Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) was enacted in 2013–14, and it replaced the previous kindergarten through grade 12 (K–12) finance system which had been in existence for roughly 40 years. For school districts and charter schools, the LCFF establishes base, supplemental, and concentration grants in place of the myriad of previously existing K–12 funding streams, including revenue limits, general purpose block grants, and most of the 50-plus state categorical programs that existed at the time.
As part of the LCFF, school districts are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) using a template adopted by the California State Board of Education (SBE). The LCAP must describe, for the school district and each school within the district, goals and specific actions to achieve those goals for all pupils and each subgroup of pupils identified in Education Code section 52052, including pupils with disabilities, for each of the state priorities and any locally identified priorities.
Below are Alum Rock Union School District LCAP Goals and Plan.
Provide all students with a rigorous, challenging, and innovative instructional program that prepare them for college-readiness and for excellence in the 21stcentury.
English Learners will have the required skills to reach grade level standards/proficiency.
Provide all students and families a safe, welcoming, and caring environment conducive to learning.
Engage stakeholders in a meaningful way that promotes a positive learning, working, and community environment that is geared toward student achievement
