The Dolores Huerta Foundation, Faith in Action Kern County and the Kern Education Justice Collaborative have teamed up to host a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) Forum to inform the community about why community involvement in school spending decisions is critical right now that schools are receiving public input on the LCAP.
The new school funding formula, enacted in 2013 gives more control to school districts. School districts must develop LCAP’s, a plan that connects the districts goals and actions to its plan for spending the LCFF dollars.
The LCFF recognizes that students who have less may need more to achieve equity and includes additional funding for low income students, English language learners and foster kids.
The forum will be held Monday, May 16 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Reider Education Center, 2000 K Street, Room 101 in Bakersfield. Dinner will be provided.
