Dear County and District Superintendents and Charter School Administrators:
The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) supplemental grant is based on an unduplicated count of students enrolled on Census Day who meet one of the disadvantaged student eligibility criteria: Free or Reduced Price Lunch (FRPM) eligible (which includes being a migrant, foster, or homeless student), an English learner, or a Foster youth. A student may be designated as FRPM-eligible by an approved National School Lunch Program (NSLP) application, an Alternative Household Income form, or by being directly certified through a local process or the state process conducted July through November 2014.
Recognizing that using CALPADS Fall 1 data in the LCFF supplemental grant calculation has been a transition for local educational agencies (LEAs), the following adjustment will be made to LEA 2013–14 unduplicated disadvantaged student counts:
If you have any questions regarding CALPADS, please contact the CALPADS Service Desk. The preferred method for reaching the service desk is through the Web form in CALPADS, or at http://www2.cde.ca.gov/CALPADSHELP/DEFAULT.ASPX, or through e-mail at email@example.com. The service desk may also be reached by phone at 916-325-9210.
