Approved 2020 Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan
title

Senate Bill (SB) 98 established that the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) and an annual update to the LCAP are not required for the 2020–2021 school year and that the California Department of Education (CDE) shall not publish the California School Dashboard in December 2020 based on performance data on the state and local indicators. SB 98 supersedes the requirement to develop and adopt an LCAP by December 15, 2020, which was established by Executive Order N-56-20, and published in April 2020.
 
SB 98 also separates the development and adoption of the Budget Overview for Parents from the development and adoption of the LCAP for the 2020–2021 school year. The legislation also requires that the Budget Overview for Parents be developed and adopted by December 15, 2020. The requirements to hold a separate public hearing and adoption at a public local governing board meeting consistent with California Education Code (EC) Section 52064.1 of the Budget Overview for Parents remains.
 
SB 98 establishes California EC Section 43509 and the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (Learning Continuity Plan) requirements for the 2020–2021 school year.
 
The Learning Continuity Plan (LCP) is intended to balance the needs of all stakeholders, including educators, parents, students, and community members, while both streamlining engagement and condensing several preexisting plans. In particular, it was important to combine (1) the intent behind Executive Order N-56-20, published in April 2020, which envisioned an off cycle Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) due December 15th, and (2) the ongoing need for LEAs to formally plan to return to school in the midst of the uncertainty and of COVID-19, without requiring two plans. The Learning Continuity Plan replaces the LCAP for the 2020–2021 school year.
 
The Learning Continuity Plan adoption timeline of September 30, 2020 is intended to ensure the Learning Continuity Plan is completed in the beginning of the 2020–2021 school year. Additionally, the timeline is intended to allow for communication of decisions that will guide how instruction will occur during the 2020–2021 school year. This includes in-person instruction, according to health guidance, and distance learning, while providing critical opportunities for stakeholder engagement.
 
The Learning Continuity Plan template memorializes the planning process already underway for the 2020–2021 school year and includes descriptions of the following: addressing gaps in learning; conducting meaningful stakeholder engagement; maintaining transparency; addressing the needs of unduplicated pupils, students with unique needs, and students experiencing homelessness; providing access to necessary devices and connectivity for distance learning; providing resources and supports to address student and staff mental health and social emotional well-being; and continuing to provide school meals for students.
 
The Learning Continuity Plan has been reviewed by the LCAP Collaborative Committee on August 20, 2020, and by the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) on August 24, 2020. Comments and questions have been solicited and are being reviewed. The final version of the LCP will be approved by the Woodland Joint Unified School District Board of Trustees by September 30, 2020.

                                                                  COVID-19 Operations Written Report

Executive Order (EO) N-56-20 was established on April 22, 2020, to address the impact of continued school closures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the local educational agencies’ ability to conduct meaningful annual planning, and the ability to meaningfully engage stakeholders in these processes. EO N-56-20 issued timeline and approval waivers for the Local Control and Accountability Plan and Budget Overview for Parents as well as waiving certain budgetary requirements.
The Executive Order also established the requirement that a local educational agency (LEA) adopt a written report (COVID-19 Operations Written Report) explaining to its community the changes to program offerings the LEA has made in response to school closures to address the COVID-19 emergency and the major impacts of such closures on students and families.
The COVID-19 Operations Written Report was adopted by the WJUSD Board of Trustees  in conjunction with the adopted annual budget on June 25, 2020.

Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

Local_Control_Accountability_Plan_(LCAP) iconLocal Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)title

 
WHAT IS LCAP:

The LCAP serves as the spending plan that accompanies the District’s budget. The LCAP is a three-year plan that describes the goals, actions, services, and expenditures to support positive student outcomes that address state and local priorities.

 
The LCAP is organized into three sections:
 
(1) Stakeholder Engagement
(2) Goals and Progress Indicators
(3) Actions, Services, and Expenditures
 
Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)

Local_Control_Funding_Formula_(LCFF) iconLocal Control Funding Formula (LCFF)title

WHAT IS LCFF:

The Local Control Funding Formula replaces revenue limits and eliminates most categorical program funding formulas with the intent of allowing local stakeholders to have significant discretion to make the decisions that best meets the needs of the students of the local education agency (LEA).

California’s 2013-14 Budget Act approved a new system that greatly simplifies the way schools are funded in California. This new method is known as the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and represents a major shift in how California school districts were previously funded.
 
Under LCFF, California funds school districts, charter schools and county offices of education equally per student, with adjustments based on grade levels and demographic characteristics. Furthermore, it requires school districts to develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) to demonstrate how education funds are used to support students.
