Introduction to Local Control and Accountability

AUSD wants your input on the Local Control Accountability Plan

 

California's Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) provides greater flexibility to Districts to use funds to improve student outcomes.  LCFF allocates funding for all students and additional funding for English learners, foster youth, and students identified as socio-economically disadvantaged.

An important component of LCFF is the development of the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).The LCAP is a planning and accountability tool that highlights the district’s goals, actions and services, and expenditures within a fixed three-year planning cycle.  In developing the LCAP, Districts must implement activities to address the following state priorities: basic services; implementation of state standards; parent involvement; pupil achievement; pupil engagement; school climate; and ourse Access; and other pupil outcomes.

Albany Unified School District’s LCAP is aligned with the three goals of the District’s Strategic Plan:

  1. Assess and Increase Academic Success.  
  2. Support the Whole Child.
  3. Communicate and Lead Together.
 Stakeholder Engagement

The District is currently gathering input from parents, teachers, students and community members to inform the development of the LCAP.  In addition to scheduled meetings with stakeholder groups, input will be gathered through ThoughtExchange.  The exchange will remain open until April 30, 2021.

Thank you for your commitment to the students of Albany Unified School District!
