The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) of the Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) has been approved by the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE). Cited by LACOE as a “high-quality plan,” PUSD’s LCAP was developed with the input of staff, parents and community members.
PUSD, along with other California school districts, has transitioned to the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) funding model, radically changing how schools are funded in the state of California. LCFF provides new decision-making power to local school districts to act based on the needs they see for students. In addition, this shifts California from treating funding as an input to support students to a resource that is linked to performance expectations.
