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.  

  • 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 that ALL students are actively engaged and supported through a safe, healthy, culturally responsive, and rigorous learning environment.
  • 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: Equity Multiplier Goal (Redwood High School)
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 2024-25 LCAP year are posted as one document, assembled in the following order:
- Budget Overview for Parents
- 2023-24 Annual Update
- 2024-25 LCAP
- Action Tables for the 2024-25 LCAP
- Instructions for the 2024-25 LCAP
