LEARNING CONTINUITY AND ATTENDANCE PLANS
The Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan (Learning Continuity and Attendance 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 on how student learning continuity will be
addressed during the COVID-19 crisis in the 2020–21 school year.

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires state educational agencies to determine school eligibility for comprehensive support and improvement (CSI). Local educational agencies (LEAs) with schools that meet the criteria for CSI must partner with stakeholders to locally develop and implement a plan to improve student outcomes.
The county office of education also plays a role in providing technical assistance and support to LEAs within its county that serve schools that meet the criteria for CSI.
COMPREHENSIVE SUPPORT AND IMPROVEMENT PLANS
On June 29, 2020, the governor signed into law Senate Bill 98, which establishes that the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) and an annual update to the LCAP are not required for the 2020–21 school year.
This page provides resources to support the planning, implementation,
and evaluation of a school's LCAP.
