Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (1)

A recent law made major changes in the way that the state allocates funding to schools.  What will you do to ensure that the public understands your local control formula for school spending and your plan to measure outcomes?
Answer from Daniel Goldstein:

The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) ensure that decisions are made at the local level on how to meet the budget needs of the school district. Local input to the budget process is essential, and therefore, parents, educators, staff, workers, administrators, and the community at large are invited to participate in the process. Budgeted programs are measured for timeliness and success, and the results are reported back to the community. I will ensure that the process is inclusive, respectful, and transparent.
