The California 2013-14 Budget Act and related legislation (Assembly Bill 97, Senate Bill 97, and Senate Bill 91) made significant changes to the State public school funding system. The legislation introduced the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) which simplifies the funding process and strengthens local accountability. Through the LCFF, local educational agencies (LEAs) will receive funds based on local student demographics. The Legislative Analyst's Office Overview of LCFF includes an explanation of the new school funding system.

The Local Control Formula Funding (LCFF) model replaces the previous revenue limit funding model as well as eliminates the discrete funding of the majority of the categorical programs. The formula establishes a base with supplemental and concentration add-ons for English Learners (EL), free and reduced-price meal eligible students and foster youth students, and provides additional funding for K-3 Class Size Reduction, Grades 9-12, Home‑to‑School Transportation, and the Targeted Instructional Improvement Grant (TIIG).

An important component of the LCFF is the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). LEAs will use the State-approved LCAP template to develop a plan that includes annual goals and actions that will be implemented to meet eight State priorities, and describe the related budget. The LCFF requires the County Superintendent of Schools to approve the LCAPs and budgets for districts within their county. Informational materials are available on the Fresno County Office of Education LCAP web page.

Information for Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) Local Educational Agencies are required by the Local Control Funding Formula to develop and adopt a three-year Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) by July 1, 2019. Plans will be updated annually. The LCAP describes how the agencies will address the state and local priorities by setting annual goals for all students and each significant subgroup of students. Also, the actions that will be taken to meet the goals must be included and the adopted budget must be aligned to the actions in the plan.

La Ley de presupuesto 2013-14 de California y la legislación relacionada (Proyecto de ley de la Asamblea 97, Proyecto de ley del Senado 97 y Proyecto de ley del Senado 91) hicieron cambios significativos en el sistema estatal de financiación de escuelas públicas. La legislación introdujo la nueva Fórmula de financiamiento de control local (LCFF) que simplifica el proceso de financiamiento y fortalece la responsabilidad local. A través de la LCFF, las agencias educativas locales (LEA) recibirán fondos basados en las características demográficas de los estudiantes locales. La descripción general de LCFF de la Oficina del Analista Legislativo incluye una explicación del nuevo sistema de financiamiento escolar.

El modelo de financiamiento de fórmula de control local (LCFF, por sus siglas en inglés) reemplaza el modelo de financiamiento de límite de ingresos anterior y elimina el financiamiento discreto de la mayoría de los programas categóricos. La fórmula establece una base con complementos complementarios y de concentración para estudiantes de inglés (EL), estudiantes elegibles para comidas gratuitas y de precio reducido y estudiantes de crianza temporal, y proporciona fondos adicionales para la reducción de tamaño de clase K-3, grados 9-12, inicio Transporte escolar y la subvención de mejora de la instrucción dirigida (TIIG).

Un componente importante de la LCFF es el Plan de Control y Responsabilidad Local (LCAP). Las LEA utilizarán la plantilla LCAP aprobada por el estado para desarrollar un plan que incluya objetivos anuales y acciones que se implementarán para cumplir con las ocho prioridades estatales, y describir el presupuesto relacionado. La LCFF requiere que el Superintendente de Escuelas del Condado apruebe los LCAP y los presupuestos para los distritos dentro de su condado. Los materiales informativos están disponibles en la página web del LCAP de la Oficina de Educación del Condado de Fresno.

Información para Agencias Educativas Locales (LEA) Las Agencias Educativas Locales requieren que la Fórmula de Financiamiento de Control Local desarrolle y adopte un Plan de Responsabilidad y Control Local (LCAP) de tres años para el 1 de julio de 2019. Los planes se actualizarán anualmente. El LCAP describe cómo las agencias abordarán las prioridades estatales y locales al establecer metas anuales para todos los estudiantes y cada subgrupo significativo de estudiantes. Además, las acciones que se tomarán para cumplir los objetivos deben incluirse y el presupuesto adoptado debe estar alineado con las acciones en el plan.
