LEARNING CONTINUITY AND ATTENDANCE PLAN
Senate Bill (SB) 98 established that the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) and Annual Update are not required for the 2020/2021 school year and that the California Department of Education (CDE) shall not publish the California School Dashboard in December 2020 based on performance data on the state and local indicators. SB 98 supersedes the requirement to develop and adopt an LCAP by December 15, 2020, which was established by Executive Order N-56-20, which was published in April 2020.

The COVID-19 Operations Written Report must be adopted with the FSD budget which is due on or before July 1, 2020. The FSD Board of Trustees approved the FSD COVID19 Written Operations Report (linked here) on June 23, 2020.
Local Control Accountability Plan
The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) and Annual Update for 2020/2021 has been suspended due to the COVID 19 pandemic. Once the California Department of Education reinstates the LCAP requirements, the district will reconvene our the LCAP Stakeholder Committee to provide input into the next three-year LCAP. The LCAP and will be presented to the Board of Trustees by the LCAP Stakeholder Committee members during the regular School Board Meeting in May for their review. The timeline for the LCAP School Board approval timeline is as follows:
TBD – Presentation to the Board / LCAP Stakeholders Committee Members
TBD – Public Hearing / Local Control Accountability / Annual Update
TBD – Approval of Local Control Accountability Plan / Annual Update
The LCAP Stakeholder Advisory Committee meets during the months of November, January, February, and April to review the FSD LCAP and Annual Update. The Committee reviews the FSD LCAP Goals, Actions and Services to support the Goals, and the metrics to measure student achievement as well the Annual Update. The LCAP Stakeholder Committee members are from district organizations and departments listed in the LCAP brochure.

The feedback will be reviewed and incorporated into the FSD LCAP draft, as appropriate, and the Superintendent, Dr. Robert Pletka, will provide written answers to individuals with questions.
