New Report on LCFF in Year 3
The Local Control Funding Formula Research Collaborative (LCFFRC) recently released Paving the Way to Equity and Coherence? The Local Control Funding Formula in Year 3. This report seeks to inform policymakers and others about ways in which LCFF implementation is changing fundamental aspects of resource allocation and governance in California’s K-12 education system. The report surfaces challenges including that many districts had difficulty fostering meaningful stakeholder engagement, and some found the LCFF and Common Core State Standards (CCSS) to be competing policy priorities. The report also surfaces questions about how resource allocation decisions were made and whether LCFF dollars are reaching targeted populations. Access the report here.
