Under LCFF, all local education agencies are funded using the same formula. It starts with a base amount per student that is adjusted for grade level and demographics. It also eliminates most of the restrictions on use of funds for categorical programs.

With the new funding system's increased flexibility comes a requirement that districts engage stakeholders, including parents, in developing a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). This is a three-year plan focused on state and local priorities that describes goals, actions, services and expenditures to support student achievement.
