Local Control and Accountability Plan and LCFF Resources for School Districts

Updated Templates

Existing law requires the State Board of Education to adopt templates for purposes of the local control and accountability plans and annual updates. Existing law requires a school district, county office of education, and charter school to include the information reported in its learning continuity and attendance plan as part of the annual update to the local control and accountability plan for the 2021–22 school year.

The Annual Update Template, LCAP Template, and Expenditure Tables have been approved.

State and Local Indicators

Where can I find data for the state and local indicators?

  • More information can be found here.
  • SDCOE developed an Alternative Metrics resource to support districts and schools in identifying, collecting, and monitoring data points that provide critical information regarding the transition to, and implementation of, distance learning in their local contexts. The metrics focus on the following essential categories:
    • Access to distance learning
    • Support for family and student well-being
    • Engagement in learning
    • Access to social-emotional learning and support
    • Communication structures and processes
    • Mitigating learning loss

What data is not available at the state level?

Assessment results used to produce the Academic Indicator and the English Learner Progress Indicator (ELPI) were not available in 2020, due to the suspension of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) and English Language Proficiency Assessments of California (ELPAC).

Chronic abseenteeism rates for 2019-20 were determined not reliable and comparable. Therefore, these data are not reported for the 2019-20 school year. LEAs collect absentee data locally.

SB 98 established California Education Code Section 43509 and the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (Learning Continuity Plan) requirements for the 2020-21 school year, which requires districts to collect distance learning data to:

  • Document daily participation.
  • Complete weekly engagement records that document synchronous and asynchronous instruction and track assignments for each student.
  • Develop re-engagement strategies for students who are absent 3 days or 60 percent of the instructional day.

This local data provides much more data than would have been reported in a chronic absenteeism rate.

LCAP 101

This free workshop is developed for anyone who is new to the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). During the session, participants will learn about important timelines, the LCAP template, and planning essential engagement opportunities for stakeholders. Zoom information will be supplied once registration is confirmed.

ESSER III Template and Instructions Workshop

This one-hour workshop will focus on ESSER III Expenditure Plan requirements and provide a walkthrough of the ESSER III Expenditure Plan template and requirements. The deadline for completing a governing board adopted ESSER III plan has moved to Oct. 29. The plan must go to your October board meeting for adoption, which gives LEAs now through the end of September to complete the plan and gather the necessary stakeholder feedback. This is a requirement of all LEAs and charter schools receiving ESSER III funds. Zoom information will be supplied once registration is confirmed.

This workshop will be recorded, and we will share a hyperlinked agenda that contains the recording within a few days of the event for those unable to attend.
