LCAP and Budget

Creating the Budget

Each year, the superintendent seeks feedback from schools, district departments, unions, and the community. This input is used to develop a budget proposal based on the amount of funding Redding School District can expect from the state and other sources. Our Board of Education reviews the proposal, and ultimately decides whether or not to approve or amend it. With ongoing and expanding use of evaluation data, Redding continually reassesses its efforts and allocation of resources to foster students’ academic success.

Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)

In July 2013, Governor Brown signed into law a new way to distribute money to California school districts. Known as the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), it is the most comprehensive reform to California’s school funding system in 40 years. With LCFF, school districts serving high-needs students receive more funds, based on the number and percentages of high-needs students they serve. Supplemental LCFF money will support students who need it most, such as low-income students (as measured by their eligibility for free or reduced-price lunch), children in foster care and students learning the English language.

Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)

All California school districts are required to adopt a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), to describe how they will spend LCFF funding, including supplemental funds from the state to support their focal student populations. Families, students, labor partners, and community members have the opportunity to provide feedback and help shape RSD's LCAP, similar to how we look to the community for input on district and individual school site budgets.
