Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is being used to develop the LCAP – Local Control and Accountability Plan.
The LCFF significantly changes the funding formula for school districts — more money is attached to students who are under- performing. The LCFF identifies three categories of students requiring greater resources:
1) students who qualify for free or reduced priced meals,
2) students who are English Learners, and
3) foster youth.
Together, more than 60% of Del Norte’s students are among the population that fall into these categories, and for which the state will now provide additional need-based revenue to the district.
There is a survey that community members can take to give input on how the School District uses that funding.
