CALIFORNIA’S NEW EDUCATION FUNDING FORMULA: What is it? Who benefits? What does it mean for students? How can I get involved?

Publication date: Dec 3, 2013

In July 2013, California dramatically reformed the way we fund our schools. The new law, the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), replaces an outdated and unfair education funding system. In this guide, we provide parents and community leaders with the information they need to ensure that LCFF is not just about local control and flexibility, but also——and most importantly——about educational justice.

To access this community guide and additional information about LCFF in multiple languages, go to the FairShare4Kids.org website. You will also find:

LCFF Explainer Videos;
District Funding Data Tool;
LCFF One-Page Overview (English, Spanish & Chinese);
LCFF Community PowerPoint Presentation;
Advocacy Letter Campaign Tool.

The FairShare4Kids Campaign is a coalition of organizations including Alliance for a Better Community, Alliance San Diego, Californians for Justice, Community Coalition, Congregations Organized for Prophetic Engagement, The Education Trust——West, Families in Schools, Great Oakland Public Schools Leadership Center, National Center for Youth Law, Reading and Beyond, Students for Education Reform, and United Way Los Angeles committed to working together to make sure that Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) lives up to its promise and provides additional resources to low-income students, English Learners and foster youth.
