How is this funding used?

The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) shows how school districts will use targeted state funding to improve outcomes for all students, especially low income, English Learners, and foster youth.

Schools receive Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) budgets through LCAP, which are spent by the SSCs according to their SPSA.
