​What is the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)?

In 2013, 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).

    

How does the LCFF compare to the old school funding system?

Actual funding will depend on district's prior revenue levels along with other factors. ERT – Economic Recovery Target means no district will receive less money than under the old system. Most will receive more.

Under both systems, the Governor and the Legislature are mostly responsible for determining annually how much funding schools will receive through the state budget process.

Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF):


  • Collapses over 20 categorical programs (funds earmarked by the state for different types of uses with spending restrictions). However, some categorical programs remain, including special education, afterschool programs, school lunches, transportation and TIIG (Targeted Instructional Improvement Grant).
  • Shifts decision-making to the school district level with flexibility for local communities to decide how to best spend resources.

  • Requires that districts must use supplemental and concentration funds to "increase or improve services for English Learners, low income and foster youth pupils."
  • Requires districts to adopt Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs) that show how funds will be spent to provide high-quality educational programs and improve student outcomes.
  • Implementation begins in 2013-14 and will be phased in over an eight-year period.
