Local Control Funding & Accountability - LCFF & LCAP


California is launching the most significant change to how schools are funded in 40 years. This new funding model uses a new formula designed to provide more local control over spending called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). As a result, each district in the state of California is required to create a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).

What is the Local Control Funding Formula-LCFF?

California state law sets out the system for funding public schools. State leaders largely decide how much money is available to schools each year as part of the state budget process.

In 2013, California adopted a new formula for deciding how much money each school district gets, called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is the Governor’s proposal to overhaul the school finance system. The LCFF replaces the Revenue Limit and most categorical program funding. It uses base grants per pupil, with supplemental funding provided for students who are English learners or eligible for the Free and Reduced-Price Meals (FRPM) Program. The base grant will be further adjusted by grade level to provide for smaller class sizes in the early elementary years and for career-technical education in high school. The new formula will be phased in over several years and is expected to be fully implemented by 2020-21.  

School districts will decide how to use the funds, but under the new system they must get input from their local communities. They also have to tie their budgets to improvement goals by creating a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).

Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is an important component of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), the State’s new way of funding school districts.  The LCAP utilizes a standardized template to describe how our district will address State and local priorities for all students and for specific student groups defined in Education Code.  The Plan includes goals and associated measures to monitor progress as well as action steps and associated budget amounts for those actions.  Everything that is budgeted in the LCAP, is in the District’s LCFF.  Everything in LCFF is not in the LCAP.  The LCAP is not a budget document, dollar amounts cannot be meaningfully added together.  It is a plan for meeting State and local priorities.  The LCAP was developed with input from community and stakeholder groups including parents, teachers, support staff, administrators and bargaining unit groups.  A special thank you goes to the District’s LCAP Advisory Committee and the LCAP English Learner Advisory Committees for their active participation in the process this year.  Comments can be submitted to  lcap@lvjusd.k12.ca.us
