Local Control Accountability Plans for several charter schools and Vacaville Unified School District, the district’s 2015-16 budget, and a resolution to issue $40 million in Measure A bonds are on the agenda when trustees meet tonight in Vacaville.
The seven-member governing board will hear LCAPs for ACE and Fairmont elementaries and Buckingham High, all dependent charter schools, and the district itself.
The plans are a key part of Brown’s Local Control Funding Formula. An LCAP is, essentially, the master plan that governs all district spending. Comprised of several “priority areas,” from course access to parental involvement, it describes for the public how educators will meet annual goals for all students and “identified subgroups,” such as ethnic minorities and special needs students, and how their progress will be measured.
