Connecting the Dashboard to LCFF

This page identifies how the Dashboard state and local measures interconnect with the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) priority areas.

The specific state and local measures that are reported on the California School Dashboard (Dashboard) are drawn from the ten priority areas of the Local Control Funding Formula, which was passed in 2013. These ten priority areas form the basis for California's integrated accountability system, which meets both state and federal requirements. Table 1 lists each priority area and its corresponding state and/or local measure.
