Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)

One of the key elements of the new funding formula is the identification of certain disadvantaged student populations in the calculation of funding amounts to local educational agencies (LEAs). Specifically, the LCFF includes supplemental and concentration grants for disadvantaged students. Disadvantaged students are those classified as:

  • English Learners (ELs),
  • students who are eligible to receive a Free or Reduced Price Meal (FRPM),
  • students identified as Foster Youth, or any combination of these factors (unduplicated count).

California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS) data will provide the basis for determining the unduplicated count of these student populations.
