In June of 2013, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law one of the most significant changes to the way California’s school districts are funded. This new system – the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) – changes the way the State of California allocates funds to school districts. The LCFF provides base funding for all students as well as supplemental and concentration funding to support students from low income families, English Learners and foster youth. The LCFF went into effect as of July 1, 2013.
Under the new funding rules, school districts are required to adopt a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) that describes the actions, services and expenditures that support student growth. The LCAP clarifies how programs/services will be measurably improved in quantity or quality, proportionate to the increase in funding. It also requires the engagement of parents, staff, students and other stakeholders in the building of the LCAP. The LCAP is a three year plan that must be adopted by July 1, 2014, and updated each year.
EGUSD LCAP Survey
EGUSD is in the process of building the LCAP. To help the District in this process, a LCAP survey has been created. To take the online survey, visit http://blogs.egusd.net/lcff-lcap/survey/
