Local Control Funding Formula & Accountability Plans

What are the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) & Local Control Accountability Plans (LCAP)?

The law creating the Local Control Funding Formula specified eight areas of student achievement, school improvement and metrics associated with them that districts must address.  The State Board has grouped the eight priorities into three categories; Basic Conditions, Pupil Outcomes, and Engagement.  Districts must address the priorities for all students and for student subgroups, particularly low-income, English learners and foster youth. Under LCFF, California funds school districts, charter schools, and county offices of education equally per student with adjustments based on grade levels and demographic characteristics.  LCFF replaces complexity in favor of equity, transparency, and performance.

California's 2013-2014 Budget Act included landmark legislation that greatly simplifies the state's school finance system.  Under the new funding rules, school districts are required to adopt Local Control Accountability Plans (LCAP) that describes the actions, services, and expenditures that support student growth.  The LCAP clarifies how programs/services will be measurably improved in quantity or quality, proportionate to the increase in funding.  It also requires the engagement of parents, staff, students and other stakeholders in the building of the LCAP.  The LCAP is a three-year plan that must be adopted by July 1, and updated each year.  The LCFF is the new formula that California will use to fund its public schools.

Title III

Title III is officially known as the Language Instruction for English Learner and Immigrant Students Act. Section 3102 lists the purpose of the law. The overarching purpose is to ensure that English learner (EL) students, including immigrant children and youth, attain English language proficiency (ELP) and meet the same challenging state academic standards that other students are expected to meet.

LEAs must use Title III funds to supplement state language instruction educational programs, designed to assist EL students’ achievement goals. The state educational agency (SEA), LEAs, and schools are accountable for increasing the ELP and core academic content knowledge of EL students.
