What is a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)?
The Local Control and Accountability Plan or LCAP is a critical part of California’s new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). It is a three-year, district-level plan that is updated annually. The plan describes TIA's key goals for students as well as the specific actions and allocations the charter school will make to achieve the goals and the means (metrics) to measure progress.
The LCAP addresses the needs of all students, including specific student groups, and all LEA/charter schools must specifically address English learners, foster youth, and low-income students.
In addition, the LCAP must address the state of California's eight priority areas that include student academic achievement, school climate, student access to a broad curriculum, and parent engagement. Charter schools may identify their own local priorities.
