The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) represents a major change in how California supports local education agencies. It provides new decision-making authority to districts, empowering them to act based on the needs they see for students. This shifts the state from treating school funding as “input to support students” to “resources that are linked to performance expectations.”
Complementing these changes is the newly required Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP is the Funding Formula’s vehicle for transparency and engagement. Through the development of their LCAPs, districts are expected to articulate and share the performance data, needs, actions, and anticipated outcomes that are guiding their use of Supplemental and Concentration State funding.
The Superintendent will notify members of the public of the opportunity to submit written comments regarding the specific actions and expenditures proposed in the plan or plan update.
