General LCAP/LCFF Questions
Shela Seaton, Ed.D., Director
Tamara Sanchez, Assistant Superintendent
2013–14 Budget Act and related legislation (Assembly Bill 97 and Senate Bills 97 and 91) made significant changes to the State public school funding system. The legislation introduced the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) which simplifies the funding process and strengthens local accountability. Through the LCFF, local educational agencies (LEAs) will receive funds based on local student demographics.
About Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)
An important component of the LCFF is the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). LEAs will use the State-approved LCAP template to develop a plan that includes annual goals and actions that will be implemented to meet eight State priorities, and describe the related budget. The LCFF requires County Offices of Education to approve the LCAPs and budgets for districts within their county.
