Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) represents the most significant change in California’s funding system for K-12 schools in four decades. It is the central feature of landmark legislation, Assembly Bill 97, currently being implemented in every California school district. It will affect every school in the state, including charter schools. One goal of the new law is to improve academic outcomes by providing more money to school districts that serve high-needs students. Another goal is to give local school districts and stakeholders more authority to decide how to spend education dollars, and also hold districts accountable for getting results. 
The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is an important component of the LCFF. Under the LCFF all school districts and charter schools are required to prepare an LCAP, which describes how they intend to meet annual goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities. Like all other districts in the state, the Golden Plains Unified School Board has to adopt an LCAP on or before July 1, 2014. 

 La Fórmula de Fondos de Control Local (LCFF) y el Plan de Responsabilidad de Control Local (LCAP)La Fórmula de Fondos de Control Local (LCFF) representa el cambio más significativo en el sistema de fondos de California para las escuelas del K-12 en cuatro décadas. Es la característica central de una legislación histórica, Proyecto de Ley 97, que actualmente está siendo implementada en cada distrito escolar en California. Esto afectará a todas las escuelas en el estado, incluyendo las escuelas chárter. Uno de los objetivos de la nueva ley es mejorar los resultados académicos aportando más dinero a los distritos escolares que asisten a estudiantes con altas necesidades. Otro objetivo es dar a los distritos escolares locales y a otros interesados más autoridad para decidir cómo gastar el dinero para la educación, y también para hacer a los distritos aún más responsables de la obtención de los resultados.
El Plan de Responsabilidad de Control Local (LCAP) es un componente importante de la LCFF. Bajo la LCFF todas las escuelas de los distritos y escuelas chárter están obligadas preparar un LCAP, que describe cómo van a cumplir con los objetivos anuales para todos los alumnos, con actividades específicas para abordar las prioridades estatales y locales.  Como todos los otros distritos en el estado, La Junta Escolar del Distrito Unificado Escolar de Golden Plains tiene que adoptar un LCAP en o antes del primero de julio del 2014.
