The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) and Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)

    The Local Control and Accountability Plan or LCAP is a three-year plan that supports SBSD's strategic goals and action steps to meet those goals. It describes how school districts intend to meet annual goals for all students, with action steps to provide a high quality instructional program that address state and local priorities. The LCAP is required to address eight priorities outlined by the state: basic services, implementation of Common Core State Standards, course access, student achievement, parental involvement, student engagement, school climate, and other student outcomes.

    Engaging stakeholders in the development and refinement of the LCAP supports the development of an effective plan that supports positive student outcomes.

    The LCAP is an important part of the Local Control Funding Formula, or LCFF. As a requirement of the LCFF, school districts must develop, adopt, and annually update a LCAP three-year plan. Local property tax revenues for Solana Beach School District exceed the allocation we would receive from the state through LCFF. For this reason, Solana Beach will continue to be a community-funded school district (sometimes referred to as “Basic Aid”). Even though we are a community-funded school district, we must adhere to the accountability requirements of the LCFF and develop an LCAP. Every school district must have an updated LCAP in place by the end of June each year. 

    2021-24 Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)

    Our district gathered feedback from all educational partner groups on the development of the LCAP. The Board of Education held a Public Hearing to solicit recommendations and comments regarding the LCAP at the board meeting on June 16, 2022. The LCAP was approved by the Board of Education at their meeting on June 23, 2022.
