Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)
Explanation of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)
To give you a visual of the new funding model, the picture here shows how the funding might look for three school districts with different student populations. The first example shows a district with no English learner (EL) or Low Income (LI) students. They essentially receive only the base grant funding for all of their students.
The second example shows a district with 55% of their students who qualify as EL or LI. They receive the base grant for all of their students, and a supplemental grant for the 55% of students who are EL or LI. This district receives more funding than the first district to assist them with providing additional services to meet their students’ needs.
The last district example shows a district that has a student population over 55% - 65% and is very similar to VUSD. This district receives base grant funding for all of their students, supplement funding for all of their EL and LI students, as well as concentration grant funding for those 2 students beyond the 55% level. As shown on the chart, this estimated amount is $3,779 per student.
**NOTE: The Supplemental grant is 20% of the base grant and Concentration is 50% of the base grant. Although this slide demonstrates the new funding model, the base grant number is inaccurate. In 2021, it is projected to be $7,557.
