Press Release

We represent a coalition of civil rights, advocacy, community, parent, student and other organizations who have worked diligently on passage and implementation of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). LCFF creates an historic opportunity to focus resources on helping California’s neediest students overcome the barriers they face in closing the achievement gap and graduating college and career ready. It also promises a new level of transparency and local engagement for parents, students, and community members in the design of their local schools. As you know, in an effort to give life to  objectives, we have commented jointly multiple times over the last seven years regarding the State Board of Education’s LCFF regulatory proposals and accountability system items. We are committed to strengthening California’s current K-12 school funding and accountability system to realize its promise of creating a more equitable school system
