On June 24, 2015, the LCAP was approved by the Board of Trustees.
The LCAP is a 3 year plan that begins with stakeholder engagement that identifies needs for all students.
The plan is set up to utilize data and measurable student outcomes, as aligned with the state’s priorities, which includes specific actions and services supported with district resources, with special emphasis on the student’s needs.
On June 15, 2016, an LCAP/LCFF presentation was given at the School Board Meeting.
The presentation outlines how LCFF and LCAP work, the Big Picture, Budget Development, and Reflections and Feedback.
LCAP Stakeholder Engagement Meetings
The 2016 Pittsburg Unified School District LCAP Stakeholder Engagement meetings were a huge success! Over the course of 16 weeks, nearly 300 Pittsburg community members, parents, and students provided input on the district goals and objectives of the LCAP.
The Pittsburg Unified School District revisited its Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The purpose of this, was to create a plan that brought greater clarity and focus around the direction of the school board and the superintendent.
During the month of January, and into the 3rd week of February, the Pittsburg Unified School District hosted seven community meetings, engaging the public in the process, presenting the goals and objectives of the LCAP.
Thank you to all who attended the meetings. The input provided was invaluable and will bring greater clarity and focus around the direction of our LCAP plan.
The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) requires that school districts develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP.) The Local Control Funding Formula represents the most significant change in California’s funding system for K-12 schools in four decades. It is the central feature of landmark legislation— Assembly Bill 97—currently being implemented in every California school district. It will affect every school in the state, including charter schools. This plan describes how the district intends to meet annual goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities, identified to Education Code Section 52060 (d). One goal of this law is to improve academic outcomes by providing more money to school districts that serve high-needs students. Another goal is to give local school districts more authority to decide how to spend education dollars, and hold them accountable for getting results. PUSD has a Budget Sub-Committee
to assist in this process.
After meeting with students, staff, parents/guardians, and community stakeholders, a LCAP Draft was created and presented to district advisory groups. A LCFF Budget Summary is located at the end of the LCAP document. Community members who have questions regarding the document are encouraged to contact their local school site or the Pittsburg District Office at (925) 473-2300.
