Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) represents the most significant change in California's funding system for K-12 schools in four decades. It is the central feature of landmark legislation, Assembly Bill 97, currently being implemented in every California school district. It will affect every school in the state, including charter schools. One goal of the new law is to improve academic outcomes by providing more money to school districts that serve high-needs students. Another goal is to give local school districts and stakeholders more authority to decide how to spend education dollars, and also hold districts accountable for getting results.

The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is an important component of the LCFF. Under the LCFF all school districts and charter schools are required to prepare an LCAP, which describes how they intend to meet annual goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities.

The LCAP Federal Addendum addresses specified federal provisions for receipt of federal funds under Title I, Part A; Title II, Part A; Title III, Part A; and Title IV, Part A of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).  The LCAP Federal Addendum for CUSD was approved by the California Department of Education (CDE) in August 2019 and Districts are not required to submit updated addendums to CDE annually.  However, Districts are encouraged to locally review and update the LCAP Federal Addendum on an annual basis as ESSA funding should be considered in yearly strategic planning.

Community Input:

The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a required component of the Local Control Funding Formula provided by the state of California to local school districts. The LCAP plan is to be written and developed with feedback and input from community stakeholder groups--staff, parents and students were asked to provide input on eight different components of the LCAP plan. Claremont Unified School District formed an LCAP Advisory Council in 2013-2014 consisting of various stakeholder groups to seek advice on the development of the LCAP along with  the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC).  In 2015, a separate District Parent Advisory Committee (DPAC) was formed to provide the district with additional input.  Staff, community, and student surveys are administered annually.  All three committees now meet annually to review data, provide feedback, communication, and suggestions for the LCAP.  In addition, schools gather input from staff, School Site Councils, Booster Groups and PFAs.  For year 3 of the three-year LCAP (2021-2024), a public hearing is scheduled for June 22, 2023.
