Among the many big changes in education in California is the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP is an important instrument for measuring our progress as a high-performing school, and we want to illuminate this process as Health Sciences High & Middle College prepares to meet new state requirements.
The LCAP is a requirement due to the changes to state funding made by the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). The LCFF is the state’s new funding formula for education that provides decision-making power to local education agencies, empowering districts to act based on the needs they see fit for their students.
In simplest terms, the LCAP is LCFF’s vehicle for transparency and engagement. It is the way that school are expected to share performance data, needs, actions, and anticipated outcomes that guide the use of available LCFF funding.
