Local Control and Accountability Plan

  • What is the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)?

    School districts are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). According to Education Code section 52060, the LCAP must describe the annual goals for all students, including calling out details for low-income, English learners and foster youth that address state and local priorities. The LCAP must also describe the specific actions that the district will take to achieve the goals it has identified with budget details that show the level and type of state and federal expenditures made to support these actions. Our 5 LCAP goals and actions are aligned with our District Leadership Goals, our LEA Plan goals and our Title III Plan goals and actions. 

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

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

    Sunnyvale LCAP Goals

    Five goals have been identified for focus within the next three years to improve outcomes for all students. This plan reflects our commitment to carry out our work through three lenses: equity, a multi-tiered system of support, and recovery, renewal, and re-imagining to improve the effectiveness of instruction and student support.

    GOAL 1: Ensure all students have access to equitable conditions of learning by providing and investing in highly qualified staff, well-maintained facilities, and equipment, as well as robust standards-aligned instructional materials and resources.

    GOAL 2: Provide high-quality, equitable, and responsive instruction for ALL students, to prepare them for college and/or career readiness.

    GOAL 3: Ensure school and classroom environments provide Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT) for the Whole Child so that students can reach their full academic potential.

    GOAL 4: Foster a welcoming and inclusive environment for all parents, families, and community stakeholders as partners in the education and support of all students' success in school.

    GOAL 5: Accelerate learning outcomes for English Language Learners, as measured by local benchmark and state assessments, as well as an increase in the district reclassification rate.
