Student and Parents’ Guide: LCFF and LCAP
The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is the new California school funding law.
The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) directs more funds to districts with the most high-need students and gives local districts more flexibility on how to spend the money they receive. LCFF directs more funds to districts with the most high-need students and gives local districts more flexibility on how to spend the money they receive.
What is the Local Control Funding Formula?
Under LCFF, districts will get the same base funding per student (amount determined by grade level) and will be allocated additional funds to educate special student populations: low-income students, English learners, students who experience homelessness, and students in foster care. Schools who serve high-risk student populations will be able to allocate additional resources to help each and every student succeed.

What is the LCAP?
Districts are required to work with parents and community members to create a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). The three-year plan details the district’s goals for improving student outcomes that are aligned to eight priorities set by the state.
The eight priorities are:
- Basic services, such as credentialed teachers
- Instructional materials aligned with state standards
- Safe, well-maintained facilities
- Programs and services that enable all students to learn to state standards
- Access to a broad course of study that prepares for college and careers
- Improved achievement and outcomes
- Engagement and parent involvement
- School climate
