LOCAL CONTROL FUNDING FORMULA (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

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!
