A draft of the Local Control Accountability Plan, used for measuring the progress of Benicia’s schools, will be reviewed Thursday by trustees.
The board also will consider an annual “declaration of need” for fully qualified educators, and a reduction in some school services.
The LCAP must be in place for a school district to receive Local Control Funding Formula LCCF monies from the state. Through the LCCF, funds have been rolled into a base funding per student, plus a supplemental grant add-on for English learners, socioeconomically needy students and foster youth.
The LCCF provides about $6,321 per student, and the funding is based on attendance of the students, not just enrollment.
