Every Student Succeeds Act- New Federal (ESSA)

ESSA Replaces No Child Left Behind Law

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed by President Obama on December 10, 2015. This bipartisan measure reauthorizes the 50-year-old Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the nation’s national education law and longstanding commitment to equal opportunity for all students.The new law builds on key areas of progress in recent years, made possible by the efforts of educators, communities, parents, and students across the country.


For example, today, high school graduation rates are at all-time highs. Dropout rates are at historic lows. And more students are going to college than ever before. These achievements provide a firm foundation for further work to expand educational opportunity and improve student outcomes under ESSA.


The previous version of the law, the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, was enacted in 2002. NCLB represented a significant step forward for our nation’s children in many respects, particularly as it shined a light on where students were making progress and where they needed additional support, regardless of race, income, zip code, disability, home language, or background. The law was scheduled for revision in 2007, and, over time, NCLB’s prescriptive requirements became increasingly unworkable for schools and educators. 


Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

LCAP 2017-2020


What is the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)?

The LCAP is a critical part of the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). Each school district must engage parents, educators, employees and the community to establish these three-year plans. The plan describes the school district’s overall vision for students, annual goals and specific actions the district will take to achieve the vision and goals. The LCAP focuses on eight areas identified as state priorities. The plan also demonstrates how the district’s budget will help achieve the goals, and assess each year how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes.

Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)& LCFF 


The California 2013-14 Budget Act and related legislation (Assembly Bill 97Senate Bill 97, and Senate Bill 91) made significant changes to the State public school funding system. The legislation introduced the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) which simplifies the funding process and strengthens local accountability. Through the LCFF, local educational agencies (LEAs) will receive funds based on local student demographics. The Legislative Analyst's Office Overview of LCFFincludes an explanation of the new school funding system. 

The Local Control Formula Funding (LCFF) model replaces the previous revenue limit funding model as well as eliminates the discrete funding of the majority of the categorical programs. The formula establishes a base with supplemental and concentration add-ons for English Learners (EL), free and reduced-price meal eligible students and foster youth students, and provides additional funding for K-3 CSR, Grades 9-12, Home‑to‑School Transportation, and the Targeted Instructional Improvement Grant (TIIG). 

An important component of the LCFF is the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). LEAs will use the State-approved LCAP template to develop a plan that includes annual goals and actions that will be implemented to meet eight State priorities, and describe the related budget. The LCFF requires the County Superintendent of Schools to approve the LCAPs and budgets for districts within their county.

Education Code 52065 (b) (1) & (2) states “ A county superintendent of schools shall do all of the following: (1) Post on the Internet Web site of the county office of education any local control and accountability plan approved by the county board of education, and any updates or revisions to a local control and accountability plan approved by the county board of education. (2) Post all local control and accountability plans submitted by school districts, or links to those plans, on the Internet Web site of the county office of education.”
