Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan
The public can view the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan by clicking here for English or here for Spanish. Adoption of the plan occurred at the September 24, 2020, regular Board meeting.
Due to ongoing COVID-19 school closures, school districts across California have made substantial changes to their plans for the 2020-2021 school year. Each school district adopted a Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan before September 30, 2020, that described how it was providing continuity for its educational programs and services, including:
- Delivery of instruction
- Daily attendance
- Addressing learning loss
- Access to technology
- Mental health supports
- Providing meals
- Supporting students with additional needs
A Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan Committee was created with representation of staff, parents, and students to review the CUHSD's current distance learning plan and provide input on how to make improvements or add supports.
Presentations were additionally made at staff, parent/guardian, and student committees during the summer and through September. Questions from the President's Council (consisting of school site parent/guardian liaisons) and District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC), along with responses from the District Office, are provided in the document linked below.
Surveys were sent to the community multiple times since the COVID-19 closures began, including surveys about the reopening of school, learning from home, and priorities for distance learning. These surveys were used to inform the development of the plan. To the see results of these surveys follow the links below:

COVID-19 Operations Written Report
California school districts each developed a COVID-19 Operations Written Report to describe how they responded to school closures during the Spring Semester of the 2019-2020 school year. The report describes how CUHSD continued its educational programs, distributed technology, and provided meals to students during the Spring Semester school closures of the 2019-2020 school year. This report was adopted by the CUHSD Board of Trustees at the regular Board meeting held on June 25, 2020. Follow the links below to read the report.
Background on the Local Control and Accountability Plan
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
Due to the school closures that occurred as a result of COVID-19, current LCAP development activities are postponed until fall 2020. The 2020-2021 LCAP submission is delayed until December 2020. Current stakeholder feedback opportunities are focused on developing a set of fall reopening recommendations. To learn more about these opportunities please visit our CUHSD Reopening Steering Committee website
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.
