Local Control Funding (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).

As a parent, your voice matters more than ever. LCFF requires school districts to involve parents in planning and decision making, and asks the community to work together to ensure our kids graduate and have a better future.
This a huge opportunity for us as parents to shape the vision for our children's education and make it happen. Now is the time to engage!
