Strategic Plan Update: Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)

San José Unified School District (SJUSD) has updated its strategic plan, OPPORTUNITY21, through a series of stakeholder engagements. The District will be submitting the update to the state in its Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). Through more than 30 sessions across seven months, SJUSD has collected input from students, staff, families and community members to shape the LCAP.

Additional context on the LCAP is provided below. If you have any questions, please contact Stephen McMahon (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or 408.535.6000).

Thank you for your continued partnership in helping SJUSD to eliminate the opportunity gap and ensure all of our students have the finest 21st century skills.

What is the LCAP?
Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP): Each year Districts are required to develop a Local Control and Accountability Plan that explains the district’s:
(1) Prior year progress against its goals
(2) Goals and actions planned for the next three years
(3) Process to engage parents, community, staff and students in the development of the plan
The plan should clearly explain how the planned actions and budget allocations will meet the state and District priority areas.

How is the LCAP organized?

The LCAP has four components:

  • Section 1 - Stakeholder engagement:  Overviews the process used to engage parents, pupils, staff and the community, and how this engagement contributed to development of the plan.
  • Section 2 
  • o Goals, actions, expenditures and progress indicators:  SJUSD’s three-year plan that defines our annual goals and specifies the actions and budget allocated to achieve these goals.
    o Annual update:  Highlights SJUSD’s progress achieved and budget spent in 2014-15 against our stated goals and actions.
  • Section 3 - Use of Supplemental and Concentration Grant Funds and Proportionality: Identifies the funding allocated by the district based on the number of English Learners, low-income students and foster youth served, and describes how funds will be used.
