Beginning in 2013-14, the state of California brought major changes to the way school funding is allocated, with the goal of channeling greater resources to the students who need them the most. This new funding is called Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). Under California's previous system for funding K-12 schools, there were more than 40 funding categories, each for a specific purpose identified by the state. The LCFF model has established three sources of state funding with increased local control to determine the best use of those funds.
Per-Student Base Funding – The district receives a base level of per-student funding that varies slightly depending on the grade level of each student.
Supplemental Funding – This funding source adds 20 percent to the base funding for each English language learner, low income student and foster youth.
Concentration Funding – The third level of funding is equal to 50 percent of the entire base. However, this funding is only received if a district’s enrollment of English language learners, low income students and foster youths exceeds 55 percent of its total enrollment. IUSD does not receive this third level of funding, because its enrollment does not exceed the 55 percent threshold.
