The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is the District’s interactive budgeting process, which helps CCUSD identify annual goals, develop strategic actions, and measure progress on academic achievement, school climate and parent engagement.


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 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.  Parents, staff and students were invited to review the proposed actions and provide feedback for our LCAP Survey, which was administered during the Spring of 2018.  Suggestions from stakeholder input were incorporated into the Annual Update, which was approved at the June 26, 2018 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).

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 new funding is called Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). Under California's previous system for funding K-12 schools, there were more than 40 funding categories, each for a specific purpose identified by the state. 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.
