Vista Del Mar Union School District will have a Special Board Meeting on Tuesday, June 14, 2016 @ 3:00 p.m. in the Vista Library to hold the Local Control & Accountability Plan (LCAP) Public Hearing and 2016-17 Budget Public Hearing. Revisions to the LCAP and/or the 2016-17 Budget may then be made in consideration of any feedback from the Public Hearings.  The LCAP Adoption Public Hearing and the 2016-17 Budget Adoption Public Hearing will then take place will then take place at the Regular Board Meeting on Wednesday, June 15, 2016. There are significant changes to the statutory requirements to the Public Hearing and Board Adoption of school districts’ 2016-17 budgets. These changes are the result of the implementation of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and the related Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) requirements. Per Education Code Sections 42127 & 52062, two separate Governing Board public meetings, held at least one day apart, are now required for the school district budget hearing and budget adoption. In addition, the LCAP public hearing must occur at the same meeting as the budget hearing and the LCAP adoption must occur at the same meeting as the budget adoption.  The LCAP item must precede the budget item at each meeting. The public hearings require 72 hours public notice and both the 2015-16 budget and LCAP must be adopted on or before July 1, 2016.
