The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) Toolkit: Using research-based tools to promote equity for English Learners (LCAP Toolkit) is a resource for educators, families, and community members to ensure that the LCAP—the state’s public accountability mechanism— reflects how actions, services, programs, and resources are made visible to ensure equitable opportunities and outcomes for English Learners. The LCAP Toolkit consists of four parts that can be used together or independently. Part I presents information pertaining to policy, background, and LCAP Toolkit development. Part II introduces the English Learner Research-Aligned LCAP Rubrics. Part III offers four additional resources and tools that support the applied use of the rubrics by engaging EL-focused networks in developing, analyzing, and refining LCAP plans. Part IV appendices include references and resources.
