The State of California uses the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) to fund schools. A requirement of all Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) is the development of a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) which explains how the funding the State provides is being used. The LCAP is approved annually by the Board of Directors in June.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the State of California has temporarily lifted the requirement of all Local Educational Agencies to annually complete a Local Control Accountability Plan. Instead, the Local Educational Agencies are to complete a Learning Continuity and Attendance Plan which addresses the measures schools and districts will take to address the educational impacts of pandemic-related building closures and transitions to distance learning.
