2016-2017 Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is an important component of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). Under the LCFF all school districts are required to prepare an LCAP, which describes how they intend to meet annual goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities identified pursuant to EC Section 52060(d).
State law mandates that the final LCAP document needs to be adopted prior to July 1, 2016. The Cupertino Union School District Board of Education held a public hearing for community comment at the regularly scheduled Board Meeting on May 24, 2016 and approved the 2016-17 LCAP at the Board meeting on June 7, 2016.
In an effort to clearly communicate the elements of the LCAP, the District has prepared a 14-page narrative summary to help the public understand the explicit priorities, action steps, and measurable outcomes contained in the LCAP.
In March of 2016, Hanover Research conducted two surveys of staff members’ and parents’ perceptions of initiatives from the Cupertino Union School District (CUSD) Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). These surveys aim to gauge the perceptions of staff and parents regarding curriculum, the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), the integration of technology into learning, and communication between school or district personnel and parents. This report examines key themes from the survey results, disaggregating responses for the two primary respondent groups.
