WHAT IS THE LCAP?
The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a three-year strategic plan that reflects engagement from parents, teachers, students and other stakeholders. Each year stakeholders have opportunities to provide input on how the district should use the state funding allocated through the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) to support the success of all students in the district.
The LCAP requires that the district identify goals, explain what actions and services we will provide to meet those goals, and report the estimated and final expenditures associated with these actions and services. In addition, the LCAP identifies how the district will measure annual progress toward these actions and services and what outcomes we expect to see over three years. The final LCAP is posted to the FSD website and each year FSD must submit an Annual Update to report progress on LCAP goals.

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.
