Local Control Funding Formula is Closing Achievement Gap
Recent research shows that the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), California’s 2013 legislation that prioritizes increased funding for certain groups of disadvantaged students, is working as intended. The funding formula was implemented to address the achievement gap by lowering the student-to-teacher ratio and increasing resources for schools that serve low-income, English-language learners, special needs and foster care students. And the preliminary data shows the achievement gap is closing among these groups! The research highlights the academic gains made by students in these categories, specifically low-income students. With 32% or 95,629 of San Mateo County students considered low-income, we hope to see better academic outcomes for this group of students.
