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 fourth year, the 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.

California’s accountability and continuous improvement system, although no longer new, is nevertheless in its infancy. While we are in year five of LCAP implementation, the system continues to mature, and 2018-19 will find LEAs adjusting to its continued evolution. The School Services of California, Inc.’s 2018 Accountability in California - The LCAP and So Much More workshop will cover the accountability system from the basics of the LCAP to providing more detailed guidance on how to measure increased and improved services to ensure that LEAs meet their minimum proportionality percentage. The workshop will also focus on the Dashboard and how to translate the results so that an LEA can develop meaningful actions and services through the effective allocation of resources.
