Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) & Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) – Inglewood USD

What is the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)? 

California state law sets out the system for funding public schools. State leaders largely decide how much money is available to schools each year as part of the state budget process. 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, parents, students, teachers, administrators, and staff. They also have to tie their budgets to improvement goals by creating a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).

What is the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)? 

The LCAP is a critical part of the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).Each school district must engage parents, educators, employees and the community to establish these plans. The plans will describe the school district’s overall vision for students, annual goals and specific actions the district will take to achieve the vision and goals. The LCAPs must focus on eight areas identified as state priorities. The plans will also demonstrate how the district’s budget will help achieve the goals, and assess each year how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes.
