The Local Control Accountability Plan is a requirement of a new financial state system known as Local Control Funding Formula. The new system will be implemented through state public schools this year.
The new LCFF provides $2.1 billion through Assembly Bill 97 signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown in 2013 with the money going to public schools. .
School districts from throughout California must comply with the LCFF and present annual strategic plans known as Local Control Accountability Plan.
Public school districts must have a plan on how they will spend the money by stating objectives and goals aligned to the funding plan and be accountable for the results the money brings. The LCAP with its objectives and goals must be presented to county and state education officials by the end of June.
The public hearing on the LCAP will be conducted at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 2 at the Patterson Joint Unified School District office, 510 Keystone Blvd.
