Uniform Complaint Procedures (UCP) - Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)


Uniform Complaint Procedures shall also be used to address any complaint alleging the District's failure to comply with the LCAP requirements in the Education Code. The complaint may be filed anonymously if the complaint provides evidence or information leading to evidence to support an allegation of noncompliance with the LCAP requirements. If the complainant is not satisfied with the decision of the school district, the individual may appeal the decision to the State Superintendent of Public Instruction. The State Superintendent of Public Instruction is required to issue a decision on the appeal within 60 days of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction's receipt of the appeal. (5 CCR §4622)

If the school district finds merit in the complaint or the State Superintendent of Public Instruction finds merit in the appeal, the school district will provide a remedy to all affected pupils, parents and guardians.
