Local Control Accountability Plan
School districts are required to engage parents, students, teachers, administrators, and other school personnel to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP describes how the district will spend funds and outlines the goals for improving student outcomes in accordance with eight priorities set by the State of California. The 2021-22 LCAP contains a review of the 2019 LCAP, the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan for the 2020-21 school year, the 2021 LCAP and the Budget Overview for Parents. The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan replaced the LCAP for the 2020-21 school year during the pandemic-related closure of schools.
Expanded learning opportunities grant plan
The following is the local educational agency’s (LEA’s) plan for providing supplemental instruction and support to students, including those identified as needing academic, social-emotional, and other supports, including the provision of meals and snacks. The plan will explain how the LEA will use the funds it receives through the Expanded Learning Opportunities (ELO) Grant to implement a learning recovery program for at least the students included in one or more of the following groups: low-income students, English learners, foster youth, homeless students, students with disabilities, students at risk of abuse, neglect, or exploitation, disengaged students, and students who are below grade level, including, but not limited to, those who did not enroll in kindergarten in the 2020–21 school year, credit-deficient students, high school students at risk of not graduating, and other students identified by certificated staff.
On July 1, 2013 State of California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law a new formula for how California public schools will be funded beginning in the 2014-2015 school year. This law is the most significant change to school district funding in past decades and makes fundamental changes to how state revenues are allocated to schools. When fully implemented the new formula will allocate educational funds based on the demographic profile of the students a district serves and will allow maximum flexibility at the local level.
At the core of this change is the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) that allows for greater local control and decision-making. The LCFF provides additional resources for students with the greatest needs including low income, English language learners, and foster youth. The formula also requires that school districts align their goals and actions with their budget and expenditures. Each of these areas --- appropriate resource allocation and aligning our actions with our budget --- has long been of paramount importance to the Fremont Union High School District.
As part of the LCFF, school districts are required to engage parents, students, teachers, administrators, and other school personnel to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP describes how the district will spend funds and outlines the goals for improving student outcomes in accordance with eight priorities set by the State of California.
The new state funding formula and accountability plan will not change the existing and enduring commitment of the Fremont Union High School District to educate capable, caring, contributing citizens for life. These new state requirements allow us to build upon our dedication to involve all stakeholders to provide the best possible education for our students.
Each year, a new LCAP is prepared with multiple meetings taking place to gather stakeholder feedback.
