LCAP Webinar

The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) process continues to evolve, with changes to the template, emerging guidance, and new related processes that aim to unite compliance elements.

Plan for new renewal terms now.

CSDC strongly suggests that charter schools take stock of new renewal criteria. This webinar will help schools start planning strategically now, to be ready in time.

Postponed: We are waiting to hear how the LCAP requirement may be modified this year. When we have updated information about the LCAP requirement, we will post resources and offer guidance as we are able.

Sessions Include

Intro to LCAP: this portion will provide an overview to LCAP basics.

  • The broader role and purpose of LCAP, as compared to other elements of charter school accountability
  • Accountability for the eight state priorities under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)
  • The LCAP planning process, not only as a compliance document but as part of a broader continuous improvement process.
  • The LCAP template, including what each section calls for

LCAP Updates: this portion will run through updates and finer points.

  • Changes to the LCAP template, including the new budget overview for parents
  • Finer points of LCAP drafting, highlighting issues that have attracted critical attention and providing emerging guidance, including on the tricky Demonstration of Increased and Improved Services section.
  • Support resources for the LCAP planning process

LCAP Federal Addendum, Performance Indicator Review, and CSI & ATSI: each of these three topics pertains to some but not all charter schools.

  • Schools accepting federal funding must now prepare an LCAP federal addendum by July 1.
  • Due to a recent change, many more LEAs (about 65% of them) now need to complete “Performance Indicator Review” planning requirements.
  • LEAs identified for Comprehensive Support and Improvement or Additional Targeted Support and Improvement must meet specified planning requirements as part of a new federal accountability process.
