Board to host pair of public hearings – Benicia Herald

By Keri Luiz

Two public hearings will take place at Thursday’s meeting of the Benicia Unified School District Board of Trustees: one for the Local Control Accountability Plan and one for the 2014-15 budget.

The LCAP is used for measuring the progress of students. School districts must have an LCAP in place to receive state funds through Local Control Funding Formula LCCF funding.

The LCCF is the new way that the state of California funds school districts like BUSD. All restricted categorical funds are rolled into a base funding per student, plus a supplemental grant add-on for English learners, low-income students and foster youth.

For BUSD, the LCCF provides about $6,804 per student, with the funding based on attendance of students, not just enrollment.

The LCAP is part of the BUSD budget process and includes three sections: student outcomes; student and parent engagement; and conditions of learning.
