Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)Top of Page

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 plans. The plans will describe 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 must focus on eight areas identified as state priorities. The plans will also demonstrate 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. The LCAP, a multi-year (3-year) document, includes five (5) goal areas which frame the priorities for our continual improvement. Our Board of Trustees approved the LCAP along with our District Budget at the June 30, 2016 Board Meeting.

The Eureka Union School District will continue to offer challenging core instructional programs to promote student acquisition of 21st century college and career ready skills and mastery of state content standards.

  • Implement adopted Language Arts curriculum for grades K-3 in 2016-17. In addition, continue further study to purchase California Standards aligned Language Arts materials for students and teachers in grades 5-8, in preparation for the 2017-18 school year.
  • Continue to work together to ensure that our students are highly successful in the mastery of the new California State Standards in all curricular areas.
  • Continued collaboration with the Roseville Joint Union High School District (RJUHSD) and neighboring TK-8 Districts will ensure that students are fully prepared for the pathways available to them as they transition from EUSD to their secondary educational pursuits.
  • Enhanced teacher collaboration provided through release time as needed to continue to improve the core instructional program.
  • Reduce Professional Development budget by 50% to address structural deficit to district reserves.
