Rancho Santa Fe School District board holds public LCAP meeting

The Rancho Santa Fe School District board held a public hearing on May 29 to review its Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), a new requirement of all school districts this year as a result of the state’s new Local Control Funding Formula (LCCF). The LCAP and the district’s 2014-15 budget will be approved at the June 5 regular board meeting.

With the formula, revenue limits and most state categorical funding are eliminated and each school district’s funding formula is based on the number, grade level and demographics of the students the district serves. Rancho Santa Fe will continue to be a community-funded district, primarily funded through property taxes although the district will still receive state and federal monies.
