Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)


LCAP Overview

The LCAP is an important component of the LCFF. Under the LCFF all LEAs are required to prepare an LCAP, which describes how they intend to meet annual goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities identified pursuant to EC Section 52060(d).

A requirement in the development of the LCAP is to solicit input from parents, teachers, students, local bargaining units, staff and other community members in regard to what they think which goals would be most effective for implementation in schools toward reaching state priorities.

EC sections 52060 and 52066 specify that the LCAP must include a description of the annual goals to be achieved for each student group for each state priority. Goals must address each of the state priorities and any additional local priorities; however, one goal may address multiple priorities. An LEA may identify which school sites and subgroups have the same goals, and group and describe those goals together. If a single goal requires longer than one year to implement fully, the LCAP should reflect the annual incremental actions, services, and expenditures, as well as the annual anticipated progress, that the district expects to achieve for each student group. These annual benchmarks will assist LEAs and the community to monitor the progress of the plan.

As noted above, there are eight state priority areas for which school districts, with parent and community input, must establish goals and actions:

  1. Providing all students access to fully credentialed teachers, instructional materials that align with state standards, and safe facilities.
  2. Implementation of California’s academic standards, including the Common Core State Standards in English language arts and math, Next Generation Science Standards, English language development, history social science, visual and performing arts, health education and physical education standards.
  3. Parent involvement and participation, so the local community is engaged in the decision-making process and the educational programs of students.
  4. Improving student achievement and outcomes along multiple measures, including test scores, English proficiency and college and career preparedness.
  5. Supporting student engagement, including whether students attend school or are chronically absent.
  6. Highlighting school climate and connectedness through a variety of factors, such as suspension and expulsion rates and other locally identified means.
  7. Ensuring all students have access to classes that prepare them for college and careers, regardless of what school they attend or where they live.
  8. Measuring other important student outcomes related to required areas of study, including physical education and the arts.

There are two additional priority areas required to be addressed by County Schools Offices:

Expelled pupils (for county offices of education only): coordination of instruction of expelled pupils pursuant to Education Code section 48926. (Priority 9)

Foster youth (for county offices of education only): coordination of services, including working with the county child welfare agency to share information, responding to the needs of the juvenile court system, and ensuring transfer of health and education records. (Priority 10)


The 2021-22 TCSOS LCAP has six goals; four broad goals and two maintenance goals.

Goal 1: Provide social emotional support and timely interventions to all students in order to develop mental health, communication, and conflict resolution skills, and strengthen student resiliency.

Goal 2: Provide training to all staff in tiered interventions, including Positive Behavior Intervention Support, inclusion, and trauma informed practices in order to create a positive school climate and improve student attendance and achievement.

Goal 3: Provide engaging, standards-aligned curriculum, instruction, and access to technology; develop college and career readiness skills, and increase opportunities for students to enroll in CTE, A-G, dual enrollment, and credit recovery courses in order to prepare students for success in college and/or careers. 

Goal 4: Provide increased opportunities for parental involvement and regular communication between parents, staff, districts of residence, and partner agencies, including probation, behavioral health, foster/homeless liaisons, social services, and the community college in order to support educational outcomes for all students. 

Goal 5: Continue to coordinate services for foster youth and homeless youth enrolled in TCSOS programs and all LEAs in Tuolumne County to minimize changes in school placement and ensure delivery of educational services, and provide training for all LEAs in Tuolumne County to support foster youth and homeless youth. 

Goal 6: Continue to coordinate the instruction of expelled pupils in Tuolumne County to prepare them to successfully transition back to their district of residence, other educational options, or graduation. 

Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) regulations require that school districts and county offices of education post their draft revised LCAP for a public comment period prior to the final adoption of the revised document.  Members of the public may submit comments regarding the LCAP revisions by emailing County Superintendent, Cathy Parker.
