Under California’s new public education funding rules, school districts are required to adopt a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) that describes the actions, services and expenditures that support student growth. The LCAP clarifies how programs/services will be measurably improved in quantity or quality, as a result of proportionate increases in funding for all students as well as state identified subgroups including students designated as low income, Foster Youth, English Learners and Students with Disabilities.
In building the three-year plan, school districts must seek ideas and input from parents, staff, students and other stakeholders. Over the past school year, the District and schools have been engaging EGUSD’s community in this process. Based on input from many stakeholders, EGUSD has developed a draft LCAP that has been posted on our EGUSD LCFF/LCAP website at http://blogs.egusd.net/lcff-lcap.
The District is asking stakeholders to review this draft plan and provide comments. You can find an online comments section at http://blogs.egusd.net/lcff-lcap/comments.
For parents who do not have access to the Internet, you can ask for a printed copy of the EGUSD draft LCAP plan and a printed comment card in the school office. Thank you for your support of the Elk Grove Unified School District.
The Elk Grove Unified School District is committed to ensuring that our staff, parents and students understand the changes taking place with the Common Core State Standards. To further these efforts, the District has developed the newsletter “Getting to the Core of the Matter.” Please click on the links below to read Getting to the Core of the Matter Volume 4.

In June of 2013, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law one of the most significant changes to the way California’s school districts are funded. This new system – the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) – changes the way the State of California allocates funds to school districts. The LCFF provides base funding for all students as well as supplemental and concentration funding to support students from low income families, English Learners and foster youth. The LCFF went into effect as of July 1, 2013.
Under the new funding rules, school districts are required to adopt a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) that describes the actions, services and expenditures that support student growth. The LCAP clarifies how programs/services will be measurably improved in quantity or quality, proportionate to the increase in funding. It also requires the engagement of parents, staff, students and other stakeholders in the building of the LCAP. The LCAP is a three year plan that must be adopted by July 1, 2014, and updated each year.
EGUSD LCAP Survey
EGUSD is in the process of building the LCAP. To help the District in this process, a LCAP survey has been created. To take the online survey, visit http://blogs.egusd.net/lcff-lcap/survey/
