Please look around to see what we do so well here at SVUSD. Be sure to visit the individual school web sites to see what's happening at our two elementary schools, middle school, high school, and Independent Study program.

Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

As part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), school districts, county offices of education and charter schools are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), beginning on July 1, 2014.

The LCAP is required to identify annual goals, specific actions, and measure progress for student subgroups across multiple performance indicators, including student academic achievement, school climate, student access to a broad curriculum, and parent engagement. School districts are required to obtain parent and public input in developing, revising, and updating LCAPs.


The academic priorities must be aligned to the district's spending plan. County superintendents must review school district LCAPs and ensure alignment of projected spending, services, and goals. County Offices of Education are required to provide technical assistance when they disapprove an LCAP. The state Superintendent of Public Instruction may intervene if a school district fails to show improvement across multiple subgroups in three out of four consecutive years.
