LCAP Consultation Committee

California recently passed legislation that changes the way state funding is allocated to public school districts. This new model is called the Local Control Funding Formula.  This new approach to funding requires that districts establish goals toward eight areas that provide students with high quality educational programs through the development of a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The goals and the strategies to address them need to be described in a (LCAP), and are to address the following state priority areas:

  1. Providing all students access to fully credentialed teachers, instructional materials that align with state standards, and safe facilities.
  2. Implementation of California’s academic standards, including the Common Core State Standards in English language arts and math, Next Generation Science Standards, English language development, history social science, visual and performing arts, health education and physical education standards.
  3. Parent involvement and participation, so the local community is engaged in the decision-making process and the educational programs of students.
  4. Improving student achievement and outcomes along multiple measures, including test scores, English proficiency and college and career preparedness.
  5. Supporting student engagement, including whether students attend school or are chronically absent.
  6. Highlighting school climate and connectedness through a variety of factors, such as suspension and expulsion rates and other locally identified means.
  7. Ensuring all students have access to classes that prepare them for college and careers, regardless of what school they attend or where they live.
  8. Measuring other important student outcomes related to required areas of study, including physical education and the arts.

PUSD will be working with a representative group of stakeholders in the development of a LCAP.   We have formed a Local Control and Accountability Plan Consultation Committee made up of parents, teachers, administrators, student and board of education representation.  The primary purpose of the LCAP Consultation Committee is to:

  • Provide input from various stakeholder groups within the district and community.
  • Review data that reflects PUSD’s student population’s needs and understand how LCFF funds must be used to meet these needs.
  • Understand the required components of the Local Control Accountability Plan and provide feedback on its content.

The Committee will meet regularly to provide consultation in the development of the Plan that will be brought to the PUSD School Board for approval later in the spring.
