What is LCAP?
Public schools in California receive funding from the state via the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).  How each district decides to spend that money is written up in their Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).
Paradise Unified School District develops an LCAP each year with the input of all stakeholders (parents, community, students, staff, etc.). In addition, each school within PUSD creates their own LCAP which are given to the district LCAP committees as input for the district's plan.
