Local Control and Accountability Plan

2017-2020 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.
LCAP Goals 2017-2020
1. All students, regardless of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or gender will be proficient/advanced and college/career ready upon graduation.
2. We will optimize student learning by utilizing innovative technologies.
3. Every student will feel safe, respected, and enjoy positive connections.
4. All certificated and classified instructional staff will have opportunities to receive training and support in order to deliver high-quality instruction and progress toward full implementation of the California State Standards.
5. Parents/Guardians will develop a deeper understanding of the educational system and the decision making process of the Local Control and Accountability Plan so that they can provide support for their children as they learn the standards of the 21st Century classroom.

Pleasanton Unified School District Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan

On June 29, 2020, Governor Newsom signed Senate Bill 98 (SB 98) into law. Though SB 98 is a budget bill, it includes requirements regarding distance learning and in-person instruction, among other topics, for the 2020-2021 school year. This CNB addresses distance learning, Senate Bill 98 suspends the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) with the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCP).  The LCP has seven parts:

  1. General Information
  2. Stakeholder Engagement
  3. In-Person Instructional Offerings
  4. Distance Learning Program
  5. Pupil Learning Loss
  6. Additional Actions to Implement the Learning Continuity Plan:
    1. Mental Health and Social and Emotional Well-Being
    2. Pupil Engagement and Outreach
    3. School Nutrition
  7. Increased or Improved Service
On September 24, 2020 the Pleasanton USD Board of Trustees approved the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan for PUSD.  The approved plan was then submitted prior to September 30 to the Alameda County Office of Education for review. On October 22 Board President Maher and Superintendent Haglund received notification that the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan has been reviewed and has addressed all of the required elements. Therefore no further action is required to bring the plan into alignment with CDE expectations.
