities and challenges ahead. 
  • The results from the online survey ThoughtExchange were presented and discussed at the LCAP Committee, District English Learners Advisory Council and the parent representatives committee, known as the President's Council, in May. Presentation materials can be found here. Questions and answers from the committee meetings are available here.
  • Results of the online survey ThoughtExchange were shared with the LCAP Committee and on the CUHSD website in May.
  • A summary of climate survey results for parents can be found here, results for staff can be found here, and results for students can be found here.
  • The Student Well-Being Survey was piloted during May to better understand the supports and services being provided to students around socioemotional well-being and mental health.

 

Differentiated Assistance

The District was identified to receive Differentiated Assistance from the Santa Clara County Office of Education for the 2018-2019 school year because three CUHSD student groups (students with disabilities, African American students and English learner students) were rated “red” on multiple indicators on the California School Dashboard. These student groups are achieving far lower outcomes in academics, disproportionate suspensions, and lower rates of college and career preparation than their peers. If these ratings persist, the District will be identified for the highest level of support by the California Department of Education.

 

The District leadership team met with Santa Clara County Office of Education representatives for four meetings during the 2018-2019 school year, during which the team completed a root cause analysis and determined the next steps for improving student outcomes.

 

LCAP Committee Meeting

A committee comprised of staff and parents from all school sites participated in a review of ThoughtExchange survey comments and conducted an analysis of alignment and gaps in comparison with the current LCAP. The results were presented to the Board of Trustees at the annual Budget and LCAP Workshop on May 23.

The approval of a Local Educational Agency (LEA) Plan by the local school board and State Board of Education was a requirement for receiving federal funding subgrants for No Child Left Behind (NCLB) programs. The LEA Plan includes specific descriptions and assurances as outlined in the provisions included in NCLB. In essence, LEA Plans describe the actions that LEAs will take to ensure that they meet certain programmatic requirements, including student academic services designed to increase student achievement and performance, coordination of services, needs assessments, consultations, school choice, supplemental services, services to homeless students, and others as required. In addition, LEA Plans summarize assessment data, school goals and activities from the Single Plans for Student Achievement developed by the LEA’s schools.
State law requires that school-level plans for programs funded through the Consolidated Application be consolidated in a Single Plan for Student Achievement (Education Code Section 64001), developed by schoolsite councils with the advice of any applicable school advisory committees. LEA’s allocate NCLB funds to schools through the Consolidated Application for Title I, Part A, Title III (Limited English Proficient), and Title V (Innovative Programs/Parental Choice). LEA’s may elect to allocate other funds to schools for inclusion in school plans. The content of the school plan includes school goals, activities, and expenditures for improving the academic performance of students to the proficient level and above. The plan delineates the actions that are required for program implementation and serves as the school's guide in evaluating progress toward meeting the goals.
