AUSD Local Control Accountability Plan

The state’s Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) legislation requires school districts to provide their communities the opportunity to respond to the school district’s LCAP in writing. We have been utilizing input from various meetings with parents, staff, and students along with survey data to develop our LCAP. Posted at this link are the LCAP Executive Summary (in English and Chinese) and the LCAP plan in its required state template format. We welcome your comments, which may be posted on my Blog, sent to me via email at, or sent to me at the Arcadia Education Center, 150 South Third Ave., Arcadia 91006 by May 31, 2014. Copies of the LCAP are also available at the Arcadia Education Center.

Thank you for taking the time to review this important plan,

Joel Shawn
