Local Control Accountability Plan
The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a required document that each California school district must prepare under new state budget laws.

Public hearings to review the final draft of the LCAP took place at the June 9 and June 16 board meetings. You are welcome to share your comments and suggestions regarding the LCAP with the superintendent at (805) 682-2564, or by email: dcooperman@hopeschooldistrict.org
