LEA Criteria for Differentiated Assistance

A table that lists the LEA eligibility criteria for differentiated assistance in 2022–23.

To be eligible for assistance, the same student group must meet the criteria in two different priority areas. For 2022 differentiated assistance determinations, only the state indicators reported on the 2022 Dashboard are used for determinations. Local indicators are not used in differentiated assistance determinations in 2022 due to the lack of two years of data needed to determine “Not met for Two or More Years”. Additionally, the College/Career Indicator is not available on the 2022 Dashboard. As a result, only Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) priority areas 4, 5, 6 are used for differentiated assistance determinations.
