The Local Control Funding Formula, or LCFF, is California’s new formula for determining the level of state funding provided to school districts to provide for their general and supplemental programs. LCFF is designed to provide school districts with flexibility to direct resources to meet student needs.
In the LCFF Districts must:
- Clearly define goals and anticipated outcomes.
- Develop goals responsive to the needs of all students, especially low-income, English learners, and foster youth
- Identify and prioritize activities that are responsive to the achieving the goals.
- Ask the questions:
- Will implementing this activity directly address improving student outcome?
- Does this activity address the most critical needs of our students?
- Which group of students will this activity impact?”
- Build budgets that support the goals
- Develop a process for monitoring and communicating progress towards the goals
This is done via development of a Local Accountability Plan, LCAP. Parents, community members, pupils, bargaining units must be engaged and involved in developing, reviewing, and supporting implementation of the LCAP. English Learner parents and Foster youth stakeholders must also be involved.
The Sweetwater Union High School District has developed a Local Accountability Plan (LCAP) that incorporates District goals following the eight state priorities. We are reaching out to seek comment and input by organizing meetings where the various groups will have the opportunity to examine student performance data, surveys, and other data, and evaluate the importance of each District goal by rating each goal. Everyone will also have an opportunity to provide suggestions and comments on each goal.
The following meetings are planned or in process:
- District level parent committee (DAC, DELAC, GATE)
- Parent/Community meetings at every school site
- ASB student representatives
- Bargaining Unit representatives
We look forward to your participation in this effort!
