Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)
What is the Local Control and Accountability Plan?
California has developed a new system for funding public schools. The Local Control Funding Formula or LCFF and the Evergreen School District Local Education Agency Plan or LEAP represent a significant change in the way California schools are funded. As part of this change in school funding, Districts are now required to develop a visionary plan that describes an overall vision for students and sets annual goals and specific actions that a district will take to achieve this goal and vision. This plan is called the Local Control and Accountability Plan or LCAP. As part of the LCAP, Evergreen School District will involve and engage parents, students, educators, employees and the community in a variety of ways.
Evergreen School District’s LCAP will focus on eight areas identified as state priorities as well as our identified Strategic Plan Goals. Our plan will also demonstrate how the district’s budget will help achieve the goals, and assess each year how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes.

What are the five District priority areas that will be addressed in the plan?
While the Local Control and Accountability plan is a 3-year plan, school districts are required to solicit input and review the plan on a yearly basis. As part of our 2018 update we are facilitating a district-wide survey, in person community consultation, and a webinar. These consultations solicited feedback about our programs, services and needs from students, parents, community members and staff.
In late January/early February community stakeholders will have the opportunity to respond to a survey asking for feedback around District strategic goals as they related to the eight LCAP priorities. The survey will be administered in English, Spanish and Vietnamese.
After a presentation about LCAP development, district goals and budget, participants are asked to share feedback around the following prompts:
Superintendent Gomez and Assistant Superintendent Deguara will share a draft of the Updated LCAP actions and services with the District English Language Advisory Committee and District Advisory Committee on February 28, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. in the Evergreen School District Teacher Center (3188 Quimby Road).
