The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is the touchstone by which we guide and execute our efforts to educate children. The LCAP is also a critical part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). It identifies goals that focus on District practices and resources to ensure students are actively engaged in school, meet grade-level standards, and are college and career ready upon graduation. The LCAP shows the alignment of PRJUSD curriculum, instruction, assessment, and interventions with the eight state priorities. The areas are:

  1. Basic Services
  2. Implementation of California’s Academic Standards 
  3. Parent Involvement
  4. Student Achievement
  5. Student Engagement
  6. School Climate
  7. Course Access
  8. Other Student Outcomes

To develop the LCAP, school districts must engage parents, educators, employees, and the community.  PRJUSD is focused on improving communication and involvement of all stakeholders, through stakeholder information meetings, online communication, the school and district websites, and stakeholder advisory groups.  In developing the 2021-24, the district conducted student, staff, and parent surveys, established an LCAP Stakeholder Committee and an LCAP Parent Advisory Committee, worked closely with the District English Language Advisory Committee (DELAC), and convened subcommittees to focus on areas of student need.

These five goals were written in partnership with our advisory committees, DELAC, student/parent/staff input, and District Leadership:

  1. STUDENT AND FAMILY CONNECTION TO SCHOOL AND LEARNING:  All students and families will be connected to school and engaged in learning as demonstrated by local parent and student surveys, CA Healthy Kids Survey, academic engagement measures (chronic absenteeism), and condition and climate measures (suspensions).  Board Goal. (State Priority 3, Priority 5, Priority 6)
  2. COLLEGE AND CAREER READINESS:  Students will be college, career, and community ready when they graduate. All students will be college and career ready as measured by the College and Career Index (Broad Goal). (Priority 1, Priority 2, Priority 4, Priority 6, Priority 7, Priority 8)
  3. RECLASSIFICATION OF ENGLISH LEARNERS AS ENGLISH PROFICIENT:  All English learners will make progress each year toward reclassification as measured by ELPAC (Broad Goal) (Priority 2, Priority 3, Priority 4, Priority 7)
  4. READING BY THIRD GRADE: All students will read at grade level by the end of third grade as measured by the local district reading assessment (Focus Goal) State (Priority 3, Priority 4)
  5. ALGEBRA I READINESS:  All students will be ready for Algebra I by the end of 8th grade as measured by local district mathematics assessments (Focus Goal) (Priority 4)

The Paso Robles Joint Unified School District’s LCAP describes the District’s overall vision for students, annual goals, and specific actions the district will take to achieve the vision and goals. Also included within the LCAP is how the district will expend the supplemental grant funds that are provided by the state to support English learners, low-income students, and foster youth.  Each year the District will meet with the LCAP Parent Advisory, LCAP Stakeholders Committee, and DELAC to review the data for each goal, evaluate the effectiveness of the actions and services within the LCAP, and make adjustments or modifications as needed.   This information is provided each year in the Annual Update.  During the 2020-21 year, the LCAP was suspended, due to the pandemic, and a one-year Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCAP) was developed.  The 2021-24 LCAP includes an annual update for the 2019-20 LCAP and 2020-21 LCP.
