LBUSD seeks stakeholder input for Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) Survey

On Dec 1, the Laguna Beach Unified School District, in partnership with Hanover Research, will begin administration of the 2017-18 Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) Survey to gather feedback on the implementation of the district goals and state priorities. 

This survey is designed to assess stakeholders’ perceptions of progress towards the district’s goals within the areas of student achievement, instructional support, college and career readiness, professional development, learning environment, and stakeholder engagement.

“Stakeholder input is critical in this process,” said Amy Kernan, director of assessment and accountability. “We are seeking participation from students, parents, staff and community members to ensure we are making progress.”

Survey takes 25 minutes to complete and will be open until Dec 15

The Local Control Accountability Plan is a component of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). Under the LCFF, all local educational agencies prepare an LCAP, which describes how districts intend to meet annual goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities.

In 2014, Laguna Beach Unified developed an LCAP process to meet both requirements from the state and the expectations of the district’s stakeholders. This developed into an ongoing process for growth that includes the district’s vision, mission, and annual goals. Stakeholder input is vital to the development of data-informed goals and the evaluation of outcomes.
