Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)

Overview

2022–23 Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)

Including:

Purpose

LCAP

California Education Code (EC) sections 52060, 52066, and 47606.5 require all LEAs, which include school districts, county offices of education (COEs), and charter schools, to develop and adopt an LCAP on or before July 1st of each year.

Adopted 2022–23 LCAP Template (DOCX) Adopted by the SBE on November 4, 2021

Budget Overview for Parents

EC Section 52064.1 requires all LEAs, which include school districts, COEs, and charter schools, to develop the Budget Overview for Parents in conjunction with the LCAP by July 1st of each year.

The Budget Overview for Parents must be attached as a cover to the LCAP and must be posted prominently as part of the LCAP on the LEA’s homepage.

LCFF Budget Overview for Parents (XLSX) Approved on December 1, 2021

Supplement to the Annual Update to the 2021–22 LCAP

Section 124 of Assembly Bill 130 requires all LEAs, including COEs, school districts, and charter schools, to complete a one-time supplement to the annual update for the 2021–22 LCAP.

The intent of the one-time supplemental document is to provide a mid-year update to the LEA’s local governing board or body regarding the LEA’s utilization of the additional funds received from the Budget Act of 2021 and the American Rescue Plan Act (ESSER III funds), as applicable.

LEAs must present the Supplement to the Annual Update to the 2021–22 LCAP as part of the update to their local governing board or body required by subsection (e) of Section 124 of AB 130. LEAs are required to provide the required update to their local governing board or body on or before February 28, 2022.

The Supplement to the Annual Update to the 2021–22 LCAP is considered part of the 2022–23 LCAP for the purposes of adoption, review, and approval on or before July 1, 2022.

Supplement to the Annual Update to the 2021–22 LCAP Template (DOCX) Adopted by the State Board of Education (SBE) on November 4, 2021

CSI Prompts

The CSI Prompts are only applicable to LEAs with a school(s) eligible for CSI.

Beginning in 2019–2020, the State Board of Education (SBE) added three CSI prompts to the Plan Summary section of the LCAP. The CSI prompts serve as the mechanism by which the SBE approves CSI Plans.

The CSI prompts and the CSI plan are two distinctively different documents and processes. The CSI prompts do not serve as the CSI plan. The LEA uses the CSI prompts to report to the SBE its efforts to develop, implement, and monitor its CSI plan.

LEAs, including charter schools, with a school(s) eligible for CSI will address the CSI prompts as part of the Plan Summary in the 2022–23 LCAP.

A charter school is required to submit its 2022–23 LCAP Plan Summary with the completed CSI prompts to the COE in the county in which the charter school resides for approval of the CSI prompts on or before July 1, 2022.

LCAP Action Tables

Included as part of the LCAP are the LCAP Action Tables. The following action tables are required to be included in the 2022–23 LCAP as adopted by the local governing board or governing body:

  • Total Expenditures Table
  • Contributing Actions Table
  • Annual Update Table
  • Contributing Actions Annual Update Table
  • LCFF Carryover Table

The Data Entry table may be included in the LCAP adopted by the local governing board or governing body, but is not required to be included.

Adopted 2022–23 Action Tables (XLSX) Adopted by the SBE on November 4, 2021

Due Date and to Whom

The 2022–23 LCAP, inclusive of the Budget Overview for Parents, the Supplement to the 2021–22 LCAP, the LCAP Action Tables, and, if applicable to the LEA, responses to the CSI prompts in the LCAP, must be adopted by the LEA’s local governing board or body at a public meeting on or before July 1, 2022.

All documents must be submitted within 5 days of adoption by the LEA’s local governing board or body:

  • COEs and single-district counties submit their LCAPs to the California Department of Educationa via email at LCAPReview@cde.ca.gov.
  • School districts submit their LCAPs to their COE.
  • Charter schools submit their LCAPs to their chartering authority and the COE of the county in which the charter school operates (or just COE if it is the chartering authority).

Implementation Timeline

2021–24

Required Revisions

LEAs must update the LCAP each year through the annual update process.

LCAP Federal Addendum

Overview

Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) Federal Addendum

Within California, LEAs that apply for Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) funds are required to complete the LCAP, the LCAP Federal Addendum, and the Consolidated Application (ConApp). The LCAP, in conjunction with the LCAP Federal Addendum and the ConApp, serve to meet the ESSA LEA Plan requirement.

Note: The LCAP Federal Addendum only applies to LEAs that receive ESSA Title funds.

Purpose

The LCAP Federal Addendum is only submitted for approval by the California Department of Education (CDE) and the California State Board of Education (SBE) once.

LEAs that received CDE and SBE approval for their LCAP Federal Addendum in 2019–2020, 2020–21, and/or 2021–22 do not need to resubmit an LCAP Federal Addendum for the 2022–23 school year or any year thereafter.

LEAs that are applying for ESSA Title funding for the first time in 2022–23 are required to complete and submit LCAP Federal Addenda for the applicable ESSA Title programs to the CDE and SBE for approval in the 2022–23 school year.

Once the LEA submits its 2022–23 ConApp in the Consolidated Application and Reporting System (CARS) to apply for ESSA Title funding, the LEA may access the CDE’s LCAP Federal Addendum submission system and submit responses to the provisions for the applicable ESSA Titles for CDE approval.

LCAP Federal Addendum Template (DOCX)

Due Date and to Whom

In order to receive federal Title funds, the LEA must have an ESSA LEA Plan on file with the SBE.

For LEAs applying for federal Title funds for the first time, they must submit a local governing board or body-approved LCAP Federal Addendum, for the applicable ESSA Title programs, within the CDE’s LCAP Federal Addendum submission system for CDE review and approval on or before March 31, 2023.

Following the CDE’s review of the LCAP Federal Addendum, the CDE will submit the LCAP Federal Addendum to the SBE for approval, enabling the LEA to be eligible to receive ESSA Title funding.

Implementation Timeline

Ongoing

Required Revisions

Revisions or updates to CDE and SBE-approved LCAP Federal Addenda may be made at the local level, consistent with specific Title requirements, and do not need to be submitted within the CDE’s LCAP Federal Addendum system. However, it is the responsibility of the LEA to adhere to the revision and update requirements specific to each Title, as applicable. It is recommended that LEAs contact the individual Title program offices for additional guidance.

CSI Plan/ATSI Plan

Overview

Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) Plan

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires state educational agencies (SEAs) to determine school eligibility for CSI. LEAs with schools that meet the criteria for CSI must partner with educational partners to locally develop and implement a plan to improve student outcomes.

The county office of education (COE) also plays a role in providing technical assistance and support to LEAs within its county that serve schools that meet the criteria for CSI.

Note: The CSI Plan is only applicable to schools eligible for CSI.

Additional Targeted Support and Improvement (ATSI) Plan

The ESSA requires state educational agencies to determine school eligibility for ATSI.

Schools that meet the criteria for ATSI must partner with educational partners to develop and implement a school-level plan to improve student outcomes.

Note: The ATSI Plan is only applicable to schools eligible for ATSI.

Purpose

LEAs with schools identified for CSI or ATSI on the 2019 California School Dashboard must develop and implement a CSI or ATSI plan for the 2022–23 school year that meets federal planning requirements consistent with ESSA sections 1111(d)(1) and 1111(d)(2), respectively.

For the 2022–23 school year, LEAs (Title I or non-Title I) must use the School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) planning process to meet CSI or ATSI planning requirements.

Single school districts and charter schools may use the 2022–23 LCAP, including educational partner engagement requirements, to serve as the CSI plan, provided that the LCAP meets CSI planning requirements consistent with ESSA Section 1111(d)(1).

While the California Department of Education (CDE) does not mandate the SPSA template or any other school-level planning template; as a convenience, the CDE has developed the SPSA template that, if completed consistent with the provided instructions and is implemented with fidelity, meets all CSI and ATSI planning requirements, as applicable.

School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) Template (DOCX)

If an LEA elects to use its own SPSA template to document its school improvement efforts, then it must ensure that its template/process addresses all school improvement planning requirements for CSI or ATSI, as applicable.

Due Date and to Whom

There is an expectation that CSI and ATSI plans for the 2022–23 school year are fully developed and approved at the local level (school and LEA) no later than the first day of the 2022–23 school year. This will ensure that students and the school receive a full year of intervention and support consistent with the LEA’s CSI or ATSI plan for that school.

Implementation Timeline

2022–23 school year

Required Revisions

LEAs may choose to revise the CSI Plan or ATSI Plan throughout the year, as needed.

SPSA

Overview

School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA)

California Education Code (EC) Section 64001 and the ESSA Section 1114(b) requires schools that operate a Title I, Part A Schoolwide Program (SWP) annually develop and implement a SWP plan.

Note: The SPSA is only applicable to schools operating a Title I, Part A SWP and/or schools eligible for CSI or ATSI.

Purpose

In general, schools operating Title I, Part A SWPs are required to complete a SPSA consistent with EC Section 64001 and convene a Schoolsite Council (SSC) consistent with the requirements in EC sections 65000 or 65001.

The exception to the requirement is that EC Section 64001(j) allows a single school district or charter school to use its LCAP, with the inclusion of Title I, Part A funded expenditures, and the educational partner requirements in EC Section 52062(a) to meet federal school planning and educational partner requirements.

The California Department of Education (CDE) does not mandate the SPSA template or any other school-level planning template. As a convenience, the CDE has developed the SPSA template that, if completed consistent with the provided instructions and implemented with fidelity, meets all federal school planning requirements, as applicable.

School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) Template (DOCX)

Due Date and to Whom

The SPSA is a one-year plan that is intended to be developed by the school’s SSC and approved by the LEA’s local governing board or body before or during the school year for which the plan is being implemented. Statute does not specify a timeline/deadline for when the development and approval of the SPSA must occur; this remains a local decision consistent with the needs of the school and local community.

The SPSA is not required to be submitted to the COE in which the LEA resides or the CDE unless the school is undergoing a Federal Program Monitoring (FPM) review or the subject of a complaint related to applicable state and federal program requirements. However, the SPSA is a public document and may be requested pursuant to the California Public Records Act.

Implementation Timeline

2022–23 school year

Required Revisions

Schools are required to annually review, evaluate, and update the SPSA.
