Decorative Montage of words related to LCAPThe Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) represents a major change in how California supports local education agencies. It provides new decision-making authority to districts, empowering them to act based on the needs they see for students and provides for increased opportunities to close the achievement gap. This shifts the state from treating school funding as “input to support students” to “resources that are linked to performance expectations.”

Complementing these changes is the newly revised Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP is the Funding Formula’s vehicle for transparency, equity in opportunity, and engagement. Through the development of their LCAPs, districts are expected to articulate and share their performance data, needs, actions, and anticipated outcomes that are guiding their use of state funding. Performance data is gathered from a variety of sources including the California School Dashboard which reports on both state and local indicators.
