The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) was designed to correct historical inequities in school funding and increase flexibility, to provide additional resources for schools serving low-income students, English learners and foster youth, increase the level of local decision-making and align budget and accountability plans.
The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) calls for annual goals in eight state priority areas (student achievement, student engagement, other student outcomes, school climate, parental involvement, basic services, course access and implementation of Common Core Standards) and requires districts to identify specific actions to be taken to achieve the goals, specifically for ethnic/racial subgroups, socio-economically disadvantaged students, English learners, students with disabilities and foster youth.
Interested parties are invited to attend a meeting at any school site. Attendees who would like to get further involved can sign up on the District website (www.nhusd.k12.ca.us) to participate as LCFF/LCAP Advisory Committee Members.
