Charter School Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) Funding

Charter school LCFF funding provides charter schools with funding, based on average daily attendance (ADA) and the provisions in the new LCFF, established by Assembly Bill (AB) 97 (Chapter 47, Statutes of 2013), as amended by Senate Bill 91 (Chapter 49, Statutes of 2013), and amended by Senate Bill 97 (Chapter 357, Statutes of 2013). The charter school LCFF funding is calculated as one entitlement amount and, with some exceptions funded from a combination of state and local revenues.

Allocation Formula The 2013-14 charter school general purpose funding under the LCFF model is calculated in accordance with EC sections 42238.02-42238.03. Because the LCFF formula will not be fully implemented until the 2013-14 second period apportionment which will be paid in July 2014, the preliminary allocations are based on funding rules in effect prior to the LCFF funding model.
