What is the LCAP?

Local Control and Accountability Plan

California uses a system referred to as the “Local Control Funding Formula” (LCFF) to determine how schools are funded. Districts determine how to spend funds to best meet students’ needs; involvement and input from teachers, staff, administrators, parents, students, and community members is required in making decisions about how funds are spent. The final plan for achieving goals and spending funds is the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).

There are many steps in the process to ensure that all stakeholders have an opportunity to provide input and review action items before the LCAP is implemented.

Ultimately, the plan must be reviewed by the stakeholders across the district. Because we are a district that has 15 percent or more English learners, a separate parent committee must provide feedback in this area. District representatives will meet with various school site committees. The final plans must be approved by July 1.


LCAP Input Meetings

The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) Input Meetings are exciting opportunities for you and your school communities to engage with the District and share your ideas for how Newark Unified can provide quality opportunities and supports for Newark youth and schools. By 2021, when the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is fully implemented, NUSD will have significant increases in per student allocations! Your participation and feedback will inform the District’s LCAP’s funding priorities over the next several years.
