Local Control & Accountability Plan (LCAP)
Accountability

Local Control

The Local Control and Accountability Plan or LCAP is a critical part of California’s new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). It is a three-year, district-level plan that is updated annually. The plan describes the school district’s key goals for students as well as the specific actions (with expenditures) the district will take to achieve the goals and the means (metrics) used to measure progress.

The LCAP addresses the needs of all students, including specific student groups, and all districts must specifically address English learners, foster youth, and low-income students. In addition, the LCAP must address the state of California’s eight priority areas that include student academic achievement, school climate, student access to a broad curriculum, and parent engagement.

Take In

Summerville High School

This year’s LCAP focuses on the most important school and academic needs of our students and are identified in our goals.

  1. Emphasizing a rigorous academic program for every student.
  2. Increasing student engagement.
  3. Increasing student preparation for their futures.

The purpose of these goals is to emphasize preparation of every student for their futures in academics and life. Many of the actions emphasize school-wide opportunities to increase effectiveness with all students and provide opportunities for our struggling and at-risk students to be supported. The goals are tied to specific and measurable results that will indicate progress in critical areas that point to student growth and success.

Eight Priorities Create Accountablility

Z

Basic Services

Providing all students with access to fully credentialed teachers in their subject areas, as well as instructional materials that align with state standards, and safe, properly maintained school facilities.
l

Course Access

Ensuring all students have access to a broad course of study in all required subject areas, including math, social science, science, visual and performing arts, health, physical education, career and technical education and others, that prepares them for college and careers, regardless of what school they attend or where they live. 

Other Student Outcomes

Measuring other important indicators of student performance in all required areas of study.

Parent Involvement

Efforts by the school district and schools to seek input from all parents, and to engage parents in decision-making, as well as promoting parent participation in programs that meet the needs of their students and all students.

Implementation of State Standards

Ensuring school programs and services enable all students, including English learners, to access California’s academic content and performance standards, including Common Core Standards for English Language Arts and Math, Next Generation Science Standards, and English Language Development Standards.

Student Achievement

Improving achievement and outcomes for all students, as measured in multiple ways, such as test scores, English proficiency and college and career preparedness.

Student Engagement

Providing students with engaging programs and course work that keeps them in school, as measured in part by attendance rates, dropout rates and graduation rates.

School Climate

Factors both inside and outside the classroom that impact student success such as health, safety, student discipline and school connectedness, as measured in part by suspension and expulsion rates, and surveys of students, teachers, and parents.
