EUHSD Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
What is the Local Control Funding Formula?
The local control funding formula (LCFF) was enacted in 2013–14, and it replaced the previous kindergarten through grade 12 (K–12) finance system which had been in existence for roughly 40 years. For school districts and charter schools, the LCFF establishes base, supplemental, and concentration grants in place of the myriad of previously existing K–12 funding streams, including revenue limits, general purpose block grants, and most of the 50-plus state categorical programs that existed at the time.
Under the LCFF funding system, revenue limits and most state categorical programs have been eliminated. The LCFF creates funding targets based on student characteristics and provides greater flexibility to use these funds to improve student outcomes. For school districts and charter schools, the LCFF funding targets consist of grade span-specific base grants plus supplemental and concentration grants that are calculated based on student demographic factors.
What is the Local Control Accountability Plan?
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.
Four times over the course of the year, EUHSC convenes a LCAP Advisory Committee that is made up of parent and community members. The purpose is to provide input and feedback on the actions and services that make up the programs that serve our students.
Together with all stakeholders, EUHSD believes that we can work to provide opportunities and pathways for students to achieve their academic and career goals!
