Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)
The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is major restructuring of how California schools receive funding. It is the most comprehensive reform of how districts receive funds in over 40 years. School districts receive a base funding which is contingent on the number of students enrolled, in addition, districts serving high-needs students receive more funds, based on the number and percentages of high-needs students they serve. Supplemental LCFF funds will support students who need it most, such as low-income students (as measured by their eligibility for free or reduced-price lunch), children in foster care and students identified as English learner. It provides us the opportunity to work together to inform how we allocate the funds to serve our students, including those who are identified as Students with Disabilities and the Gifted and Talented.
Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
Under the Local Control Funding Formula requirements, districts must consult with students, parents, teachers, school personnel, administrators, and the local community to develop a three year Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), using the California Department of Education plan template. The LCAP is annually updated, revised and approved each year. It describes the overall vision of the district and how it will align actions, services and resources to support our students across the eight priority areas. The eight state priority areas are organized into three categories, including Conditions of Learning, Pupil Outcomes, and Engagement.
