Desert Sands's DSUSD LCAP/LCP


2020-2021 Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCP)

Senate Bill 98, approved by Governor Newsom on June 29, 2020, made several key changes to the accountability requirements for the 2020-21 school year. Included in these changes was the establishment of the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCP). This plan is intended to memorialize the planning process that had already been underway for the 2020-2021 school year.

Due to COVID-19 and the establishment of Senate Bill 98, the LCAP was put on hold for this year, but will be developed for the 2021-2024 three-year plan.

Desert Sands Unified School District Board of Education approved the LCP on September 24, 2020. The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCP) documents the efforts the district will take in 2020-2021 to:

  • Provide continuity of learning
  • Address the impact of COVID-19 on pupils, staff, and the community
  • Provide in-person instructional offerings and distance learning
  • Support students who have experienced learning loss due to school closures
  • Support students' mental health, and social/emotional well-being
  • Provide school nutrition for students attending school in-person and through distance learning
  • Provide professional development for teachers and staff to support distance learning and social distancing practices

In Desert Sands Unified, our day-to-day work is driven by the goals outlined in our three-year strategic planning document, called the Local Control Accountability Plan, or LCAP and will be developed for 2021-2024.

As part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), school districts are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). The plan includes information about the district's goals for all students, and the specific actions geared toward implementing and measuring the progress for student groups across multiple performance indicators according to the priorities set by the state: Student Achievement, Student Engagement, Other Student Outcomes, School Climate, Parental Involvement, Basic Services, Implementation of State Standards, and Course Access.

More information on LCFF/LCAP

The process to develop and finalize the LCAP takes about 10 months, beginning in November each year. The LCAP is designed to be a rolling three-year plan.

There are many ways for stakeholders to engage in the LCAP process. The Board of Education is tasked with collecting stakeholder input, identifying priorities for inclusion in the plan, and approving an annual budget to support the plan. The process ensures multiple opportunities for parents, staff, students, and community members to provide feedback on the plan.
