Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
As part of the State’s new funding model known as Local Control Funding Formula, school districts are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), beginning on July 1, 2014, using a template adopted by the California State Board of Education (SBE). The LCAP is required to identify goals and measure progress for student subgroups across multiple performance indicators. The LCAP elements include stakeholder engagement, goals and progress indicators, and actions, services and expenditures. Goals and actions must be included for at least the following areas:
- Basic Services
- Implementation of State Standards
- Parent Involvement
- Pupil Achievement
- Pupil Engagement
- School Climate
- Course Access
- Other Pupil Outcomes
The final LCAP was adopted by the SCSD Board of Education at it's regular board meeting on June 14, 2018. To view the approve LCAP,
In accordance with LCAP requirements, questions raised during the public hearing must be responded by the Superintendent and posted on the District’s website. The following questions from the June 7th public hearing and responses are shared below.
During the LCAP public hearing on June 7, 2018, the following questions were raised regarding the district’s plan to temporarily house SMART-E childcare in the Heather Multi-Use Room (MUR) during the 2018-2019 school year. In accordance with LCAP requirements, Interim Superintendent Doerpinghaus provided responses below.
Question: Is it in compliance with LCAP to use the MUR for SMART-E?
Answer: The LCAP provides a vehicle for stakeholder input regarding district priorities and the use of LCFF funding. While the LCAP considers facilities in support of a positive school climate and our Strategic Plan, it does not specify rules about how facilities are used. The district values community input during the LCAP process and throughout the school year, and we seek to build partnerships with parents. The questions raised during the public hearing will be included in the stakeholder input section of the LCAP.
Question: How can we come up with a solution that fits childcare needs and also our community needs?
Answer: Heather Principal, Pam Jasso, is working closely with district and SMART-E staff as well as school staff and parents to identify needs and mitigate impacts in order to ensure that current school and enrichment activities can continue in the 2018-2019 school year in support of a positive school climate, including the chess program, while also serving our families with childcare needs.
Question: Are we able to pause and keep things as status quo in order to get input from the community and consider creative solutions that suit the needs of everyone involved?
Answer: At this point, we are moving forward with the plan to use the Heather MUR for SMART-E in the 2018-2019 school year; however, Principal Jasso will continue to work with staff and parents to evaluate needs and options in preparation for the 2018-2019 school year.

Part of the LCAP process is to have the Parent Advisory Committees at each school submit their questions concerning the final draft of the LCAP for response by the Superintendent. Superintendent has fifteen (15) days to respond to these questions in writing, prior to the adoption of the LCAP. To see these questions and responses, please click here:
