California County Superintendents Educational Services Association
Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) Approval Manual 2019-20 Edition
February 21, 2019
The California County Superintendents Educational Services Association (CCSESA) developed and released the first LCAP Approval Manual in March 2014. The current version of the LCAP Approval Manual (2019-20 Edition), contains updates to the 2018-19 Edition related to the revisions to the LCAP template, the release of the LCFF Budget Overview for Parents, and California’s plans to meet the requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
This manual provides a guide for county offices of education (COEs) to use in their LCAP oversight and approval process. It represents a collaboration led by CCSESA’s Business and Administration Steering Committee (BASC) with support from the Curriculum and Instruction Steering Committee (CISC), and with the assistance of staff from the California Department of Education (CDE), the State Board of Education (SBE), and the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE). The Fiscal Crisis and Management Assistance Team (FCMAT) provided additional assistance.
