Item Title:Distance Learning Update: Update on Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan Including Student Progress in Remote, Flex, and Special Education Programs (20 Mins/Information)
Item Type:Information

The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (Learning Continuity Plan) is a key part of the overall budget package for K-12 that seeks to address funding stability for schools while providing information at the local educational agency (LEA) level for how student learning continuity will be addressed during the COVID-19 crisis in the 2020–21 school year. The provisions for the plan were approved by the Governor and Legislature in June in SB 98 and can be found in EC Section 43509.


The LCAP is a three-year plan that describes the goals, actions, services, and expenditures to support positive student outcomes that address state and local priorities. The LCAP provides an opportunity for local educational agencies (LEAs) to share their stories of how, what, and why programs and services are selected to meet their local needs.


In tonight's presentation staff will:


  • Review how Strategic Planning connects School Site Plans, LCAP, and other District plans

  • Review the purpose of the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCP)

  • Discuss the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) and Review the purpose

  • Review LCAP Timeline

  • Review Engagement Process for crafting new LCAP 

  • Review current data and connection to LCP and LCAP

  • Review data to understand the progress on the LCP and planning for the new LCAP


The LCAP three year cycle ended last year and a new LCAP was meant to be drafted and approved in June 2020. Responding to COVID-19 required the state to pause the new LCAP and instead asked Local Education Agencies to craft the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCP). The new LCAP cycle will begin now, with the final document due to the state in June of 2021.
