Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)

Top of Page

With the change to the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) in 2013-14, all school districts in California are now required to develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).  This is the second installment of a three-year plan with specific goals and actions/services designed to address the eight priorities established by the California Department of Education. In addition to other forms of engagement with various stakeholders (students, parents, staff, administration, the Board), the approval process for the SUHSD LCAP requires a public hearing be held so the Board can hear comments on the 2020-2021 Annual Update, 2022-2023 LCAP, and Parent Budget Overview.  A public hearing was held at the June 14, 2022 regular Board meeting, and the LCAP was approved by the Board at the June 21, 2022 special Board meeting.

In response to COVID-19, the U.S. Congress passed American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act, which was signed into law on March 11, 2021. The main funding source for local educational agencies (LEAs) in the ARP Act is the ESSER III Fund. In order to receive funds, LEAs must submit an expenditure plan to the California Department of Education.
