Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)
The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a plan that describes the goals, actions, services, and expenditures to support positive student outcomes that address state and local priorities. The LCAP provides an opportunity for local educational agencies (LEAs) to share their stories of how, what, and why programs and services are selected to meet their local needs.
The state’s new accountability system was created to assist stakeholders in engaging with Tustin Unified in productive conversations around the LCAP. The new system requires districts to align academic programs and district services with their spending plans. Performance on these multiple measures will be reported through the California School Dashboard.
The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is an important district planning document that includes the District’s big goals for the next three years, the actions and services the District will implement to achieve those goals, the funding that the district will spend on the actions and services, and the measurable outcomes that will be used to evaluate success.
A key part of the LCAP is describing how the District is using targeted funds (LCFF Supplemental and Concentration Grant funding) to meet the needs of English Learners, Foster Youth, Homeless Youth, and Low-Income students.
