Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

School Community Forums

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. 

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 funding formula.  The District's LCAP is written and developed with input from our educational partners.  Our educational partners have been asked to provide input on the State's eight priority areas for the education of our students.
