Question: Is our charter school required to have our LCAP approved by our authorizer?

Answer: No. The authorizer does not approve a charter school's LCAP. Charter schools are simply required by Education Code 47604.33 to submit their LCAP to their authorizer and County Office of Education, the same process as for a charter school's annual budget. An authorizer and the County Office of Education do not have any responsibility or authority to approve a charter school's LCAP.
