Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan
Senate Bill (SB) 98 established that the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) and an annual update to the LCAP are not required for the 2020–2021 school year and that the California Department of Education (CDE) shall not publish the California School Dashboard in December 2020 based on performance data on the state and local indicators. SB 98 supersedes the requirement to develop and adopt an LCAP by December 15, 2020, which was established by Executive Order N-56-20, published in April 2020. SB 98 also separates the development and adoption of the Budget Overview for Parents from the development and adoption of the LCAP for the 2020–2021 school year. SB 98 establishes California EC Section 43509 and the Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (Learning Continuity Plan) requirements for the 2020–21 school year. The intent of the LCP is intended to balance the needs of all stakeholders, including educators, parents, students, and community members, while both streamlining engagement and condensing several preexisting plans. In particular, it was important to combine (1) the intent behind Executive Order N-56-20, published in April 2020, which envisioned an off-cycle Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) due December 15th, and (2) the ongoing need for LEAs to formally plan to return to school in the midst of the uncertainty and of COVID-19, without requiring two plans. The LCP replaces the LCAP for the 2020–2021 school year. The LCP adoption timeline of September 30, 2020 is intended to ensure the LCP is completed in the beginning of the 2020–2021 school year. Additionally, the timeline is intended to allow for communication of decisions that will guide how instruction will occur during the 2020–21 school year. This includes in-person instruction, according to health guidance, and distance learning, while providing critical opportunities for stakeholder engagement. On September 8, 2020 Oak Park Unified School District held a public hearing to review the LCP, and on September 15, 2020 Oak Park USD Board of Education adopted the 2020-2021 Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan which is available at the link below.
