Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)
and
Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)


Dear Village Community,

This year the state implemented a new method of funding public schools called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). The LCFF has been passed by legislation to provide a more equitable, rational and efficient approach to allocating resources to all School Districts. This formula is structured to do what the name implies – allow local insight and meaningful conversations from parents, employees, and the community of their schools.

Another new component to this process is the Local Control Accountability Plan.  To ensure that the funding is targeted at the needs of all students at The Village Charter School as well as the identified subgroups of English Learners, Socio-disadvantaged, and Foster Youth, VCS will begin the process of developing a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).

As an involved partner with our school, I invite you to share your input and perspective based on the following Eight Priorities established by the California Department of Education for the LCAP, and also provide suggestions you feel will assist us to provide an optimum learning environment for VCS students. Below, you will find a link to a survey and responding should only take a few moments of your time. Your input into this survey will be taken into consideration while developing the school’s Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).

I also invite you to attend a stakeholders meeting on Monday, May 5th at 5:30 in the break out room at VCS. At this meeting the 8 priorities of the LCAP will be discussed through a PowerPoint presentation and empathy based questions that focus on student engagement will be presented and discussed.

Your time is sincerely appreciated!

Eight State Priority Areas for LCAP

The eight areas for which school districts, with parent and community input, must establish goals and actions. This must be done both district-wide and for each school.

The areas are:

Basic Services
1.     Providing all students access to fully credentialed teachers, instructional materials that align with state standards, and safe facilities

Implementation of Common Core 
2.     Implementation of California’s academic standards, including the Common Core State Standards in English- language arts and math, Next Generation Science Standards, English language development, history-social science, visual and performing arts, health education and physical education standards

Parent Involvement
3.     Parent involvement and participation, so the local community is engaged in the decision-making process and the educational programs of students

Pupil Achievement
4.     Improving student achievement and outcomes along multiple measures, including test scores, English proficiency and college and career preparedness

Pupil Engagement
5.     Supporting student engagement, including whether students attend school or are chronically absent

School Climate
6.     Highlighting school climate and connectedness through a variety of factors, such as suspension and expulsion rates and other locally identified means

Course Access
7.     Ensuring each student has access to classes that prepare them for college and careers, regardless of what school they attend or where they live

Other Student Outcomes
8.     Measuring other important student outcomes related to required areas of study, including P.E. and the arts
