Hesperia Unified School District
June 12, 2017
Companions in Changing School
California is a leader in changing school funding to address the needs of
the state’s most disadvantaged students: Foster youth, low-income
children and English language learners. Through the Local Control
Funding Formula (LCFF), the state is providing local school districts
more flexibility in using funds for these students in exchange for more
accountability from districts.
The LCAP is the state’s mechanism for ensuring that supplemental and
concentration grant funds for these targeted groups of students are used
in alignment with the district’s goals for all students and that the district’s
goals are in alignment with California’s Eight State Priority Areas for
public schools.
