The 2022-2023 LCAP
The Culver City Unified School District Board of Trustees heard a presentation at the regularly scheduled Board Meeting of June 14, 2022, regarding the information included in the the 2022-23 Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), which contains the Update to the Budget Overview for Parents, and Local Indicator Data related to identified metrics, and Implementation Data. The Culver City Unified School District Board of Trustees approved the 2022-2023 LCAP on June 28, 2022.
During the past three years, Culver City Unified has collected and reviewed data from multiple sources, including student achievement and stakeholder data, to help determine where funding should be targeted for continuous improvement in education. As a result of this comprehensive review, CCUSD has made major investments in LCAP initiatives such as Inclusive Practices, Educational Equity, Elementary Counseling, Elementary Arts Instruction, Instructional Coaching, Makerspaces, Technology, Infrastructure, and Mental Health.
After review and careful consideration of stakeholder feedback, the district has designed actions to further support our three district goals and eight state priorities: LCAP/Budget Presentation (June 2021). Parents, staff and students were invited to review the proposed actions and provide feedback, and suggestions from stakeholder input were incorporated into the final version, which was approved at the June 22, 2021 Board of Education meeting.
Stakeholders that would like to have more detailed information can review the Culver City LCAP document which includes attachments outlining our progress toward our goals. This document is also used by principals to inform stakeholders and elicit their input on ideas for next steps in improving our instructional program and environment for students. At each school site, representative stakeholders on the School Site Council use the LCAP to create goals and actions in the Single Plan for Student Achievement (also known as the Single Plan, or the SPSA).

CCUSD LCAP Partner Engagement Advisory Committee
Based on feedback from our educational partners, it was determined that partner input would be more productive and meaningful when discussed collaboratively as a whole rather than in separate partner engagement meetings. With the understanding that hearing from different groups broaden perspectives and help to inform discussions, CCUSD has established an LCAP Partner Advisory Committee (PAC). The PAC includes a representative group of members that includes: school administrators, parents representing all sub-groups, teachers, PTA/Booster/CCEF leadership, Bargaining Unit leadership, district administrators, classified staff, board members, and students. PAC meetings are open to all that are interested in participating. The PAC will meet six times from 6:00-7:30 pm via Zoom.
ABOUT THE LOCAL CONTROL FUNDING FORMULA (LCFF)
Beginning in 2013-14, the state of California brought major changes to the way school funding is allocated, with the goal of channeling greater resources to the students who need them the most. This funding is known as the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is the document that school districts use to describe how the funding is used to support its goals and actions to serve all students. The LCFF model has established three sources of state funding with increased local control to determine the best use of those funds:
- Per-Student Base Funding - The district receives a base level of per-student funding that varies slightly depending on the grade level of each student.
- Supplemental Funding - This funding source adds 20 percent to the base funding for each English language learner, low income student and foster youth.
- Concentration Funding - The third level of funding is equal to 50 percent of the entire base. However, this funding is only received if a district's enrollment of English language learners, low income students and foster youths exceeds 55 percent of its total enrollment. CCUSD does not receive this third level of funding, because its enrollment does not exceed the 55 percent threshold.
