CCSA Answers: New LCAP Template and California Dashboard

  • Print

April 14, 2017 Question: I know that a new LCAP template was released in November 2016. We have a three-year, 2015-2018 LCAP that has already been adopted. Do we have to transfer our LCAP to this new template?

Answer: Your annual update, due July 1, 2017, will need to use this new template which was approved by the SBE in November. Your annual update will require using the new template and should reference the new California Dashboard criteria. The Dashboard was just released at the end of March and is an online tool designed to help communities across the state access important information about K-12 districts and schools, including easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success. This is what the County Offices of Education will be reviewing as the oversight agency for LCAPs.
