Principal Apportionment
Assembly Bill 97 (Chapter 47, Statutes of 2013), as amended by SB 91 (Chapter 49, Statutes of 2013) and SB 97 (Chapter 357, Statutes of 2013), established the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), which represents a significant change in how California's kindergarten through grade twelve (K-12) local educational agencies (LEAs), including county offices of education, school districts, and charter schools, are funded.

Form J-13A

The Form J-13A and supporting documentation are submitted after the school closure is over. Approval of a Form J-13A request from the California Department of Education, combined with other attendance records, serve to document a LEA's compliance with instructional time laws and provide authority to maintain school for less than the required instructional days and minutes without incurring a fiscal penalty to the LEA’s LCFF funding.
