The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) became California's school funding structure in 2013-14. It provides funding for all students, and additional funding for districts who serve a large population of Foster Youth, Low Income and English Learner students. The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) explains how the district will use the additional funds to support identified students and provide them with an equal opportunity to succeed.
