The Benicia Unified School District Board of Trustees will meet early Thursday evening for a workshop on the Local Control Accountability Plan, which is tied to how the Local Control Funding Formula is funded.
The workshop will be facilitated by Superintendent Janice Adams, Chief Business Official Tim Rahill and Curriculum Director Marie Morgan.
The Local Control Funding Formula is the new way that California funds school districts like Benicia’s, based on funding per student plus a supplemental grant add-on for English learners, students with socioeconomic disadvantages and foster youth.
The LCCF provides about $6,321 per student, and the funding is based on attendance of the students, not just enrollment.
