SBUSD Local Control Accountability Plan

Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

As a part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), school districts, County Offices of Education (COE’s), and charter schools are required to develop, adopt and annually update a three year Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).

The LCAP must focus on eight areas identified as California educational priorities as well as the South Bay Union School District’s Local Priorities. The eight areas of specified state priorities are intended to encompass the key components of high-quality educational programs. The plan must describe the overall vision for students, annual goals and strategic actions needed to achieve the goals. In formulating the plan, each school district, COE and charter school must engage parents, employees, educators, and the community in developing these plans.

The plan must demonstrate how the budget ensures alignment of projected spending and services to support the achievement of the goals. Each year the plan must provide data on how well the plan meets the overall goals and the goals for each numerically significant student subgroup.

Over the course of the 2023/24 school year, we have worked collaboratively with many stakeholder groups to inform, review and revise the goals and action steps that are included in our LCAP. Our Educational Partners group was formed consisting of parents, staff and community members.  This team has met several times throughout the school year.  In addition, we have met and sought input from ELAC, DELAC, District Advisory Committee, District PTA Council, certificated and classified bargaining units, and management teams.  These input sessions included a priority setting activity and provided written input, guidance and feedback during the review and revision process. In addition, input was gathered from SBUSD families via a parent survey, students and staff completed a survey as well. 

As a result of stakeholder input and feedback, the LCAP was revised on an ongoing basis during the months of January through May.

The governing board held a public hearing on June 2, 2024 to solicit the recommendations and comments of members of the public regarding the specific actions and expenditures proposed to be included in the LCAP. An opportunity for written comment and questions was provided to the public from June 3, 2024 to June 19, 2024. The LCAP was presented and approved by the board on June 20, 2024.
