Charter School Authorizing and Monitoring

LCFF and LCAP Information

The new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) state regulations are in effect for all school districts and charter schools starting in the 2013-14 school year. Each school district and charter school is required to put into place an LCAP development process that places a high degree of parent and community involvement setting the goals, action steps, and funding allocation based on student needs, with emphasis on low income students, foster youth, and English learners. The development of the district or charter school budget must be tied to the specific action steps identified in the LCAP. 


The California State Board of Education completed the permanent regulations on November 14, 2014. All school districts and charter schools need to review the progress on goals and the services identified in their LCAP annually and make revisions based on input form all stakeholder groups. Charter schools may modify the LCAP template to meet the grade levels services, the nature of the program, and the statutory requirements of charter schools (Ed. Code 47605, 47605.5, and 47606.5).   For more information about the LCAP and LCFF legislation and the requirements, click on the links below:
