Schools, LCFF and Family Engagement

How California schools are funded makes family engagement in schools more important than ever. With the Local Control and Funding Formula (LCFF), school districts are required to engage parents in making important decisions about their schools to support student success.

This includes the requirement for parent involvement in shaping a school district’s Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) by:

  • Actively engaging parents in strategic planning and decision-making
  • Seeking parent input on the needs, priorities, goals and spending in a district’s LCAP

With parent involvement as one of the eight key areas in a LCAP, authentic family engagement in schools is vital for school improvement and student achievement.
