LET’S PLAN… Together

Local Control Funding Formula/Local Control and Accountability Plan

California state law sets out the system for funding public schools. State leaders largely decide how much money is available to schools each year as part of the state budget process.

Last spring, California adopted a new formula for deciding how much money each school district gets, called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). School districts will decide how to use the funds, but under the new system they must get input from their local communities. They also have to tie their budgets to improvement goals by creating a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).

The Local Control and Accountability Plan is a critical part of the new Local Control Funding Formula. The plan will be based on Lawndale Elementary School District’s goals and student data collected in order to describe specific actions the district will take to achieve those goals. In the next few months, we will be engaging parents, educators, employees and the community to establish this plan. The LCAP will also focus on eight areas identified as state priorities. The plan will also demonstrate how the district’s budget will help achieve the goals, and assess each year how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes.
