California’s Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), a 2013 law that restructures the way the State funds education, fundamentally restructures the relationship between the State and school districts. Its overarching goal is to fund districts according to the cost of educating students in that district; increase their flexibility to make critical decisions on how resources are used; increase their accountability by requiring districts to develop plans that detail how they will improve educational outcomes; and increase parental involvement.
