Sunnyvale School District Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

  • The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a critical part of the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) for California Schools.  

    The LCAP must focus on eight areas identified as state priorities:

    1.      Student Achievement
    2.      Student Engagement
    3.      School Climate
    4.      Course Access
    5.      Parental Involvement
    6.      Implementation of Common Core State Standards
    7.      Basic Services
    8.      Other Student Outcomes


    Sunnyvale LCAP Goals for 2015-18

    As a result of various meetings and conversations with parents, principals, coaches, teacher leaders and district administrators, the Sunnyvale School District arrived at the decision to completely align our LCAP goals with the district leadership goals that are in sync with the eight LCAP priority areas.


    The feedback received from our various stakeholder groups was very helpful in not only the development of our goals but were key in determining increased and improved services for our students. We specifically outlined programs and services that were identified as important by our stakeholders in order for our students to be successful.

Sunnyvale LCAP Goals for 2015-18
1. Deepen student learning through engaging, standards-aligned instruction using meaningful oral and written communication, and the infusion of technology across all content areas.
2. Ensure school and classroom environments provide social-emotional well-being.
3. We will place an increased emphasis on literacy instruction for all students, and specifically for English learners, to further develop student skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening that are the foundation for any creative and purposeful expression in language.
4. Provide research based professional development in English language Arts, Math and Next Generation Science Standards to focus on the instructional shift, depth of knowledge and differentiated instruction required by the Common Core.
5. Promote collaboration, transparency and communication with students, parents, staff and the broader community.
6. Expanded learning opportunities will continue to expand to meet the needs of students at all levels.
7. Increase and deepen parent and community engagement.
