Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) represents a historic shift in how California funds public schools – a major restructuring of the state's school finance allocation methodology, based on key precepts of local decision making, equity, accountability and transparency. While a change of such magnitude brings with it many questions and uncertainties, the LCFF presents an equally historic opportunity for our District to improve student outcomes, close achievement gaps, and increase the level of communication between schools and the community we serve.
Under the LCFF, school districts are required to show how their budget aligns with their academic plan, by writing a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The plan must focus on improving student outcomes and closing achievement gaps by addressing eight state priorities and, if we choose, additional local priorities. Community and parent participation is essential to developing a strategic plan that fosters building a stronger school system for the benefit of our students, staff and community.
The district encourages your participation in this process to develop our Local Control Accountability Plan. Please assist us by completing the survey listed below.
The possibilities in every student inspire us.
Salida Union School District is proud to present our 2011-2014 Instructional Focus. This document is the culmination of the collaborative efforts by over 75 people including teachers, parents, administrators, and classified staff. The plan brings into allignment our primary goal, "Empower and equip all students today with the competence and confidence to build their tomorrow!"
The document describes what vital signs will be measured at all levels of learning and details our professional practices to reach our primary goal.

2012-13 Education Protection Account Spending Plan
Proposition 30, The Schools and Local Public Safety Act of 2012, approved by the votes on November 6, 2012, temporarily increases the states sales tax rate for all taxpayers and the personal income tax rates for upper-income taxpayers.
The new revenues generated from Proposition 30 are deposited into a newly created state account called the Education Protection Account. School districts, county offices of education, and charter schools (LEAS) will receive funds from the EPA base on their proportionate share of the statewide revenue limit amount. A corresponding reduction is made to an LEA’s revenue limit EPA entitlement. LEAS will receive EPA payments quarterly beginning with the 2013-14 Fiscal Year.
Proposition 30 provides that all K-14 local agencies have the sole authority to determine how the funds received from the EPA are spent, but with these provisions:
The spending plan must be approved by the governing board during a public meeting. EPA funds cannot be used for the salaries or benefits of administrators or any other administrative costs. Each year, the local agency must publish on its website an accounting of how much money was received from the EPA and how the funds were expended.
2012-13 Education Protection Act Expenditures
Salida Union School District: $2,753,878
100% of the EPA funds were used to cover salary and benefit costs of non-administrative certificated and classified staff.
