    A Review of Year 2 LCAPS: A Weak Response to English Learners

    $ 7.00

    “A Review of Year 2 LCAPs: A Weak Response to English Learners” reviewed 29 key

    school district Local Control Accountability Plans (LCAPs) to determine the impact

    those LCAPs are having on English Learner students. The report found that LCAPs

    are distressingly weak in identifying English Learner needs, building capacity to

    serve English Learners, and supporting the program and services that are

    responsive to English Learners.  Recommendations for districts, county offices

    and the state are contained in the publication.
