Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) = Excellence through Equity
The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) was adopted in California for public education in 2013. This plan allocates funds based on specific student needs and allows maximum flexibility at the local district level.
As part of LCFF, school districts now develop, adopt and update a three-year plan called the LCAP. Part of the development of the LCAP includes garnering input and feedback from community stakeholder groups, staff, parents and students. The LCAP has eight components that are identified here from the California State PTA website.
The LCAP plan is the roadmap of the Excellence through Equity plan approved by the SMMUSD Board of Education in 2016. The Board of Education and district leadership under the direction of Superintendent Dr. Ben Drati are working to achieve educational and extracurricular access and equity for all students.

SMMUSD Common Message
All students graduate ready for college and careers from schools that are safe, socially responsive, and academically-rigorous. This is accomplished through a self-reflective, shared system of accountability that consistently uses culturally relevant best practices to maximize equitable student outcomes.
We make decisions and allocate resources with “students first” in mind.
We meet our students where they are and provide the necessary resources and attention to make all students successful.
We engage students in meaningful, rigorous and relevant educational experiences where they are inspired, supported, challenged and motivated.
We are stronger when we collaborate, dialogue and listen to each other in a civil, productive way, to improve outcomes for our students.
We respect and value our diverse student and staff population as an integral part of our learning community.
We work and dialogue with each other in a respectful manner, setting the example for our students of how civil discourse leads to positive outcomes.
