LCAP & District Plans

In 2013, the state of California adopted a new formula for funding public education called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).  As part of the LCFF requirements, school districts must develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year plan called the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP describes goals, actions, services, and expenditures that meet state and local priorities in serving students.

Stakeholder input is a key feature of LCFF. All parent and community stakeholders are invited to provide valuable feedback on the 2021-2022 LCAP draft.  HBCSD held two LCAP Community Forums during the months of March and May. At the community forums, we reviewed the HBCSD LCAP,  Annual Update, revised Goals, Actions and Services, and the new LCFF Budget Overview for Parents Form. Thank you to those community members that attended the LCAP Community Forums during the 2020-2021 school year.

Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCAP)

Senate Bill 98 (SB 98) established the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (Learning Continuity Plan), which is intended to balance the needs of all stakeholders while streamlining meaningful stakeholder engagement and condensing several preexisting plans. This is a new report that is required from all school districts, combining the intent behind Executive Order N- 56-20, which extended the deadline for the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), and the ongoing need for districts to formally plan for the 2020–21 school year. The Learning Continuity Plan was adopted by the governing Board of the school district on September 22, 2020. HBCSD submitted the Learning Continuity Plan to the county office of education on September 15, 2020. Should the county have recommendations for a district’s plan, our Board will be provided those recommendations and consider them for plan revisions.

The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan include descriptions of the following: addressing gaps in learning; conducting meaningful stakeholder engagement; maintaining transparency; addressing the needs of unduplicated pupils, students with unique needs, students experiencing homelessness; providing access to necessary devices and connectivity for distance learning; providing resources and supports to address student and staff mental health and social-emotional well-being; and continuing to provide school meals for students.
