Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)
The California 2013-14 Budget Act and related legislation (Assembly Bill 97, Senate Bill 97, and Senate Bill 91) made significant changes to the State public school funding system. The legislation introduced the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) which simplifies the funding process and strengthens local accountability. Through the LCFF, local educational agencies (LEAs) will receive funds based on local student demographics. The Legislative Analyst's Office Overview of LCFFincludes an explanation of the new school funding system.
The Local Control Formula Funding (LCFF) model replaces the previous revenue limit funding model as well as eliminates the discrete funding of the majority of the categorical programs. The formula establishes a base with supplemental and concentration add-ons for English Learners (EL), free and reduced-price meal eligible students and foster youth students, and provides additional funding for K-3 CSR, Grades 9-12, Home‑to‑School Transportation, and the Targeted Instructional Improvement Grant (TIIG).
An important component of the LCFF is the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). LEAs will use the State-approved LCAP template to develop a plan that includes annual goals and actions that will be implemented to meet eight State priorities, and describe the related budget. The LCFF requires the County Superintendent of Schools to approve the LCAPs and budgets for districts within their county.
Education Code 52065 (b) (1) & (2) states “ A county superintendent of schools shall do all of the following: (1) Post on the Internet Web site of the county office of education any local control and accountability plan approved by the county board of education, and any updates or revisions to a local control and accountability plan approved by the county board of education. (2) Post all local control and accountability plans submitted by school districts, or links to those plans, on the Internet Web site of the county office of education.”
