Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
Thank you to the many parents, staff, and community partners who participated over the last few months in our LCAP Engagements. Your feedback on our current strategies and suggestions going forward have proved invaluable to efforts to improve our LCAP work!
As promised, we are posting the feedback that we received at our engagements; you will see notes from each engagement.
Here’s how to “read” the notes:
- Remember that we broke up into Literacy, Math, and Wellness groups. For each engagement, you will see each group’s suggested strategies. Scroll down to see all 3 groups.
- In the notes, the 1st column is a record of the strategies the group brainstormed but then did not prioritize.
- The 2nd column is a record of the strategies the group did prioritize (with sticky dots).
- The 3rd column is the response of District leadership to those prioritized strategies. Typically the District response was to re-write the suggestion in “LCAP language” that we will then consider for the upcoming 19-20 LCAP draft.

We encourage you also to attend Board of Education meetings in May and June where the draft and then final 19-20 LCAP will be reviewed. The community is invited to provide additional feedback in those meetings.
The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a critical part of California’s Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). It is a three-year, district-level plan that is updated annually. The plan describes the school district’s key goals for students as well as the specific actions (with expenditures) the district will take to achieve the goals and the means (metrics) used to measure progress.
The LCAP addresses the needs of all students, including specific student groups, and all districts must specifically address English learners, foster youth, and low-income students. In addition, the LCAP must address the state of California's eight priority areas that include student academic achievement, school climate, student access to a broad curriculum, and parent engagement. It is aligned with the goals of the District's Strategic Plan.

LCAP Priority Stakeholder Survey Results 2016-2017
Thank you to all of our San Mateo-Foster City School District stakeholders, including staff, parents and community members for taking the time to complete our first district-wide LCAP Priority Survey. This survey provided information to sites, leadership teams, administration, and the Board of Trustees to help influence what actions and services will be defined in the LCAP, and inform choices about LCFF fund allocation. Our LCAP is an important part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) process. The LCAP is where our district articulates our goals, needs, actions, and expenditures, as well as how we will measure our progress toward meeting those goals. Stakeholder input is a critical part of an effective, applicable LCAP.
