    Background: The LCAP includes multiple state adopted metrics to measure progress on the state’s eight priorities.

Other state priorities require local methods (local indicators) of measuring progress on the state’s eight priorities. 

    • The State Board of Education (SBE) approved standards for the local indicators districts may use in measuring and reporting progress within the appropriate priority area. The approved performance standards require a local educational agency (LEA) to: 
    • Annually measure progress on the local performance indicator based on locally available data. 
    • Report results at a public meeting of the local governing board. 
    • Report results to the public through the Dashboard.
