Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)

The 2013/2014 Governor's budget package replaces the previous K–12 finance system with a new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).  Instead of allocating funds for programs and services the state determines are a priority, the LCFF gives local school boards control over how to use funds and resources to improve outcomes and opportunities for all students. The funding model specifically addresses students with greater needs, such as English Learners, Low Income and Foster Youth students. 

The LCFF and the accompanying Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), are new opportunities to engage with our Chico Unified families. The LCFF requires that we study data, consider best practices, understand our own needs, and discuss how to best invest in our students with the resources available to us. Meetings are held on an annual basis (usually in the spring) and public input is gathered during these meetings.
