California and the College Board State and District Partnerships

The College Board Alignment to California’s Local Control and Accountability Plan: Delivering Opportunity to all the California Students

As a membership organization committed to excellence and equity in education, the College Board is partnering with districts across California to develop Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs) that will close the achievement gap and deliver opportunity to all students in the state. We work closely with district leaders and educators to forge evidence-based, comprehensive partnerships that build upon the eight state priorities and propel students forward into college and career success.

In addition, the College Board’s Advanced Placement Program® supports over one million AP students and their teachers, counselors, principals, and AP Coordinators every year. As part of our partnership with districts in California, our State and District Partnership experts work with district leaders to develop systematic strategies to:
(1) increase the number of students who earn a score of 3 or higher on an AP Exam and (2) increase the number of students who are college and career ready — two of the key requirements of the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). We can also provide district-specific AP and college readiness data to help inform the development of goals and action plans.

For more information on how to access LCAP technical assistance, data and resources from the College Board, please join us at one of our upcoming sessions on LCAP.

Propose a plan, engage your community, and adopt an LCAP with our comprehensive and integrated programs and partnership.
