9.9. Approve and adopt the 2019-2020 Local Control Accountability Plan.
Rationale:

The Local Control Accountability Plan requires approval of the Governing Board.

The new funding formula, Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), was the culmination of more than a decade of research and policy work on the California’s K-12 funding system. LCFF eliminates the vast majority of categorical spending restrictions. In their place, the LCFF establishes a more limited set of spending restrictions such as use of supplemental funds to increase or improve the services for English Learner(EL) and Low Income (LI) pupils in proportion to the increase in funds received for these specific subgroups.

 In addition to adoption a new funding formula, Chapter 47 establishes a set of new rules relation to school district transparency and accountability. Specifically, under the new rules, districts are required to adopt Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs) that disclose how funds will be spent to provide high-quality educational programs. Districts that do not meet the goals specified in their plans and fail to improve educational outcomes receive assistance through a new system of support and intervention beginning with the local County Office of Education.
