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.
TUSD Board of Education Approved LCAP for 2023-2024
The Local Control and Accountability Plan 2023-24 (LCAP) is an important district planning document that includes the district’s big goals and the actions and services the district will implement to achieve those goals. The LCAP also details the LCFF funding that the district will spend on the actions and services and the measurable outcomes that will be used to evaluate success.
Under LCFF, districts receive:
- LCFF Base Funding: Money provided for each student served and based on average daily attendance
- LCFF Supplemental Funding: Money provided based on the number of Unduplicated Students (English Learners, Foster Youth, Homeless Youth, and Low-Income students)
A key part of the LCAP is describing how the district uses targeted funds (LCFF Supplemental Funding) to meet the needs of English Learners, Foster Youth, Homeless Youth, and Low-Income students.
The 2023-24 LCAP Draft was presented for proposal and adopted at the second board meeting on June 26, 2023.
