What is the LCAP?

The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) provides an opportunity for LEAs to share their stories of how, what, and why programs and services are selected and provided to support positive student outcomes across a broad spectrum of areas. The LCAP is intended to capture the level and type of information that comprises a good strategic plan. It does not ask for details about specific actions or tasks; rather it focuses on strategic goals, progression of outcomes, and services and related expenditures based on local need. The key determinant of what makes a good LCAP is what happens after it is written. Ideally, the process for assessing needs, developing goals, identifying services, and creating a spending plan generates a sense of focus, purpose, and motivation to support the plan’s implementation (LCFF-WestEd). Soledad Unified School District is currently in the process of collecting data in order reevaluate our current goals and actions. This data includes reclassification, catch-up and follow-up numbers for ELs, suspension rates, attendance, high school graduation and dropout rates, parental input and parental involvement rates, and etc. There is a multitude of data points which will be shared with all stakeholders in order to make informed planning steps for next year's LCAP.
