Local Control and Accountability Plan
Welcome to the Huntington Beach City School District LCAP page!
These are exciting times in education with changes being made to curriculum, instruction, funding, and assessment. In this space, we will provide updates of our District Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).
The LCAP is a result of the passage of Proposition 30 (2012) and AB97, with California Governor Jerry Brown significantly changing school finance laws. These changes provide all stakeholders in a school district – the students, parents, community members, teachers, staff members, and administrators – with the opportunity and obligation under law to assist school districts in the development, monitoring, and tracking of local priorities for expenditures.
Each district also will receive additional funding to provide additional services for subgroups of students who may require additional resources. These subgroups include children from low-income backgrounds, English Learners, foster youth, and students with exceptional needs. HBCSD will not be receiving significant increases in funding, but our commitment to the education of all students remains a cornerstone and elements addressing the needs of these subgroups are included to reflect that Shared Value.
In 2018, the federal government began requiring districts to complete a new requirement that, in combination with the LCAP and Consolidated Application, replaces the previous Local Educational Agency Plan and Title III Plans that were required under No Child Left Behind. This new document is called the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) Every Student Succeeds Acts (ESSA) Federal Addendum.
This page will continue to be updated with news and updates of our LCAP process.
