Note: All local educational agencies (LEAs) applying for Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) funds must maintain an updated Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) Federal Addendum as the ESSA LEA Plan. LEAs applying for Title III subgrants for the first time must complete the LCAP Federal Addendum and submit it through the California Department of Education LCAP Federal Addendum System. LEAs are encouraged to review the LCAP Federal Addendum annually with the LCAP, as ESSA funding should be considered in yearly strategic planning.
