Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
The LCAP is an important component of the Local Control Funding Formula ( LCFF). Under the LCFF, all Local Educational Agencies (LEA) 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).
ESSER III Expenditure Plan
Under the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act, school districts received additional relief funds referred to as ‘ESSER III’ funds and are required to develop a plan for how they will use these funds.
KCUSD has developed a plan for the use of its ESSER III funding aligned to the goals and actions from the district’s 2021-22 Local Control and Accountability Plan, 2021 Expanded Learning Opportunities Grant Plan, and 2020-21 Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan.
Learning Continuity Plan
The Learning Continuity Plan is a key part of the overall budget package for K–12 that seeks to address funding stability for schools while providing information at the LEA level for how student learning continuity will be addressed in light of the COVID-19 crisis in the 2020–21 school year. The provisions for the plan were approved by the Governor and Legislature in June in SB 98 and can be found in EC Section 43509.
