(Hesperia)– Jovy Yankaskas, Asst. Superintendent, Educational Services, presented a Powerpoint presentation on the Local Control Funding Formula and Local Control Accountability Plan. California dramatically reformed its school reform process in July 2013. The new law, known as Local Control Funding Formula or LCFF, replaces our previous funding system.
Basic points of the LCFF:
Became law in July, 2013
A majority of the funding districts receive is distributed through the LCFF
It represents a great investment in Education by the State
$2 billion for implementation during the first year alone
Implementation will take 8 years, with projected completion during the 2020-21 school year
Each district will receive at least the same funding received during the 2007-08 school year once implementation is complete
No district will receive less than the amount received during the 2007-08 school year
What is Local Control Accountability Plan?
A robust accountability process which is necessary to ensure that program funding improves student achievement
Each district must develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) before July 1, 2014. The plan connects district goals and actions to funding received from the LCFF
County Offices of Education (COE) and the Superintendent of Public Instruction (SPI) will supervise district performance to determine necessary levels of support or intervention
