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.

Community Budget Forums
Each year the Evergreen School District hosts a Community Budget Forum designed to share with the community the district's budget process. During the Forum, the community has the opportunity to better understand the budget process and how the budget is devised, develop an understanding on how legislation impacts the district budget, how to read and understand the district budget and financial reports, develop an understanding as to where Evergreen Dollars are spent and were to find additional resources.
The next Community Budget Forum is scheduled for February 2014. If you are not able to attend the meetings and would like to provide your input on budget priorities, you may email your comments and ideas, along with any questions to email@example.com.

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.
