Local Control and Accountability Plan

What is the Local Control and Accountability Plan? 

The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a critical part of California's 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 all 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, including student academic achievement, school climate, student access to a broad curriculum, and parent engagement. School districts may identify their own local priorities. The District’s spending plan aligns with the LCAP goals and the eight state priorities.


LCAP Stakeholder Advisory Committee

One key aspect of the LCAP process is the engagement of all stakeholders. Staff, teachers, administrators, bargaining partners, community members, parents/guardians, and students — including foster youth, the homeless, and those from low-income and English learner communities — are to be consulted to provide feedback on the plan. HBCSD establishes an LCAP Parent Advisory Committee, as per California Education Code 52062 and 52063, to review and comment on the LCAP. The meetings of the LCAP Stakeholder Advisory Committee are open to the public. Meetings are open to the public and are held in the Library at Hermosa Vista School from 3:30-5:00 pm.

Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan 2020-2021

UPDATE: Senate Bill 98, approved by Governor Newsom on June 29, 2020, made several key changes to accountability requirements for 2020-2021. These include the establishment of a new requirement – The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan – that must be adopted by 9.30.20. Also changed was the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) timeline previously established by Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-56-20. Per SB 98, a 2020-21 LCAP is no longer required. LCAP efforts in the 2020-2021 school year will now be focused on the development of the next three-year LCAP (2021-2022 through 2023-2024) to be approved in June 2021.
