What is the LCAP?

The LCAP is a critical part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). Under the LCFF all Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) are required to prepare an LCAP, which describes how they intend to meet annual goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities identified pursuant to Education Code Section 52060(d).

California school districts and charter schools must engage parents, educators, employees, and the community to establish the LCAP plan. The plan will describe the school’s overall vision for students, annual goals and specific actions that will be taken to achieve the vision and goals. The LCAPs must focus on eight areas identified as state priorities. The plans will also demonstrate how the school’s budget will help achieve the goals, and assess each year how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes.

What are the eight state priority areas that must be addressed in the plans?

There are eight areas for which school districts and charter schools, with parent and community input, must establish goals and actions. The areas are:

  1. Student Achievement

  2. Student Engagement

  3. Other Student Outcomes

  4. School Climate

  5. Parent Involvement

  6. Implementation of Academic Standards, including a focus on English Learners

  7. Course Access

  8. Basic Services, including facilities, qualified teachers, and instructional materials

In addition to these eight areas, a district may also identify and incorporate in its plan goals related to its own local priorities.

What are the school goals that will address the priorities?

Delta Charter has two goals, which incorporate all eight state priorities.

Goal 1 – Provide a broad curriculum, based on State Standards that reflect evidence of rigor and relevance, which will produce students who are college and career ready

Goal 2 – Involve all stakeholders in strengthening learning environments that are effective, engaging and safe.

Delta Charter’s Plan to Develop a Collaborative LCAP -  

Delta Charter has been working on developing the LCAP the coming school year, and will gather information from parents and the local community over the next few weeks. The purpose of gathering this information is to review the findings and to assess and identify priorities for the LCAP. A team of stakeholders will create the LCAP document in a collaborative process.

What is parents’ role?

The new LCFF and LCAPs provide a great opportunity for parents to further engage in the decisions that impact their children and our school. Delta Charter School strongly encourages stakeholder participation and engagement in the LCAP process. Parents can have their voices heard by –
