Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)

CEEL, in partnership with Californians Together, has led a series of studies to examine how California school districts create and implement Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). As part of California's Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), districts are required to indicate how they are addressing the needs of low-income, special education, English Learner students. These studies investigate to what degree the actions and services in LCAPs demonstrate funding priorities, program development, and stakeholder engagement based on research-based practices for achieving language proficiency and academic achievement of English Learners.
