LCAP Update

Under California’s new funding model, parents have a say. The SFUSD
Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) provides a unique opportunity to create powerful partnerships between families and district leaders, educators and staff.
State regulations require all districts to intentionally engage parents in the development of their LCAP. 

The LCAP community engagement campaign is a collaborative process between district staff and its stakeholders, such as advisory groups, labor partners, students and community-based organizations.  Read more about what has been accomplished and how you can participate in the future:
