This year, school districts will once again be developing their three-year Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs). You can get more information about what the LCAP is and why it matters at https://capta.org/focus-areas/lcfflcap/.
The state is revising the template that districts use to do this important work, and they have asked California State PTA to help them get parents’ opinions about the changes. If you have been part of your school or district planning process, your feedback is particularly important.
The Department of Education has put together an on-line survey that can be accessed here: https://www.lcapredesign.org/. The deadline for completing the survey is November 1. The State Board is required to adopt a revised LCAP template at their January meeting.
The survey – like the LCAP itself – is quite comprehensive but is presented in sections. You can choose to review every LCAP section or only those you are most interested in. We hope you’ll take a few minutes to give your reactions.
