Local Control and Accountability Plan

Local Control Advisory Committee (LCAC)

Pleasanton Unified School District has a Local Control Advisory Committee (LCAC).  The Advisory Committee members’ responsibility is to advise the Board and the Superintendent about supporting the District Strategic Plan with resources from our Local Control Funding Formula.

Additionally, at least three community members will be selected representing one or more of the following areas:

  • Low Income
  • Foster/Kinship Youth
  • English Learners

• Eight Community Members (Community members are not to be employees or members
  of the immediate family of PUSD employees or Board Members.)

2021-2024 Local Control and Accountability Plan
  • Under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) model, supplemental grants that reflect student demographic factors will be provided to Districts to support targeted student groups.
  • To ensure that the District budget is aligned with the priorities of the State for these supplemental funds, a plan called the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is required.
  • The LCAP must include Specific Actions with a Description of Expenditures and must be adopted annually by the Board of Trustees prior to the adoption of the District budget.
Goal 1: Leverage personalized learning strategies and growth-based assessments to increase achievement and identify opportunity gaps

Goal 2: Strengthen intervention and support structures to effectively improve the physical, mental and social wellness of students, families, and staff
