Local Control Funding Formula

What is the Local Control Funding Formula?

The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) represents a significant change in the way California schools are funded. The LCFF replaces the complicated Base Revenue Limit funding model and provides a consistent allocation of dollars to schools based on grade spans and numbers of students who are English learners, low-income, or foster youth. The LCFF, which will take eight years to fully implement, establishes a per student Base Grant target and supplemental funding allocations for high needs students. The following resources should provide answers to many LCFF questions.

The State Board of Education (SBE) and California Department of Education (CDE) are committed to supporting local implementation of LCFF. The LCFF Channel provides Implementation Insight videos for viewing or download to help facilitate local implementation of LCFF are available below.

Budget Advisory Committee

The Evergreen School District will be establishing a Budget Advisory Committee beginning in the 2014-2015 school year. The Committee will be comprised of 15 community members representing the following groups: parents/community members (5), teachers (4), classified employees (3), and administrators (3). Committee members will learn about the District’s budget development process, share information with respective stakeholder groups and make appropriate recommendations for the Superintendent’s consideration in the Budget Development Process.

The Committee will be chaired by the District’s Chief Business Officer (CBO) and will initially meet every other month. The Committee will adopt by-laws to govern membership term and roles and responsibilities. Employees will be selected for membership by their respective associations and parents/community members will be selected by the CBO based on their experience and knowledge of accounting and/or finance.

If you are a parent or community member and are interested in helping get this committee launched, please submit a letter of interest to Nelly Yang, Chief Business Officer at Be sure to include your education and/or experiences in the field of accounting or finance; your experiences, if any, working in schools or the public sector; and your desire for serving.

Please contact Superintendent Gomez ( with any questions.

Proposition 30 (EPA) FY 12-13 Spending Plan and Actual Expenditures

Proposition 30 passed in November 2012 and created the Education Protection Account (EPA). These funds are derived from the incremental tax increase approved by the voters. This means that effective July 2012, the Principal Apportionment received (our District's Revenue Limit funding) was reduced by an amount equal to approximately 21% and will be reallocated back to the District in a restricted form by June 28, 2013. There are specific requirements governing the use of these funds. Per Article XII, § 36 of the Constitution of the State of California, the use of EPA funds must be determined by the Board of Trustees at an open public meeting.

SB 754 Economic Impact Aid

Existing law provides economic impact aid funding to school districts based on the number of economically disadvantaged pupils and English learners enrolled in the school district. Existing law requires the Superintendent of Public Instruction to perform specified calculations to determine the amount of economic impact aid a school district receives for a fiscal year and further requires each school district to expend these funds for specified programs and activities.
