The LCAP (Local Control Accountability Plan) is an important component of the LCFF (Local Control Funding Formula), implemented beginning in 2013-2014. Under the LCFF all LEAs are required to prepare an LCAP, which describes how they intend to meet annual goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities identified pursuant to EC Section 52060(d).  More information can be found here.

On April 23, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom issued Executive Order N-56-20 focused on easing requirements, because of impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, for local educational agencies (LEAs) to complete their Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs) for 2020–21. The Executive Order also foreshadowed further actions to “address future deadlines that are not imminent, including certain requirements related to the California School Dashboard.” Lastly, the Executive Order waived requirements related to physical education for the 2019–20 school year. 

Under the Executive Order, the deadline for an LEA governing body to adopt their LCAP, the annual update, and the budget overview for parents is extended from July 1, 2020 to December 15, 2020. The deadline for a county superintendent to approve the LCAP is extended until January 14, 2021. In addition, the deadline for a charter school to submit the LCAP to its authorizer and the county superintendent of schools is extended to December 15, 2020.
