Civic Learning:
How It Benefits Local Control and Accountability Plan Priority Areas

The Local Control Funding Formula provides a unique opportunity for school
districts to use the Six Proven Practices of Civic Learning to provide high-quality educational programs for all students. As schools and districts develop Local Control and Accountability Plans they are encouraged to consider research that demonstrates that civic learning is a powerful tool for meeting several of the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) priority areas.

What Is Civic Learning?
Civic learning provides students with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions they need to be informed and engaged participants in our democracy. Research
identifies six proven practices in civic learning:
1. Providing classroom instruction in Government, History, Law,
Economics, and Democracy;
2. Combining community service and learning;
3. Discussing current events;
4. Giving students a voice in school governance;
5. Offering extracurricular clubs; and
6. Simulating democratic processes.
