Accountability in California - The LCAP and So Much More

About the Workshop

The State Board of Education continues to develop and refine the state’s  accountability system. Smarter Balanced Assessments are in their third year, the new California School Dashboard (Dashboard) has been implemented, and the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), built upon the guiding principles of subsidiarity and transparency, continues to be the accountability system’s  cornerstone. To be successful under this accountability system,  local educational agencies (LEAs) must meaningfully engage with stakeholders in the thoughtful review of student needs and the development of LCAP goals and actions, be transparent regarding the achievement gaps that exist in their schools, and use the resources provided to ensure that the neediest students are receiving increased and improved services.

With the revised LCAP template and the introduction of the Dashboard, our accountability system continues to evolve and gain public interest, and there are still more changes on the way. In addition to the following workshop topics, School Services of California, Inc.’s 2017 LCAP Workshop will provide attendees with information and guidance on how to integrate the various components of the accountability system so that your LEA is successful in meeting the goal of higher achievement for all students.

  • Use of supplemental and concentration grant funds

Who Should Attend?

School districts, county offices of education, and charter schools are encouraged to send a team, including instructional leaders, human resource professionals, fiscal personnel, and key program staff. The information presented in this workshop will allow you to maximize the flexibility the LCFF provides while working to improve services to your neediest students and close the achievement gap.
