Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
The Local Control and Accountability Plan or LCAP is a critical part of California's new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). It is a three-year plan that is updated annually. The plan describes the school district's key goals for students as well as the specific actions (with expenditures) the district will take to achieve the goals and the means (metrics) used to measure progress.
The LCAP addresses the needs of all students, including specific student groups, and all districts must specifically address English learners, foster youth, and low-income students. In addition, the LCAP must address the state of California's eight priority areas that include student academic achievement, school climate, student access to a broad curriculum, and parent engagement.

Theory of Action
Crosswalk LCAP Goal to State Priority
The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is a California funding calculation that recognizes that students with additional academic needs – low-income, English language learner, and foster youth students – need additional financial resources to support their education.
The LCFF provides three levels of funding:
- Per-pupil “base grant”
- “Supplemental grant” for each student in one of the three student groups,
- "Concentration grant” for districts with more than 55% of their students in one of those three groups.
The LCFF’s local accountability counterpart, the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is then used as a planning tool to show how districts will improve student outcomes and overall performance in alignment with California’s eight State Priorities.
