San Marino Unified School District

Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)

Overview: Under the Local Control Funding Formula, enacted as part of the 2013-14 State Budget, school districts are required to develop and approve a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP describes the District’s goals, actions and services, and expenditures for the planned years. It describes how the District's General Fund, including LCFF, federal, other state, and local revenues, will be used to support all students, specifically those students who qualify for English learning, free and reduced lunch and foster youth.  Public hearings on the District's LCAP will be held on June 12, 2018, and June 26, 2018, as part of the Board of Education meetings, held at the District Office, 1665 West Drive, San Marino, CA 91108. The meetings begin at 7:30 p.m.

State Priorities: The California State Board of Education established eight "State Priorities" in order to guide public school districts in developing their LCAP goals, actions, and services.

  1. Basic Services: Providing all students access to fully credentialed teachers, instructional materials that align with state standards, and safe facilities.
  2. Implementation of State Standards: Implementation of California’s academic standards, including the Common Core  State Standards in English language arts and math, Next Generation Science Standards, English language development, history-social science, visual and performing arts, health education, and physical education standards.
  3. Parental Involvement: Parent involvement and participation, so the local community is engaged in the decision-making process and the educational programs of students.
  4. Pupil Achievement: Improving student achievement and outcomes along multiple measures, including test scores, English proficiency and college and career preparedness.
  5. Pupil Engagement: Supporting student engagement, including whether students attend school or are chronically absent.
  6. School Climate: Highlighting school climate and connectedness through a variety of factors, such as suspension and expulsion rates and other locally identified means.
  7. Course Access: Ensuring all students have access to classes that prepare them for college and careers, regardless of what school they attend or where they live.
  8. Other Outcomes: Measuring other important student outcomes related to required areas of study, including physical education, and the arts.

In addition to the State Priorities, school districts may identify and incorporate local priorities in their LCAP plans.  The LCAP development process provides opportunities for parents, teachers, staff, students, and the community to provide input and feedback. 

LCAP Parent Advisory Committee (PAC): The San Marino Unified School District Governing Board established the LCAP Parent Advisory Committee to provide for meaningful engagement of parents and other stakeholders in the District's LCAP development and update process.  The LCAP Parent Advisory Committee represents all school sites, including students qualifying for free and reduced-price meals, English learners, and foster youth.

These surveys are part of the comprehensive California School Climate, Health, and Learning Survey (Cal-SCHLS) System. Learn more about Cal-SCHLS.

Meetings with Stakeholder Groups: The District Superintendent, the LCAP Coordinator, and District administrators met with parent and community groups, bargaining units, DELAC and ELAC committees, throughout the year to review, discuss and solicit feedback on the District's goals, actions and services.
