Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)

The California 2013–14 Budget Act and related legislation (Assembly Bill 97, Senate Bill 97, and Senate Bill 91) made significant changes to the state public school funding system. The legislation introduced the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) which simplifies the funding process and strengthens local accountability. Through the LCFF, local educational agencies (LEAs) will receive funds based on local student demographics. The Legislative Analyst's Office Overview of LCFF includes an explanation of the new school funding system.

An important component of the LCFF is the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). LEAs will use the state-approved LCAP template to develop a plan that includes annual goals and actions that will be implemented to meet eight state priorities, and describe the related budget. The LCFF requires County Offices of Education to approve the LCAPs and budgets for districts within their county. Contact the Sacramento County Office of Education with questions about LCFF and LCAP.

​The Local Control Funding Formula requires that information be made available to the public regarding how state funds are spent. Following approval from both the local governing boards and SCOE, final LCAPs (including any necessary updates and revisions) are​ available for the following:

"Today, I’m signing a bill that is truly revolutionary. We are bringing government closer to the people, to the classroom where real decisions are made, and directing the money where the need and the challenge is greatest. This is a good day for California, it’s a good day for school kids and it’s a good day for our future." Governor Jerry Brown
