In 2013, California adopted a new formula for deciding how much money each school district gets, called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). As part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), school districts are required to develop, adopt, and annually update a three-year Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). With parent and community input, school districts must establish goals and actions for the entire district as well as for each school. The plans will demonstrate how each school district’s budget will help achieve the goals and annually assess how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes.

Regulations for implementation of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) require that each district hold an LCAP public hearing in advance and at a separate meeting from its adoption, which we have scheduled for the June 17, 2014 Board Meeting. There will be LCAP hearings on May 20th and June 3rd Board Meetings. Also at the June 3rd Board Meeting will be a public hearing for the budget.
The intent of the LCAP hearing is to allow for public comment and recommendations regarding the specific actions proposed to be included in the LCAP plan. The regulation also requires separate public hearings for the LCAP and the budget. Further, the regulations require that the public hearing for the budget be held at the same meeting as a public hearing for the LCAP.
