Local Control Funding Formula
The purpose of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is to simplify how state funding is provided to school districts. Under this new funding system, revenue limits and most state categorical programs are eliminated. The district will receive funding based on the demographic profile of the students we serve and gain flexibility to use these funds to improve outcomes of students. The LCFF creates funding targets based on these student characteristics. For our district, the LCFF funding targets consist of grade-span specific base grants plus supplemental and concentration grants that reflect student demographic factors.
Funding targets under the LCFF consist of the following components:
Implementation of the LCFF begins in 2013-14. Full funding levels under the LCFF will take eight years based on its current Proposition 98 growth projections.
Local Control and Accountability Plan
The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is an important component of the LCFF. Under the LCFF all districts are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year LCAP, beginning on July 1, 2014, using a template adopted by the California State Board of Education (SBE) which explains how the district intends to meet annual goals for all students, with specific activities to address the eight priorities included in Education Code (EC) 52060(d) as described below:
