Funding Description

The Learning Communities for School Success Program (LCSSP) provides funds to local education agencies (LEAs) to support programs aimed at improving student outcomes by reducing truancy and supporting students who are at risk of dropping out of school or are victims of crime. The LCSSP is the result of Proposition 47, which reduced the penalties for certain non-serious, non-violent offenses and allocates 25% of the resulting statewide savings for LEA grants.
