Learning Continuity and Attendance Plans (LCPs)
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 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 the ongoing need for LEAs to formally plan to return to school amid the uncertainty and of COVID-19, without requiring two plans.
