What is the LCAP?
The LCAP is a three-year 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 provides LCAP supplemental funding to school districts based on three factors, the amount of students that can be categorized as the following: English Learners, Low-Income, and Homeless & Foster Youth. The district goes through a planning process each year where the funds received are spent in specific ways according to a detailed plan, called the LCAP.
