Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan

  • Sonora Elementary Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (LCAAP)


    The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (Learning Continuity Plan) is a key part of the overall budget package for K-12 that seeks to address funding stability for schools while providing information at the local educational agency (LEA) level for how student learning continuity will be addressed during the COVID-19 crisis in the 2020–21 school year. The provisions for the plan were approved by the Governor and Legislature in June in SB 98 and can be found in EC Section 43509.

    The Learning Continuity Plan 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 Learning Continuity Plan replaces the LCAP for the 2020–21 school year.

    Please visit the California Department of Education website for more information on LCAAP. CDE Learning and Attendance Plan

    Dear SES Families,


    For the last five years, the State of California changed the way education is funded and requires school districts to develop a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). The 3 year LCAP requires school districts to gather feedback from stakeholders such as certificated employees, classified employees, other personnel, parents, and public agencies to determine goals, actions, and budget priorities for the district.


    Please take a few minutes to give your input on this important process.


    SESD focus on eight areas identified as State of California priorities. The plan 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.

    Thank you,

    Sonora Elementary School District
