Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs)

Local Control Funding Formula and Local Control and Accountability

The California 2013-14 Budget Act and related legislation made significant changes to our public school funding system. The legislation introduced the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) which simplifies the funding process and strengthens local accountability. Through the LCFF, local educational agencies (LEAs) receive funds based on local student demographics. The Legislative Analyst's Office Overview of LCFF includes an explanation of the new school funding system.

An important component of the LCFF is the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). LEAs will use the State-approved LCAP template to develop a plan that includes annual goals and actions that will be implemented to meet eight State priorities, and describe the related annual budget. The LCFF requires County Offices of Education to approve the LCAPs and budgets for districts within their county.
