It is a three-year, district-level plan that is updated annually. At GUSD, we call this plan our “Roadmap to Success.”

     

    The LCAP plan describes our school district’s:

     

    • Key goals for students

    • Specific actions we will take to achieve these goals

    • Ways we will use to measure progress

    • Spending plan aligned to our key goals

     

    The LCAP addresses the needs of all students, including specific student groups. All districts must specifically address English learners, foster youth, and low-income students. In addition, the LCAP must address the state of California's eight priority areas that include student academic achievement, school climate, student access to a broad curriculum, and parent engagement. School districts may also identify their own local priorities. The district’s spending plan aligns to these academic priorities.
