This LCFF Implementation video provides a brief overview of the LCFF Permanent Spending Regulations and LCAP Template.
California’s 2013-14 Budget Act included landmark legislation that greatly simplifies the state’s school finance system. The changes introduced by the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) represent a major shift in how California funds Local Educational Agencies (LEAs). For nearly 40 years, California has relied on a system that included general purpose funding (known as revenue limits) and more than 50 tightly defined categorical programs to provide state funding to LEAs. Under LCFF, California funds school districts, charter schools, and county offices of education equally per student with adjustments based on grade levels and demographic characteristics. LCFF replaces complexity in favor of equity, transparency, and performance.
The State Board of Education (SBE) and California Department of Education (CDE) are committed to supporting local implementation of LCFF. Through this site comments and questions about LCFF implementation may be provided. In addition, the LCFF Channel provides Implementation Insight videos for viewing or downloading to help facilitate local implementation of LCFF. New videos are posted regularly so please check back regularly or sign-up to receive notifications when new videos are posted.
