The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCP)

  • The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (or LCP) is a new tool created in response to the pandemic for districts to explain to students, families and stakeholders how they will provide quality learning opportunities (whether in-person or at a distance) and support the needs of students and staff during the 2020-2021 school year.

    The LCP outlines the District’s approach to:

    • addressing the unique needs of students who are English Language Learners, low-income, foster youth, students with dis/abilities and students experiencing homelessness,
    • addressing unfinished learning that resulted from extended school closures,
    • supporting mental and social-emotional health of students and staff,
    • providing students with continued access to food, and
    • increasing or improving services for foster youth, low-income youth, and English learners.

     

    The LCP details the use of federal and state funding, including new “learning loss mitigation funds,” to support this work. The LCP is a one-time replacement for the LCAP for the 2020-21 school year due to the unusual nature of learning during this crisis year.


    There will be no LCAP (Local Control and Accountability Plan) adopted for this year. The 2021-2024 LCAP will be adopted in June 2021.


    Because the LCP must be approved by the Board of Education by Sept. 30, 2020, the timeline to write the plan is incredibly short. We are therefore sharing a proposed plan rather than creating a plan together. However, the LCP content grew out of months of dialogue with students, families, staff, and community partners through town halls, focus groups, surveys, and public meetings. Actions proposed in the LCP will reflect input from the LCAP Parent-Student Advisory Committee (LCAP PSAC) and its subcommittees, as well as from the emerging agreements with our labor partners. The first draft of the LCP will be posted the week of Aug. 17 for additional community review and feedback.


    How can you be involved in the LCP Development?


    Over the coming weeks, there will be many ways to provide input into the 2020-21 LCP, including attending any of the following meetings (see OUSD calendar for access details):

     

    • LCAP Parent & Student Advisory Committee (Aug. 19, 5:30-8:30 pm)
    • Foster Youth Advisory Committee (Aug. 25, 5:30-8:00 pm)
    • Committee to Empower Excellence in Black Students’ Education (Sept. 3, 6:00-8:00 pm)


    Community members may also provide written comments about specific actions/expenditures. We will provide an update on this when the document is released.


    Presentation to and Adoption by the Board of Education


    Staff will present the LCP to the Board of Education at public hearings with a first reading on Sept. 9th and planned adoption on the 26th. At that time, the District will respond in writing to comments received from the advisory committees.

LCP vs LCAP: What's the Difference?

  • The LCP is a one-time replacement for the LCAP for the 2020-21 school year due to the unusual nature of learning during this crisis year.


    There will be no LCAP (Local Control and Accountability Plan) adopted for this year. The 2021-2024 LCAP will be adopted in June 2021.
