The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) was enacted with the passage of the 2013–14 Budget Act, replacing the previous K–12 finance system with a new funding formula. The new formula for school districts and charter schools (LEAs) is composed of uniform base grants by grade span (K–3, 4–6, 7–8, 9–12) and includes additional funding for targeted students.
The LCFF will be phased in over a number of years. Until the LCFF is fully implemented, LEAs will receive an entitlement known as the LCFF Transition Entitlement. For most LEAs, it is based on an LEA’s 2012–13 funding level, adjusted for changes in student population, plus an additional amount each year to bridge the gap between prior funding levels and the new LCFF target levels.
The LCFF Funding Snapshot is generated for the First Principal Apportionment (February Certification) and updated at the Second Principal Apportionment (June Certification) and Annual Apportionment (February Certification of the next fiscal year).
The Snapshot data will not be updated after the Annual Apportionment. Detailed funding information for each period is contained in the Principal Apportionment funding exhibits, available on the
Principal Apportionment Web page [http://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/aa/pa/]. At each certification of the Principal Apportionment, the calculations and funding data from the previous certification are superceeded.
The Snapshot is a two page document that can be exported to an Excel or PDF document. Brief descriptions of the components included in the Snapshot are available on the second page.
