Local Control Accountability Plan

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.

LCAP 2019-20


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.

Due to the uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Executive Order N-56-20 was established. This order extended the deadline for the adoption of the 2020-21 LCAP from July 1, 2020, to December 15, 2020. The order requires that all local education agencies complete a written report to explain the changes to program offerings the local education agency has made in response to school closures. Santa Cruz City School's report was presented to and adopted by the Board of Trustees on June 24, 2020. You can find a copy of the report below.
