SDCOE has also developed and collected a variety of LCAP and LCFF materials and toolkits to support your district's process.

Putting It All Together 

​​New this year, Putting It All Together, a five-session series, ties the key actions necessary throughout the school year for a successful LCAP with professional learning and networking. The series is designed for district teams made up of district and site administrators, LCAP leads, and program, data, student support, business, and human resources specialists. 
Registration includes admission to all five dates (with one alternate start date). District teams of three receive a 20 percent discount. 

Nov. 10 (SDCOE) 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

Day two of the series will review the state LCAP template and new accountability measures. Continue building LCAP strength with best practices for foster youth and homeless students, highlights from a local district, and resources to build effective stakeholder communication and design an executive summary. ​

Jan. 26 (SDCOE) 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

Day three of the series strengthens the LCAP annual update and budgeting process by helping district teams break down CELDT data and identify how to use formative, interim, and summative assessments to support the LCAP goals and outcomes. It also includes LCAP eTemplate support and best practices in stakeholder engagement.

March 21 (SDCOE) 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

Day four of the series supports districts as they disaggregate student demographic data for the LCAP and in aligning and connecting the LCAP to other plans, such as Title III, SPSA, and technology. The session includes best practices from local districts, as well as expert support on suspension and attendance practices. 

May 11 (SDCOE) 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

The final day lives up to the series' name with expert support as districts finalize the LCAP writing, align the LCAP to business and programs, and ensure the ​plan includes measurable outcomes, stakeholder involvement, and budget support. Putting It All Together also includes setting the stage for the 2017-18 LCAP process.
