California School Districts New Funding Mechanism

This year California Public Schools will experience a new funding mechanism with the intent to restore funding levels for educating our youth and once again making California schools number one in the nation.  The intent is also to direct financial resources to population of students who require additional services which will allow them to be competitive in our multi-cultural world.  For the South Monterey County region that population is specifically English Learners and low Socio-economic populations.

But, this new mechanism doesn’t come without adding to the alphabet soup of education.  The new funding mechanism is titled Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).  To secure the funding necessary to provide programs and services, each school district must develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).  You were warned about alphabet soup.  There is a process in developing the LCAP and it involves the community.  Each school district in California will have an opportunity for public input into the plan and more information will be forthcoming on when those will be held in our region. 

Immediately, as the plan is being structured each school district needs to seek comments from the community via a community survey. Because so many of the families served by the King City and Greenfield Union School Districts are also a part of the South Monterey County Joint Union High School District we have joined together with one survey.  Via the mechanism best for each district, parents will receive the survey.  You will be asked for which district you are responding . . . for parents and guardians with students in both the elementary and high school district you will indicate both.  The surveys are due back no later than March 17, 2014.  The information will be compiled and used in the development of the LCAP for the respective district.  Surveys may be done electronically or in written form.  

Your input is valued in this process and together we look forward to hearing your comments.
