As part of California’s new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) beginning on July 1, 2014. Districts will engage parents, staff, and community members to gather input to develop LCAPs that address the needs of all students. County superintendents are required to review school district LCAPs and ensure alignment of projected spending, services, and goals.
