VII.e. Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) Update
Recommended Motion:

Hear an update on the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) process. This will include a brief overview of the 2018-19 LCAP, an update on DJUSD's progress monitoring process, and the current plan for community outreach. 


As part of California's Local Control Funding Formula, DJUSD is responsible for creating a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) to articulate District program goals, how those goals will be achieved, and how funding will support students in our unduplicated count.  

DJUSD's LCAP process requires an annual update and potential revisions to actions and services. Both the update and revisions include extensive community input. Staff plans to systematically engage a broader stakeholder group in 2018-19 by utilizing current Advisory groups rather than a stand-alone LCAP Advisory Committee. 

Current Advisory groups will now more directly inform the LCAP.  The Advisory groups include the Parent; Classified; Certificated; Special Education, and Climate Committee Advisories.  Other groups from which we will seek input are Principals, the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC), and the District Technology Advisory Committee (DTAC).

This update will provide an overview of the LCAP, DJUSD's LCAP process, and how the District is including stakeholders to advance District LCAP goals. 

Financial Impact:
None at this time.

Recommended Motion:

Approve the staff recommendations to begin planning and procurement activities to complete Series 1 funded projects including hydration stations, update and/or reconfigure all-gender restrooms, safety projects, construction of two elementary multi-purpose rooms, construction of science labs at Emerson Junior High School and any other additional Group 1 projects as funds allow.


The Board will continue discussion from the November 15, 2018 meeting regarding Series 1 funded projects. Staff will provide additional information responsive to Board questions.

In the Fall of 2017, the Board of Education authorized LPA Architects to create an updated Facilities Master Plan for the Davis Joint Unified School District. A Facilities Master Plan is the guiding facilities document which allows deferred maintenance, modernization and new construction to be completed in a way that maximizes and aligns the District’s limited facilities dollars with District goals and needs. The District completed its previous Facilities Master Plan in the 2009-10 school year.

LPA and District staff conducted extensive stakeholder outreach to create a document responsive to the District’s current conditions and that outlines a vision for the future of DJUSD facilities aligned with the District’s goals of 21st century teaching and learning, closing the achievement gap and creating safe and inclusive environments. The Board of Education received and reviewed the draft Facilities Master Plan on May 17, 2018 and provided guidance to staff and LPA regarding priorities within the plan. The Board approved the final Facilities Master Plan on June 14, 2018.

The final Facilities Master Plan draft can be viewed here.

Additional information regarding the Measure M Program can be found here.

Financial Impact:

Series 1 projects will cost the district approximately $50 million from Measure M Bond revenue.
