For the first time in 40 years, California is changing its funding formula for K-12 public schools. Effective July 1, 2013, after many years of research, policy development and community input, Governor Brown signed the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) into law. With the implementation of LCFF, each school district must work with parents and other community stakeholders to develop a Local Control Accountability Plan. This plan will outline intended outcomes and guide each District on the expenditure of the new monies available to them.
The League of Women Voters Beach Cities and the Torrance League of Women Voters are cosponsoring a public forum to provide information on the upcoming funding changes. Local PTA’s and Public Libraries are also co-sponsoring this event. FOLLOW THE MONEY, New Funding for Public Schools will provide background information and include a panel of superintendents & administrators from local school districts to outline what LCFF means to the children and families in our communities.
The event will take place on Tuesday, April 29, 2014, 7:00 – 8:30 pm at the Don and Sari Brann Center, on the campus of the Peter Burnett School, 5403 W. 138th Street, Hawthorne.
It is free and open to the community. For more information visit: www.beachvoter.org
