In 2013, low-income communities of color and immigrant communities won the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), a funding law that increases resources for high need students and gives more power to the community. The promise of LCFF has yet to be fully realized, but together, we can make it live up to its potential.
That’s why we launched the #WeMakeLCFFWork community education campaign in February 2020 to make sure families know their rights, are fully engaged in the LCAP process and that their voices are heard by school districts.
Right now, districts and charter schools across the state are creating their new education spending plans (called Local Control Accountability Plans or LCAPs) that must include community input. This is a moment when we can make LCFF work as it was intended: to reverse decades of educational inequity and create the schools that our students deserve.
