Strategic Plan Update: Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)
San José Unified has updated our strategic plan through a series of stakeholder engagements. The district will be submitting the update to the state in our 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.
SJUSD invites you to review the draft LCAP that will be presented at the June 15 Board of Education meeting during its public hearing. In addition, you may review the comments received from the District Advisory Committee (DAC) and District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) to which SJUSD has responded.
Thank you for your continued partnership with San José Unified in preparing all students to be the thinkers, leaders, and creators of tomorrow.
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 toward 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 five components:
- Plan Summary: Summarizes what went well and what we’re going to work on.
- Annual Update: Highlights SJUSD’s progress achieved and budget spent in 2016-17 compared to our stated goals and actions.
- Stakeholder Engagement: Overviews the process used to engage parents, pupils, staff, and the community, and how this engagement contributed to development of the plan.
- Goals, Actions, & Services: SJUSD’s three-year plan that defines our annual goals and specifies the actions and budget allocated to achieve these goals.
- Demonstration of Increased or Improved Services for Unduplicated Pupils: 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.
