In 2013, the state of California adopted a new formula for funding public education called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). When fully implemented, the LCFF will allocate funds based on specific student needs and will allow maximum flexibility at a local level.
As part of the LCFF, school districts must develop, adopt and annually update a three-year plan called The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).
The LCAP is to be written and developed with feedback and input from community stakeholder groups. Staff, parents and students will be asked to provide input on eight different components of the LCAP.
Stakeholders are invited to provide input into the LCAP revision by completing a post-webinar survey. The link to the survey can be found on the district’s website at http://bit.ly/1KQCIRJ.
“The input of our parents and community is extremely important to this process,” Terry Deloria, Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services said.
