Local Control Funding Formula
• Historic reform to education funding
• Redistribution of funds
• Funding based on grade level grants and
demographic data for each district
• Funding targets will be phased in over an estimated
8-year period
• Creates new accountability for how all students are
served, and in particular, sub-groups
4
How is LCFF different from what was in
place under revenue limits?
• Simplifies funding
• Revenue limits and most state categoricals are
eliminated
• Districts, county offices of education, and charter
schools will receive funding based on the students
they serve, with greater flexibility to use these funds
to improve outcomes of students
• Assumes continued state economic growth

Certification of Student Data
• SB 97 requires COEs to “review and validate reported
English learner, foster youth, and free or reduced-price
meal eligible pupil data for school districts and charter
schools under its jurisdiction to ensure the data is reported
accurately.”
• To assist COEs, CALPADS will include school-level reports
that display the aggregate unduplicated counts of
disadvantaged students for each district and charter school
within the county.
• Fall 1 certification deadlines were mid-December 2013.
Close of amendment window will be March 21, 2014

Supplemental/Concentration
Grant Funds
Supplemental and Concentration Grant Funds are
generated by the number of English Learner (EL), Low
Income (LI) and Foster Youth (FY) students in the district,
charter, or county office of education. Collectively, these
students are referred to as “unduplicated pupils” in the
statute and regulations.
Regulations adopted by January 31, 2014:
– Will require district, county office of education or charter to
“increase or improve services for EL/LI/FY pupils as
compared to the services provided to all pupils in proportion
to the increase in funds apportioned on the basis of the
number and concentration of unduplicated pupils.”
10
Definition of Services
“Services” as used in Education Code section
42238.07 may include, but are not limited to, services
associated with the delivery of instruction,
administration, facilities, pupil support services,
technology, and other general infrastructure necessary
to operate and deliver educational instruction and
related services.
11
Proportionality Percentage Estimates
• The State Board of Education provides regulations
that describe the methodology of determining the
proportional increase or improvement in services for
unduplicated pupils.
• LEAs will estimate their proportion using current and
accurate local enrollment projections performed in the
spring for use in their LCAP adoption process.
– ADA, by grade level
– Total enrollment
– Total unduplicated pupils
12
Calculating the Proportionality Percentage
For Districts and Charters, begin with the LCFF
projected revenues (excluding Transportation and
TIIG):
• Calculate the estimated 2014-15 LCFF Funding
Target
• Calculate the estimated 2014-15 Total LCFF
Funding
13
Calculating the Proportionality Percentage
1. Calculate the LCFF supplemental and concentration grant targets,
at full implementation
2. Determine prior year expenditures to support unduplicated pupils.
 No less than the amount of EIA expended in 2012-13
3. Subtract the estimated 2013-14 expenditures from the
supplemental and concentration grant target.
4. Multiply the difference by the gap percentage funding for the year in
which the LCAP is adopted (funded portion of increase in funding
generated by unduplicated count)
14
Calculating the Proportionality Percentage
(continued)
5.
6.
7.
8.
15
Add to the LEA’s prior year estimated expenditures from step 2 (total
amount of LCFF funding identified for use for unduplicated count)
Subtract the amount in step 5 from the total LCFF funding in 2014-15
(total amount of LCFF funding available for use for all students)
Divide the approximate amount from step 5 by the amount in
step 6 (the Proportionality Percentage, the % that must be used to
improve or increase services for the unduplicated count over what is
provided to all students)
When the LCFF is fully implemented statewide (or if your prior year’s
expenditures equal or exceed the funded S&C Grants), then the
Proportionality Percentage is the total S&C grants divided by the
remainder of the LCFF funding, excluding add-ons for TIIG and H-S
Transportation.

Important Considerations
• The amount of revenue limit and categorical funds
in 2012-13 is the starting point for LCFF.
– No LEA will receive less than this amount.
• Total revenues received will fluctuate proportionate
to changes in ADA and changes in unduplicated
pupils.
• Full implementation of LCFF is estimated to occur
over an 8-year period.

Section 1: Stakeholder Engagement
A governing board of a school district shall
consult with teachers, principals,
administrators, other school personnel,
local bargaining units of the school
district, parents, and pupils in developing
a local control and accountability plan.
[EC 52060(g)]
23
Definition of “consult”
The determination of curriculum content, the selection of
instructional materials, and the use of instructional
technology are subject to the duty to "consult" under
Government Code Section 3543.2(a).
"Consultation" (also known as "meet and confer") involves
the free exchange of information, opinions, informal
proposals, and recommendations according to orderly
procedures in a conscientious effort to incorporate such
recommendations into the resulting policy or plan.
24
The Fiscal Report (2013)
School Services of California, Inc.
Obligation to “negotiate”
While LEAs have an obligation to "consult," they do
not have an obligation to "meet and negotiate"
implementation decisions. "Establishing educational
policies, goals and objectives," "determining
curriculum," and "establishing budgetary priorities and
allocations" are all fundamental management
prerogatives not within the mandatory scope of
bargaining…
25
The Fiscal Report (2013)
School Services of California, Inc.
Obligation to “negotiate”
(continued)
However, if such decisions would have a
foreseeable impact on negotiable "terms and
conditions of employment" for bargaining unit
members, a school district or COE is required to
negotiate the "effects" or "impacts" of these
decisions on negotiable subjects, including for
example, hours of employment and compensation for
professional development.

pupils must be increased or improved as compared to the
services provided to all pupils in the LCAP year as calculated

qualitative description of the increased and/or improved services
for unduplicated pupils as compared to the services provided to

LCAP and Other Plans
• LCAP is a comprehensive planning tool.
• LEAs may reference and describe actions and

• The information in the LCAP, or annual update, may

59
LEA Plans
• LCAP does not replace LEA Plans which are still

• The SBE will take steps to minimize duplication of
effort at the local level to the greatest extent
possible.
• LEAs in Program Improvement must continue to
meet current LEA Plan requirements.
60
School Site Plans
• Specific actions included in the LCAP, or the
annual update of the LCAP, must be consistent
