The Local Control Funding Formula and the Local Control Accountability Plan Irma Villanueva Sr. Director of Educational Projects Hueneme Elementary School District October 2013
2 What it does… Reforms the state’s much criticized funding mechanism. Far greater flexibility on meeting student need. More meaningful stakeholder input during development.
3 Local Control Funding Formula Allocates $2.1 billion in additional funding to school districts and charter schools. Plan is anticipated to be implemented over eight years. The state economy may dictate a longer implementation period. Economic Recovery Target for “Full Implementation” has been determined for each California school district and charter school. Combines Revenue Limit and 42 state Categorical Programs into one revenue stream.
Most State Categorical Programs Eliminated Remaining State Categoricals include: –Special Education –After School Education & Safety –Lottery –Quality Education and Investment Act –Child Nutrition –Preschool Add-ons to LCFF include: –Transportation –Targeted Instruction Improvement Block Grant State Categoricals combined into LCFF: –EIA-LEP –All Tier III Categoricals, including: Instructional Materials Arts and Music BG School and Library Improvement BG Gifted and Talented Education Deferred Maintenance

20 Districts Must Set Annual Goals in Eight Specified Priority Areas Each LCAP must include a school district’s annual goals in each of the eight areas The plans must include both district–wide goals and goals for each numerically significant student subgroup in the district
21 Districts Must Specify Actions They Will Take to Achieve Goals The LCAP must specify the actions the district plans to take to achieve its annual goals. The specified actions must be aligned with the school district’s adopted budget.
22 Districts Must Use the SBE–Adopted LCAP Template Districts are required to use a template developed by SBE. The template is intended to create consistency in LCAPs across the state and assist school districts in developing their plans. The SBE is required to adopt the LCAP template by March 31, 2014
23 Districts Must Solicit Input From Various Stakeholders in Developing Plan The District must consult with its school employees, parents, and students. As part of this consultation process, districts must present their proposed plans to a parent advisory committee and, in some cases, a separate EL parent advisory committee.
24 The advisory committees can review and comment on the proposed plan. Districts must respond in writing to the comments of the advisory committees. Districts also are required to notify members of the public that they may submit written comments regarding the specific actions and expenditures proposed in the LCAP

Cautions about LCFF Funding for the LCFF beyond seven years is uncertain –Sales Tax component of Prop 30 is for 4 years –Income Tax component of Prop 30 is for 7 years There is no requirement for the State to fund the LCFF in any specific time frame. The economy runs in cycles. It is unlikely that California will have 11 consecutive years of “recovery”.
