Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)


California’s new education funding model, the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), is a major reform in the way public school districts receive money from the state. Previously school districts received a significant portion of money without restrictions, but much of the funding was restricted to specific programs, called categorical programs. Some examples of these categorical programs included textbook funds and the Regional Occupation Program for high school students. There were dozens of state categorical programs that were eliminated when the LCFF went into effect in July 2013.

Under LCFF, the responsibility for allocating funds to meet students’ needs is given to local governing boards. To demonstrate how funds will be used to address eight priorities established by the state, school districts must develop and approve a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) no later than July 1. This three-year plan is to be updated annually. Once approved by the Board of Education, the LCAP will be the basis for expenditures in the District budget for a three year period.

The eight state priorities that Redondo Beach Unified School District will include in the LCAP include the following:
  • Student Achievement
  • Student Engagement
  • Other Student Outcomes
  • School Climate
  • Parental Involvement
  • Basic Services
  • Implementation of the Common Core Standards
  • Course Access

The District has consulted with stakeholder groups, including RBUSD's Board of Education, School Site Councils, parent advisory groups, students, administrators and each of the school district’s employee associations (RBTA and CSEA). A draft of the plan was brought to the Board of Education for a public hearing on June 12, 2018. At that time, there was an opportunity to respond to questions and comments about the plan. Revisions were made as a result of the public hearing feedback. The Board of Education approved the LCAP along with the 2018-19 District budget on June 26, 2018. The Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) reviewed and approved the RBUSD LCAP for the fiscal year 2018-19 on August 17, 2018.

This section of the District website is designed to keep parents, staff, and community members informed about the LCFF and LCAP.

A public hearing was held at the June 12, 2018 Board of Education meeting, 6:30pm at the District Office (1401 Inglewood Avenue in Redondo Beach).

The RBUSD Board of Education approved the final draft of the LCAP on June 26, 2018.  The Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) reviewed and approved the RBUSD LCAP for the fiscal year 2018-19 on August 17, 2018.
