What is LCAP?

California has recently launched a significant change to how schools are funded. This new funding model uses a formula designed to provide more local control over spending. As a result, each district (in our case, each school) is required to create a Local Control and Accountability Plan often called the LCAP.


California’s new funding law addresses eight (8) areas. These areas are: student achievement, student engagement, other student outcomes, course access, school climate, basic services, parental involvement, and implementation of the Common Core State Standards. We invite you to engage with us throughout this process in envisioning what our community desires for our students.
 
As part of our schools' continuing effort to engage parent, guardian, and community input on the LCAP, the IEM Schools have developed this website to explain the new state law, post information as it becomes available, and gather feedback from you as our plan is created.
 
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for being a part of our students' success! 
 
Sincerely,
Laurie Goltara
LCAP Coordinator

Virtual Stakeholder Meeting

We are holding another virtual stakeholder meeting to review our Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). Our first meeting was on March 1 but we invite you to attend our next meeting below. This is a great opportunity for you to participate in school-wide decisions. 

The LCAP is designed for a school, through collaboration with stakeholders, to identify student needs and develop a plan to meet those needs. In the Winter we solicited feedback from families and staff. We combined that with results from iReady and other evaluations and have created a preliminary LCAP plan for the next three school years. This meeting will discuss our preliminary plan and solicit your feedback. All stakeholders (parents, students, staff, community) are encouraged to attend.  

Meeting Date:

Friday, March 5, 2021 @ 10am

Documents and Resources

  • Learning Continuity & Attendance Plan (LCP): Due to the COVID pandemic, Senate Bill (SB) 98 established that the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) would not be required for the 2020–21 school year. Instead, the California Legislature required all public schools to develop a Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCP) to address how they are responding to the COVID 19 pandemic. Our LCP was drafted, reviewed by stakeholders, and then approved by the Governing Board in the fall of 2020.

  • 2020-21 LCFF Budget Overview for Parents: The LCFF Budget Overview for Parents is designed to be presented as a cover to the annual LCAP.
