Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

Castro Valley Unified School District is committed to ensuring that ALL of our students achieve at the highest possible levels.  Our district and site efforts and successes are rated and reported through the California Accountability Model and School Dashboard. Through our district Local Control Accountability Plan, we work with our community to set goals for student learning, aligning our actions, services, and budgets to support ALL of our students’ needs, and focusing on their overall and individual academic, social, emotional and behavioral health. Through our sites’ Single Plans for Student Achievement, our school sites identify goals, priorities, and programs to support student achievement. Through our School Accountability Report Cards, all areas of staffing, facilities, achievement, and budgets are reported.

California Accountability Model and School Dashboard

California Department of Education has a system for evaluating schools and districts that includes multiple measures of student success. The California School Dashboard (www.caschooldashboard.org) includes graphic representations of Literacy and Math test scores, high school graduation rates, English learner progress rates, and suspension rates for all students and for student subgroups. The Dashboard will soon also include additional rates for students’ college and career readiness and attendance.



Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

Castro Valley’s Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) details our four major goals for our students and lists specific actions, services, and budgets to support those goals.  Click here for the one-page LCAP Goal overview. 

  • Goal 1: Ensure that ALL students graduate “college and career ready” through the full implementation of the New California Standards for Literacy and Mathematics and the Next Generation Science Standards.
  • Goal 2: Ensure a positive learning environment with properly certificated teachers, adequate materials, and appropriate facilities to support high-quality teaching and student learning.
  • Goal 3: Empower ALL parents (including those speaking a language other than English) to be actively engaged in their students’ education and decision-making processes by providing timely information and encouraging parents to demonstrate their support for student learning and for the importance of graduating “college and career ready.”
  • Goal 4: Ensure that ALL students are actively engaged and supported through a safe, healthy, culturally responsive, and rigorous learning environment.
Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan 

The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCP) is an important part of the overall budget that seeks to address funding stability for schools while providing information at the local educational agency (LEA) level for how student learning continuity will be addressed during the COVID-19 crisis in the 2020–21 school year. The provisions for the plan were approved by the Governor and Legislature in June in Senate Bill (SB) 98 and can be found in Educational Code (EC) Section 43509.

The LCP is intended to balance the needs of all stakeholders, including educators, parents, students and community members, while both streamlining engagement and condensing several pre existing 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 LCP replaces the LCAP for the 2020–21 school year.



LCAP Overview
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 provides an opportunity for local educational agencies (LEAs) to share their stories of how, what, and why programs and services are selected to meet their local needs. The components of the LCAP for the 2021-2022 LCAP year are posted as one document, assembled in the following order:
- LCFF Budget Overview for Parents
- Annual Update with Instructions
- Plan Summary
- Stakeholder Engagement
- Goals and Actions
- Increased or Improved Services for Foster Youth, English Learners and Low-Income students
- Expenditure Tables
- Instructions 
COVID-19 Operations Written Report
California school districts have each developed a COVID-19 Operations Written Report to describe how they responded to school closures. The report describes how CVUSD continued its educational programs, distributed needed technology, and provided meals to students during the Spring Semester school closures of the 2019-2020 school year. This report was adopted by the CVUSD Board of Trustees at the regular Board meeting held on June 25, 2020. Follow the links below to read the report.
