Local Control Accountability Plan (LCaP)
We want to thank the parents, students and staff of the SMJUSD community who took the time to participate in our on-line surveys and meetings (Stakeholders, SSC, PTO, DELAC and Board meetings) regarding the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).
The LCAP is an important component of the LCFF. Under the LCFF all LEAs [districts] 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).
The Public Hearing was held on June 2, 2016, and the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) was approved by the Governing Board at their June 16, 2016, meeting. The LCAP has been submitted for review by the San Luis Obispo County Office of Education for final approval.

The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)
- Requires school districts to involve parents in planning and decision making
- Shifts spending decisions from the state to the local school district
- Requires school districts to focus on the eight key areas that help all students succeed
- Provides extra funding for students with greater challenges
West Ed, A resource of the State Board of Education explains LCFF as:
California’s 2013-14 Budget Act included landmark legislation that greatly simplifies the state’s school finance system. The changes introduced by the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) represent a major shift in how California funds Local Educational Agencies (LEAs). For nearly 40 years, California has relied on a system that included general purpose funding (known as revenue limits) and more than 50 tightly defined categorical programs to provide state funding to LEAs. Under LCFF, California funds school districts, charter schools, and county offices of education equally per student with adjustments based on grade levels and demographic characteristics. LCFF replaces complexity in favor of equity, transparency, and performance.
