Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)
REVISED 2019-2020 LCAP- Approved 10-11-19
On June 19, 2019, a public hearing was conducted regarding the District’s 2019-20 LCAP and on June 26, 2019, the LCAP was adopted. The Plan is being brought back with revisions based on feedback from the Los Angeles County Office of Education. The LACOE team worked with IUSD staff to ensure the alignment of the budget with services to students. Additionally, LACOE staff helped identify areas where IUSD needed to better describe how the expenditures of supplemental and concentration grant funds would improve academic outcomes for targeted student groups including English Learners, socio-economically disadvantaged students, homeless and foster youth.
The Inglewood Unified School District Local Control Accountability Plan (IUSD LCAP ) is a district plan that includes goals, actions and funding related to eight (8) required state priorities: 1. Basic Services (teachers, instructional materials, facilities), 2. Implementation of State Standards (in all curricular areas), 3. Parental Involvement (including programs and participation), 4. Pupil Achievement, (for all areas and student groups) 5. Pupil Engagement, (graduation and attendance) 6. School Climate (safety, suspension, and expulsion), 7. Course Access (broad course of student for all students), and 8. Pupil Outcomes (health and fitness)
California state law sets out the system for funding public schools. State leaders largely decide how much money is available to schools each year as part of the state budget process. In 2013, California adopted a new formula for deciding how much money each school district gets, called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). School districts will decide how to use the funds, but under the new system, they must get input from their local communities, parents, students, teachers, administrators, and staff. They also have to tie their budgets to improvement goals by creating a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).
