School Counselors role in LCFF and LCAP

The LCFF and the LCAP regulations provide a unique opportunity for school counselors to educate faculty, parents, community agencies, and local school boards on the important ways school counseling programs and services help the district meet the requirements of the Local Accountability Plans (LCAP). School counselors are encouraged to a) participate in focus groups; b) present data on student gaps and needs; c) provide descriptions of current and proposed services for all students; d) share outcomes of current programs and services; and e) propose supplemental services for marginalized youth. For more information about counselor roles and LCAPs visit Hatching Results
