The Board of Trustees of the Benicia Unified School District last week approved a document that went through several iterations and multiple stages of planning — par for the course for an important document like the Local Control Accountability Plan.
After months of input, workshops, planning, meetings and a public hearing, the LCAP was approved on a 4-0 vote with Trustee Andre Stewart absent at trustees’ final meeting of the 2013-14 school year.
The LCAP is part of the BUSD budget process and includes three sections: student outcomes, student and parent engagement, and conditions of learning. It is required to be in place for the district to receive state Local Control Funding Formula LCCF funding.
