LCFF, LCAP and California Dashboard

Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)

Effective with the 2013-14 fiscal year, school finance was reformed with the most significant change in over 40 years. The new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) replaces the former general purpose funding (known as revenue limits) and most strictly defined categorical programs. Essentially the new formula consists of base grants plus additional supplemental and concentration grants targeted for services to low-income, English learner, and foster youth students. Additionally the reform establishes the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), a spending plan, which must be adopted concurrently with a local educational agency’s (LEA’s) budget.

Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)

The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a critical part of the new state Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). Each school district, charter school, or county office of education must engage parents, educators, employees and the community to establish these plans. The plans will describe the overall vision for students, annual goals and specific actions to achieve the vision and goals. Each LCAP will focus on eight areas identified as state priorities for school districts and charter schools and ten areas identified as state priorities for county offices of education. The plans will also demonstrate how the districts’, charters’, or county offices’ budgets will help achieve the goals, and assess each year how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes.

California Dashboard

The California School Dashboard is an online tool designed to help communities across the state access important information about K–12 schools and districts. The Dashboard features easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success. The Dashboard is just one step in a series of changes that have raised the bar for student learning, transformed testing, and increased the focus on equity. For more information watch the video.
