Yesterday evening, Governor Newsom issued Executive Order N-56-20, which extends the deadline to submit the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) and the budget overview for parents until December 15, 2020, on the following conditions:

The written report shall also include the steps taken to support the requirements in Paragraph 2 of the Executive Order N-26-20. This report can be adopted during the same meeting at which the school board adopts the annual budget, due July 1, 2020.
- School districts and county boards of education will submit the written report to the county superintendent of schools or the Superintendent of Public Instruction, respectively, in conjunction with the submission of the adopted annual budget.
- A charter school will submit the written report on the homepage of the LEA website if such a website exists.
- The California Department of Education (CDE) shall develop a form the LEAs may use for the written report.
- The deadline for a county superintendent or the Superintendent of Public Instruction to approve the LCAP pursuant to Education Code Section 52070(d) and 5(d) is extended until January 14, 2021.

- The requirement that a county superintendent of schools disapproves the budget by September 15, 2020 if the budget does not include expenditures necessary to implement the LCAP pursuant to Education Code Sections 42127(c)(3) and 42127(d)(1), is waived.
- The requirement that a county superintendent of schools shall not adopt or approve a budget before the LCAP for the budget year is approved pursuant to Education Code Section 42127(d)(2), is waived.

- The requirement that a school district board, county board of education, and the governing board of a charter school review data to be publicly reported for Dashboard local indicators in conjunction with the adoption of the LCAP, pursuant to Education Code Section 5(e)(2), is waived with respect to the review and adoption that would be required by July 1, 2020.

- The requirements relating to minimum instructional minutes physical education for grades 1-12 are waived, specified in Education Code Sections 51210(a)(7), 51220(d), 51222, and 51223. The requirement relating to providing adequate facilities for physical education courses, specified in Education Code Section 51241(b)(2), is waived.
- The requirement that each LEA maintaining any of the grades 5, 7, and 9 to administer a physical fitness performance test to each student in those grades, specified in Education Code Section 60800, and the requirement that the California Department of Education collect data regarding the administration of the physical fitness test, specified in Education Code Sections 33352(b)(4) and (5), are waived for the 2019-20 school year.
Last evening, Superintendent Tony Thurmond released the following statement, “School districts statewide have been working hard to put distance learning platforms into place and keep their students fed. The LCAP process deadlines should not be placing additional burdens on schools, which as a result of our current climate of social distancing, cannot meaningfully engage with their community stakeholders,” Thurmond said. “The Governor’s action frees up staff time and resources for districts to focus solely on the immediate learning needs and health of our students.”
The California Department of Education has released a COVID-19 accountability FAQ.
AB 1505 and AB 1507 Charter Schools

The department anticipates that the State Board of Education will approve regulations on the implementation of these two laws, and is seeking feedback in four key areas that may require definitions and/or further clarification.
- Petition for the Establishment of a Charter School: District and County Review
- Petition for the Establishment of a Charter School: SBE Appeals
- AB 1507
