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 through the CALPADS Service Request Form, or through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. The service desk may also be reached by phone at 916-325-9210.
