Sunnyvale School District Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a critical part of the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) for California Schools.
The LCAP must focus on eight areas identified as state priorities:
- Student Achievement
- Student Engagement
- School Climate
- Course Access
- Parental Involvement
- Implementation of Common Core State Standards
- Basic Services
- Other Student Outcomes
Sunnyvale LCAP Goals
As a result of various meetings and conversations with parents, principals, coaches, teacher leaders, and district administrators, the Sunnyvale School District arrived at the decision to completely align our LCAP goals with the district leadership goals that are in sync with the eight LCAP priority areas.
The feedback received from our various stakeholder groups was very helpful in not only the development of our goals but were key in determining increased and improved services for our students. We specifically outlined programs and services that were identified as important by our stakeholders in order for our students to be successful.
GOAL 1: Ensure all students have access to equitable conditions of learning by providing and investing in highly qualified staff, well-maintained facilities, and equipment, as well as robust standards-aligned instructional materials and resources.
GOAL 2: Provide high-quality, equitable, and responsive instruction for ALL students, to prepare them for college and/or career readiness.
GOAL 3: Ensure school and classroom environments provide Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT) for the Whole Child so that students can reach their full academic potential.
GOAL 4: Foster a welcoming and inclusive environment for all parents, families, and community stakeholders as partners in the education and support of all students' success in school.
GOAL 5: Accelerate learning outcomes for English Language Learners, as measured by local benchmark and state assessments, as well as an increase in the district reclassification rate.
