The San Diego County Office of Education's Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is based on the Board of Education goals and strategic objectives, and state priorities. It includes goals, metrics, actions, and services for its student programs.
SDCOE serves our county's most vulnerable students by providing educational services to minors incarcerated in Juvenile Court detention facilities and camps, students referred as high-risk or on probation, and students with disabilities. The SDCOE LCAP for its Momentum Learning and special education schools focuses on ensuring all students are prepared for college and career.
2016-19 SDCOE LCAP
The LCAP is reviewed every year to guide three years of performance-based planning and operational decision-making.
The SDCOE 2016-17 LCAP for the years 2016 through 2019 is available below.
The county Board of Education receives regular updates on the progress of the LCAP goals. The LCAP goal presentations will be posted below as available.
SDCOE LCAP Goals
- We will create rigorous learning environments that support positive behavior through ensuring high-quality teaching and incorporating supports to ensure student success.
- We will improve the language and mathematics achievement of ALL students with enhanced structures and supports to ensure the progress of students who are English learners, other unduplicated student groups, and students with disabilities.
- We will ensure that students have access to college, career technical education, and other post-secondary options.
- We will work effectively with parents, families, and community partners to support student learning and achievement.

Upcoming SDCOE LCAP Meetings
Opportunities for stakeholders to meet and build a common understanding of the goals, actions, and services, as well as learn about the metrics that will inform our continuing monitoring of progress have been scheduled. These meetings will allow for discussion and questions to clarify understanding.
Student informational sessions will be offered during regular student leadership activities. There will be regularly scheduled parent meetings and School Site Council meetings that will include an LCAP agenda item.

SDCOE LCAP Background
In 2013, the State of California adopted a new funding system, known as the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), which provides a uniform funding level for every student in California with additional revenue to serve students with the greatest needs such as our students who are English learners, children from low-income families, and foster youth.
Under the new formula, school districts must create an LCAP that sets goals for student achievement and describes how the district will use its budget to achieve those goals, paying particular attention to traditionally underserved student populations. In developing these plans, districts must get input from parents, staff, students and the community.
The LCAP includes annual goals aligned to the eight state priorities specified by state officials: student achievement, student engagement, other student outcomes, school climate, parental involvement, basic services, implementation of California Standards, and course access.
