Sustaining a supportive learning environment.

Local Control Accountability
California's 2013-14 Budget Act includes landmark legislation that greatly simplifies the State's school finance system.  The changes introduced by the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) represented a major shift in how school districts are funded.  For nearly 40 years, schools were funded with general purpose dollars and more than 50 tightly defined categorical programs.  Under LCFF, California funds school districts per student with adjustments based on grade level and demographic characteristics.  LCFF replaces complexity in favor of equity, transparency, and performance.

The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a required component of the new funding formula.  The District's LCAP is written and developed with input from community stakeholder group-staff, parents, students and local community members.  Our stakeholders have been asked to provide input on the State's eight priority areas for the education of our students. For more information, please review the presentations listed below under "Local Control Funding Resources".

An annual forum is held within each PUHSD school community to communicate how well our students and staff are achieving the goals set within our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). This will also be an opportunity to provide input on district facilities as PUHSD begins the process of creating a facilities master plan.  Contact your school for the date of its LCAP Community Forum.

PUHSD Local Control Accountability Plan

Executive Order (EO) N-56-20 was established on April 22, 2020, to address the impact of continued school closures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the local educational agencies' ability to conduct meaningful annual planning, and the ability to meaningfully engage stakeholders in these processes. EO N-56-20 approved the waiver for the Local Control and Accountability Plan and Budget Overview for Parents requirements and established in its place the requirement that PUHSD adopt a COVID-19 Operations Written Report and Maidu Virtual Charter Academy COVID-19 Operations Written Report by June 30, 2020.
