Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)


What is the LCAP?

The Local Control and Accountability Plan or LCAP is a critical part of California's Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). It is a three-year, district-level plan that is updated annually. The plan describes the school district's key goals for all students as well as the specific actions (with expenditures) the district will take to achieve the goals and the means (metrics) used to measure progress.


The LCAP addresses the needs of all students, including specific student groups, and all districts must specifically address English learners, foster youth, and low-income students. In addition, the LCAP must address the state of California's eight priority areas that include student academic achievement, school climate, student access to a broad curriculum, and parent engagement. School districts may identify their own local priorities. The District spending plan aligns to the LCAP goals and the eight state priorities.

2020 SGUSD Virtual Academy Learning Continuity Plan:
UPDATE: Senate Bill 98, approved by Governor Newsom on 6.29.20, made several key changes to accountability requirements for 2020-21.  These include the establishment of a new requirement – The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan – that must be adopted by 9.30.20.  Also changed was the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) timeline previously established by Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-56-20.  Per SB 98, a 2020-21 LCAP is no longer required.  LCAP efforts in the 2020-21 year will now be focused on development of the next three-year LCAP (2021-22 through 2023-24) to be approved in June 2021.  Additional information regarding the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan can be found here.
