The LCAP is an ambitious document created from the input of the Laguna Beach USD community and the touchstone by which we guide and execute our efforts to educate children. It is comprised of goals that focus District practices and resources to ensure students are college and career ready upon graduation. The LCAP shows the alignment of LBUSD curriculum, instruction, assessment, and interventions with the eight State priorities. All stakeholders understand how the LCAP is constructed, how it reflects the District vision and mission, and the importance of ensuring fidelity to the goals. This document meets both the requirements of the state and the expectations of the District's stakeholders. The LCAP is a significant change in how school district funding priorities have been set, for the first time mandating significant engagement of stakeholders and demanding specific accountability for the effectiveness of the adopted strategies.
The Local Control Accountability Plan is a component of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). Under the LCFF, all local educational agencies are required to prepare an LCAP, which describes how districts intend to meet annual goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities.
On June 11, 2019, a Public Hearing was held regarding the submission of the 2019-2022 LCAP. On June 25, 2019, the LCAP was submitted to the LBUSD Governing Board and was approved.
The Laguna Beach Unified School District thanks the community for its efforts in the development of this Local Control Accountability Plan.
