Local Control Funding Formula Workshop

About the Workshop

We are in an environment of continuing change, with the full implementation of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and recent developments in our accountability system. In light of regulatory requirements and in concert with our Local Control and Accountability Plan, how do we ensure that we are appropriately calculating and managing our LCFF revenues, and how does full implementation of the LCFF affect our operations?

  • Effective stakeholder engagement requires clear communication of complex budgetary and operational information
  • At full implementation, school districts and charter schools must reach their minimum proportionality percentage, which many may find challenging
  • Compliance with new regulatory requirements mandates a deep awareness of the flexibility and limitations for determining use of base grant versus supplemental and concentration grant funds
  • Understanding is crucial to meeting the statutory and regulatory requirements of LCFF implementation, as well as effectively managing the commitment of funds at the bargaining table
  • After full implementation, LCFF funding increases by only a cost-of-living adjustment

Workshop Topics

Now that the LCFF is fully implemented and as revenues from the state slow down, understanding the fundamentals of school finance are more important than ever. This workshop will provide attendees with tools needed to plan for the future, plus:

  • Key elements of the LCFF and a step-by-step explanation of the funding provisions
  • Operational issues, including budgeting and staffing decisions related to LCFF funding levels
  • Multiyear projections using tools to calculate the LCFF and generate illustrative charts and financial trends for making decisions and communicating with stakeholders
  • LCFF accountability provisions and potential audit issues
  • Planning for a future of limited funding increases
  • Financially sound collective bargaining strategies for today
