Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) & The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
It is an exciting time in education, particularly in the Montecito Union School District. As you are aware, the state implemented a new method of funding public schools called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). The LCFF has been passed by legislation to provide a more equitable, rational and efficient approach to allocating resources to all School Districts. This formula is structured to do what the name implies – allow local insight and meaningful conversations from parents, employees, and the community of their schools.
Another new component to this process is the Local Control Accountability Plan. To ensure that the funding is targeted at the needs of all students in MUS as well as the identified subgroups of English Learners, Socio-disadvantaged, and Foster Youth, the District will begin the process of developing a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).
As an involved partner with our district, I invite you to share your “input” and perspective based on the following Eight Priorities established by the California Department of Education for the LCAP, and also provide suggestions you feel will assist us to provide an optimum learning environment for students in the Montecito Union School District. Your input into this survey will be taken into consideration while developing the school district’s Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP):
