Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) Survey


中国版本

Under California’s new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) law, school districts are required to develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (or LCAP). Your feedback in the development of the LCAP is essential. To make sure we get as much parent, student, and staff feedback as possible, we have created an online survey that we hope you will take the time to complete.
