LCAP (Local Control and Accountability Plan)
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.
Learning Continuity & Attendance Plan
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.
LCAP Federal Addendum
The LCAP Federal Addendum is meant to supplement the LCAP to ensure that eligible LEAs have the opportunity to meet the Local Educational Agency (LEA) Plan provisions of the ESSA. The CDE emphasizes that the LCAP Federal Addendum should not drive LCAP development. ESSA funds are supplemental to state funds, just as the LCAP Federal Addendum supplements your LCAP. LEAs are encouraged to integrate their ESSA funds into their LCAP development as much as possible to promote strategic planning of all resources however, this is not a requirement. In reviewing the LCAP Federal Addendum, staff will evaluate the LEA’s responses to the ESSA plan provisions.
Budget Overview for Parents
To support improved parent communications and budgeting transparency, the California Department of Education (CDE) has established a template that schools are to use to share budget information with parents.
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.
