Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCP) Information

What is the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCP)?

The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (Learning Continuity Plan) is a key part of the overall budget package for K-12 that seeks to address funding stability for schools while providing information at the local educational agency (LEA) level for how student learning continuity will be addressed during the COVID-19 crisis in the 2020–21 school year. The provisions for the plan were approved by the Governor and Legislature in June in SB 98 and can be found in Education Code Section 43509.

The Learning Continuity Plan template memorializes the planning process already underway for the 2020–21 school year and includes descriptions of the following: addressing gaps in learning; conducting meaningful stakeholder engagement; maintaining transparency; addressing the needs of unduplicated pupils, students with unique needs, and students experiencing homelessness; providing access to necessary devices and connectivity for distance learning; providing resources and supports to address student and staff mental health and social emotional well-being; and continuing to provide school meals for students.

What is the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)?

The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is the new method of funding for public schools.  School districts are funded through a 
base grant for every student (adjusted by grade level).  Additional supplemental grants are provided for students (unduplicated pupils) defined as low-income students, English Learners, and Foster Youth.  Districts receive additional concentration grants
  when the amount of these students make up more than 55% of total enrollment.

What is the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)?

part of the LCFF, school districts are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).
 The LCAP consists of how funds will be spent to provide a high quality educational program through annual goals, actions and services for implementing those goals, and progress monitoring of the goals, actions, and services based on the eight priorities set by the state.

State Priorities


As the district develops the LCAP annually, we are required to solicit input from/consult with all stakeholders (teachers, principals, administrators, other school personnel, local bargaining units, parents, and pupils).  We value the input of all stakeholders and encourage you to join us in developing our LCAP.  This can be done through: completing the online survey, attending site/district meetings, or communicating with site/district administrators.
