Our school board members approved WCCUSD’s Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) for the upcoming 2017-18 school year. Check out the district’s live Tweets of important moments from the board meeting.
Why does it matter? LCAP is an annual school district plan that directly impacts our students’ progress and success. Districts must create the LCAP with input from families, educators, employees, and the wider community. LCAP describes the overall vision for students, annual goals, and specific actions / services planned to meet goals.
Our community’s historically underserved students (like English Learners, foster youth, low-income students) deserve a quality education that prepares them for success in college, career, and life. Based on enrollment rates of these student groups, our state provides districts with extra funds each year. The LCAP is important because it requires districts to show how the extra money is used to improve all of our students’ outcomes.

You’ll see how funds are spent to meet WCCUSD’s overall goals and details like:
- How do individual school sites receive funding?
- How and which student groups are served by what actions?
- How will success will be measured by the end of the 2017-18 school year?
- How are specific programs like Career Pathways / Academies, Full Day Kindergarten, Assistant Principals, Dual Immersion, English Language Learner, etc. funded?

As a living document, the LCAP will continue to be edited and updated. Like any plan, the LCAP is only as strong as its implementation and monitoring. We are excited to support district leaders and community members to assess the effectiveness of strategies / actions outlined in our LCAP and adjust as needed to best support students.
