Welcome to Leadership Support Services


Leadership Support Services logo In 2013, with the state legislature’s passage of the Local Control Funding Formula, California embarked on a bold new funding model for its public schools. This new model requires us to shift our thinking from the traditional compliance model to one of empowerment, starting with local community involvement and based on performance, improvement, and equity among districts and students. In return for a more equitable distribution of funds, Local Education Agencies (LEAs) are required to complete Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs), which strategically outline the goals and actions for improving students’ education as measured by conditions of learning, pupil achievement, and climate within schools and districts.

Leadership Support Services Department is dedicated to helping education leaders in Tulare County develop their LCAPs, along with their stakeholders, as a part of the continuous improvement cycle. Services provided by the department include:

  • One-on-one LCAP Technical Support meetings for Tulare County’s 43 School Districts and 6 charter schools
  • Regular email updates to Tulare County school leaders on state developments which impact the LCAP process
  • Professional Learning sessions focused on strategic planning around the LCAP through our Learning and Leadership series
  • Technical workshops and resources for understanding the new accountability system and connections to the LCAP
  • Data services to enhance stakeholder understanding and input for the LCAP
  • Qualitative feedback on LCAP updates and drafts
  • Advisory assistance to district LCAP leads, as needed
