What is the LCAP?


The Local Control and Accountability Plan or LCAP is a critical part of California's new 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 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 that include student academic achievement, school climate, student access to a broad curriculum, and parent engagement. School districts may identify their own local priorities and San Diego Unified includes its 12 quality school indicators that are part of Vision 2020. The district spending plan aligns to these academic priorities.

Links to San Diego Unified's LCAP documents are provided below.

San Diego Unified is currently seeking feedback to inform the 2021/2022 LCAP. Input is important and helps SDUSD identify needs, goals, and spending priorities.

The annual LCAP Survey was developed to gather feedback from stakeholders to inform the Local Control Accountability Plan. The feedback collected in this survey as well as community forums will be incorporated in the 21/22 LCAP.  The Survey will be open for the duration of the LCAP Process.
