Program Description

This program was established following the passage of Proposition 47, the Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act (SNSA).

California voters passed Proposition 47, the Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act External link opens in new window or tab. (SNSA), in November 2014. Subsequent legislation in 2016 established the Learning Communities for School Success Program (LCSSP).

The LCSSP was established for the purpose of implementing the K-12 education portion of the SNSA. Through this program, the Department will administer grants and coordinate assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) to support their efforts in identifying and implementing evidence-based, nonpunitive programs and practices aligned with the goals for pupils contained in each of their local control and accountability plans (LCAP), pursuant to Education Code (EC) Section 47606.5, 52060, or 52066, as applicable.

Purpose

The goals of the LCSSP are to support evidence-based, non-punitive programs and practices to keep the state’s most vulnerable pupils in school. These programs and practices must complement and enhance the actions and services identified to meet the LEA’s goals per the LEA’s LCAP.

Eligibility

Applicants are limited to LEAs within the State of California that serve students in K—12, inclusive. This includes all charter schools, school districts, and county offices of education (COEs) in their role as providers of direct student services in COE-operated schools.

All applicants must have a CDE-assigned County/District/School identification code and be classified as an active LEA by the CDE. Individual schools are not eligible to apply.

Multiple LEAs may choose to form a consortium submitting a single application. Further information on consortium applications is located in the corresponding Request for Applications.
