Local Control Funding Formula

Governor Brown signed into law a new way to distribute money to California school districts. Known as the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), it is the most comprehensive reform to California’s school funding system in 40 years. With LCFF, school districts serving high-needs students receive more funds, based on the number and percentages of high-needs students they serve. Supplemental LCFF money will support students who need it most, such as low-income students (as measured by their eligibility for free or reduced-price lunch), children in foster care and students learning the English language.

To make sure all students—especially low-income students, English learners and foster youth—will be served well by this new funding, each district must set goals and show growth in eight priority areas.  The goals and actions to achieve them must be created with input from community, parents, students and staff.  These goals and actions are called the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).  It will be updated every year.


The eight priorities fall into three broad areas:

A. Conditions of Learning
  • Basics: good teachers, curriculum and facilities.
  • State Standards:  all education must meet state standards.
  • Course Access:  all students can take the courses they need.
B. Pupil Outcomes
  • Student Achievement: measured by how students score on standardized tests; how many learn English, pass the Advanced Placement tests and are prepared for college.
  • Other Student Outcomes: measured by how students do in their classes.
C. Engagement
  • Parent Involvement: parent input and participation.
  • Student Engagement: measured by attendance, dropout and graduation rates.
  • School Climate: measured by suspensions and expulsions, safety and connectedness
