For the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) to fulfill its promise of closing opportunity and achievement gaps, stakeholders – especially those advocating for English Learners, foster youth and low-income students – must actively engage in the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) process. In order to support advocates in this work, The Education Trust-West has updated a number of our LCFF- and LCAP-related resources. These resources include:

  • LCFF: Just the Facts – one-page flyer
  • Learning the Ropes: Equity Opportunities in California Education Funding and School Accountability – PowerPoint presentation
  • Making Sense out of Dollars and Cents: Understanding District Budgets – toolkit website
  • LCAPWatch.org – library of approved LCAPs for all California districts and LCAP-related resources

We also want to hear what you need to help you engage in your community’s LCAP process! Please complete our 5-minute survey to tell us how we can better support your work with tools and resources.
