Desert Sands's DSUSD LCAP


LCAP - Growing Stronger Together

About LCAP

In DSUSD, 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 has been developed for 2021-24.

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.

How does DSUSD develop the LCAP?

The development of the LCAP follows a Plan-Do-Study-Act cycle that takes place during a ten-month period, beginning in November each year. The LCAP is designed to be a rolling three-year plan.

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