Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAP) and Other State and Federal Reports


The finance system for K-12 education in the state of California is known as the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) . One of the major components of the LCFF is the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), which is a three-year plan that describes the goals, actions, services, and expenditures to support student outcomes that address local and state priorities.

The 10 state priorities are as follows:

  • • Basic Services
  • • Implementation of State Standards
  • • Parental Involvement
  • • Pupil Achievement
  • • Pupil Engagement
  • • School Climate
  • • Course Access
  • • Other Pupil Outcomes
  • • Expelled Pupils (county offices of education only)
  • • Foster Youth (county offices of education only)

The local priorities are determined through the LCAP process that includes input from the community.

District LCAPs

Under the LCFF, all the local educational agencies in San Joaquin County must create an LCAP which must be reviewed and approved by the San Joaquin County Office of Education (SJCOE).

The LCAPs from San Joaquin County's 14 school districts and more information about district LCAPs can be found on the San Joaquin County K-12 Districts LCAP webpage.


The SJCOE has its own process to engage the community and create LCAPs for SJCOE programs and schools. More information about the process as well as current LCAPs can be found on the SJCOE LCAPs webpage.

Links to LCAPs for independent charter schools authorized by the SJCOE can also be found on the SJCOE LCAPs webpage.

Charter School LCAPs

The charter schools in San Joaquin County have been authorized by a school district or the San Joaquin County Office of Education (SJCOE).

Under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), charter schools in California must also create a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) approved by an independent governing board. All San Joaquin County charter school LCAPs can be found on the Charter School LCAPs webpage.
