In 2013-14, in an effort to give local districts and their communities more say in how state money is allocated in their schools, California changed the way it funded schools. This new funding model was called the Local Control Funding Formula, or LCFF. The LCFF balanced the way funds were distributed to schools so that schools whose student populations needed a boost were given more state funding. These funds are ONGOING revenue that the District controls where it gets spent.
Since 2013-14 GUSD's ONGOING LCFF Revenues have increased 53%! These dollars are given to the district each year to help fund full time classroom teachers, reduce class sizes, and hire support staff such as nurses and counselors. These are not one-time funds.
