Local Control Funding – LCFF and LCAP

Local Control Funding – LCFF and LCAP

Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)

The local control funding formula (LCFF) was enacted in 2013–14, and it replaced the previous kindergarten through grade 12 (K–12) finance system which had been in existence for roughly 40 years.

Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)

The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a tool for local educational agencies to set goals, plan actions, and leverage resources to meet those goals to improve student outcomes. This page provides resources to support the planning, implementation and evaluation of an LCAP.

District Process for Input and Data Gathering:

In the 2013-14 school year, the district worked with Key Data Systems to complete a comprehensive needs assessments. In March 2013, a Local Educational Agency Plan was developed to address the findings of this needs assessment and submitted to the California Department of Education for approval. In addition, the district completed a state audit of its federal programs and revised its English Learner Master Plan to ensure alignment of English learner services to federal expectations. Parent and staff input was solicited throughout the needs assessment and plan development process. These documents are the foundation upon which we began our work on the LCAP.
