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, state priorities, and input from staff, students, families, and the community. The LCAP is the County Office's plan for supporting students who attend our Juvenile Court and Community Schools (JCCS) and special education schools.
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.
2019-20 LCAP Update
The process to update the 2017-20 static LCAP for 2019-20 is now underway.
There were multiple community forums in January as well as a staff survey to collect input from all stakeholders, including parents, students, and community partners.
The draft 2019-20 LCAP update will be presented to the San Diego County Board of Education with the opportunity for public input at the regularly scheduled May 8 meeting.
Review the 2017-20 SDCOE LCAP
The three-year, static LCAP (2017-20) is reviewed by stakeholders and adopted by the San Diego County Board of Education following public hearings in May and June each year.
The goals for the 2017-20 LCAP are:
- Ensure excellence in teaching and learning so each student is prepared to succeed in college and career.
- Cultivate stakeholder engagement to support excellence in each student's success.
- Develop coherent and transparent systems for
operational excellence to support each student’s success.
- Support the integration and transition of students who are at-risk, expelled, English learners, and foster youth to be prepared to succeed in college and career.
The County Board of Education receives regular updates on the progress of the LCAP goals.

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.
