Local Control Funding Formula Workshop

About the Workshop

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

  • Effective stakeholder engagement requires clear communication of complex budgetary and operational information
  • 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
  • LCFF is still in transition—K-3 class-size targets change each year, and full implementation is within sight
  • At full implementation, districts must reach their minimum proportionality percentage and funding increases will be limited to cost-of-living adjustments alone

Workshop Topics

As the LCFF is 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—before and after full implementation of the formula
  • Collective bargaining strategies for today that are financialy sound
