With the new funding system's increased flexibility comes a requirement that districts engage stakeholders, including parents, in developing a Local Control and Accountability Plan. This is a three-year plan focused on state and local priorities that describes goals, actions, services and expenditures to support student achievement.

County offices of education, including LACOE, play a role in reviewing the LCAPs, which must be developed and locally approved each year by July 1.

LACOE has updated the “eLCAP” online template and review system to assist districts in L.A. County with this process. The system is available to local education agencies for use in developing the three-year LCAP, including the Annual Update, using the revised State Board-approved template.

LEAs that used the LACOE eLCAP last year may automatically roll over information from their prior year's plan into the required sections of the template. The updated eLCAP system, aligned to the new state board approved LCAP template,  is available at

California’s new approach to funding public schools represents the most significant education finance reform in four decades. Adopted in 2013, the Local Control Funding Formula streamlines the system and gives school districts more flexibility in how to spend their resources to promote student achievement.

Previously, districts received state funds per student based on a complicated “revenue limit” formula. In addition, much of the funding was restricted and earmarked for specific “categorical” programs.

Under LCFF, all local education agencies are funded using the same formula. It starts with a base amount per student that is adjusted for grade level and demographics. It also eliminates most of the restrictions on use of funds for categorical programs.
