Local Control and Accountability Plan

The LCAP is a tool for educational agencies to set goals, plan actions, and leverage resources to meet those goals to improve student outcomes.  It is a three-year plan that describes the goals, actions, services, and expenditures to support positive student outcomes that address state and local priorities. The LCAP provides an opportunity for local educational agencies (LEAs) to share their stories of how, what, and why programs and services are selected to meet their local needs.
As a critical component of the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) law, every school district must engage parents and the community to create a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP is intended to be a comprehensive planning tool. Each school district’s LCAP must focus on priority areas that help all students succeed.

LCAP - Budget Overview for Parents
California Education Code (EC) Section 52064.1 requires each school district, County Office of Education (COE), and Charter School (LEA) to develop the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) Budget Overview for Parents (BOP) in conjunction with the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) by July 1 of each year.
Since the requirement to adopt an LCAP for the 2020-21 year has been waived, SB 98 added EC section 43509 which changed the adoption date for the Budget Overview for Parents for the 2020-21 school year. Local Governing Boards or governing bodies are now required to adopt and submit the BOP in conjunction with the LEA's First Interim Budget Report.
The LCAP Budget Overview for Parents for SLVUSD and SLV Charter were both approved by the Board at the December 16, 2020 Board Meeting and are available for review below.
Executive Order N-56-20 requires that all LEAs complete a "Written Report" to explain the changes to program offerings that were made in response to school closures - to include:
  • Impact of school closures on students and families
  • Description of how the LEA is meeting the needs of its unduplicated students
  • Steps taken to support the following during the period of school closure:
    • Delivering high quality distance learning opportunities
    • Provide school meals in non-congregate settings
    • Arrange for supervision of students during ordinary school hours
The "Written Report was adopted by the SLVUSD Board of Trustees on June 3, 2020 and is available below for review.
The District’s main goals are as follows:
  • Goal 1:  Math Instruction
  • Goal 2:  Social Emotional Learning
  • Goal 3:  Instructional Technology and Computer Science
