LCAP Community Input


On Wednesday, June 4th at 7:30pm, the MDUSD Board of Education will be discussing the first draft of the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). Beginning in the current school year (2013-14) the state of California is changing the way school districts are funded.  The new model, called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), allows districts more freedom in how funds are spent but also requires the development of a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) that links spending to specific district goals for student achievement.  Districts will now be held accountable to the specific ways in which they are spending money and how those decisions are improving student outcomes.

A key aspect of the LCAP process is the engagement of parents/guardians and other community stakeholders in providing input and feedback.  Districts are required to form an English Learner Parent Advisory Committee and a Parent Advisory Committee.  MDUSD’s already established District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) is representing English Learner (EL) students and families as the LCAP is being developed, in lieu of forming a new ELPAC (English Learning Parent Advisory Committee), as allowed for in the related Ed Code.  A Parent Advisory Council will support MDUSD with the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).  All California school districts are required to develop a three year plan that identifies strategies to support learning and shows how our district uses its resources to support students. 

From January through May over 18 meetings were held to collect input from parents, students, staff, Board committees, and community groups.  An LCAP Focus Group worked to take the information collected from those meetings and develop the Goals and Actions reflected in the draft plan. On May 22, 2014 the new Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) joined with the existing DELAC to provide feedback on the three-year plan now required of all school districts in California.

The draft LCAP is the result of several months of community input; the June 4th Board Meeting includes a public hearing on the document. The final LCAP will be presented to the board for consideration at the June 25th Board meeting.

Do you have comments about the LCAP?  If so, please send your questions or comments on the LCAP draft to the Superintendent by using an email address set up just for this purpose. Please email your comments to LCAP@mdusd.org by 4:00pm on Friday, June 13, 2014.

MDUSD LCAP DRAFT JUNE 2014 (b) 

We found an editing issue that was making it difficult to match the funds with the actions.  The issue has been corrected in this version of the draft.

This is a shortened version of the draft LCAP.  It contains the needs, goals, outcomes, actions, and glossary, but does not include the budget information or the rest of the attachments.  This is available as an assist to the community since the CDE required template is not easy to work with.
