UDS Framework for Pandemic Response

We are currently offering ONLY in-person learning, with independent study contracts for students needing to miss school for extended periods. Please visit our Board Policies page for specifics on our independent study policy.
Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)
Each year, California schools must create or revise our Local Control and Accountability Plans to spend LCFF (Local Control Funding Formula) funds, designed to better support students qualifying for free or reduced-price meals, English Learners, and foster youth. LCAP planning is a collaborative process, involving the collection of input from various stakeholders about school goals and related resource allocation. UDA will collect input from parents/guardians via our bi-annual survey and will also hold special meetings to collect feedback. UDA's LCAP plan will be presented in a public hearing at a June Board meeting before final submission. You can review the 2022-2023 LCAP by clicking here.
Extended Learning Opportunities Grant Plan (ELO)
The Extended Learning Opportunities Grant Plan (ELO) is an overview of how is the local educational agency’s (LEA’s) plan for providing supplemental instruction and support to students, including those identified as needing academic, social-emotional, and other supports, including the provision of meals and snacks. The plan will explain how the LEA will implement a learning recovery program for students that are deemed by the state to be at risk and require additional interventions and supports due to COVID-19.

Learning Continuity & Attendance Plan (LCP)
Senate Bill 98 (SB 98) established the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (Learning Continuity Plan, LCP), which is intended to (1) require a written report and envisioned an off-cycle Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) due December 15th, and (2) the ongoing need for local educational agencies (LEAs) to formally plan for the 2020–21 school year in the midst of the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. This plan is intended to memorialize the planning process that is already underway for the 2020–21 school year. You can review the 2021 UDS LCP by clicking here. 
Elementary and Secondary School Relief Fund (ESSER III)
The American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) signed into law on March 11, 2021, provided nearly $122 billion for the Elementary and Secondary School Relief Fund (ESSER). ARP ESSER, also known as ESSER III, funds are provided to State educational agencies in the same proportion as each State received under Title I-A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) in fiscal year (FY) 2020. You can review the approved ESSER III Expenditure Plan by clicking here. 
ESSER III: Safe Return to In-Person Instruction Plan
Local Education Agencies who had a plan in place by March 11, 2021, which incorporated opportunity for public comment and was posted publicly have six months from the date their ESSER III Assurances were completed to update and revise the plans to meet those requirements. Urban Discovery Schools has a plan in place and regularly reviews that plan. You can review the state template certification form by clicking here.
