Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) 

As part of the 2013-14 State Budget, then Governor Jerry Brown implemented the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).  This replaced the existing revenue limit formula that was used to determine the level of state funding for school districts. 

For some school districts LCFF has proven to be a windfall with substantial increase in funding while for others the formula has resulted in little or no growth in revenues. In the past every school would receive the same level of new funding per pupil. Now under LCFF every school district receives a different level of new funding per pupil, even those in the same geographical area and with similar demographics.

LCFF base allocations are based on enrollment and Average Daily Attendance (ADA). 

For the last several years, Miller Creek School District moved back and forth from being a state funded school district under LCFF to a Basic Aid school district and instead is a state funded school district Under LCFF the district receives additional state funding under LCFF but then has a loss of certain funding that the district receives as a Basic Aid district. This makes projections challenging. 

Under LCFF each school district and county office is required to prepare an annual Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP is a guide for documenting student achievement outcomes and aligning the district’s expenditures to specifics goals for student achievement. As the part of the LCAP school districts must identify how they will provide programs that better serve low income, English language learners and foster youths. In developing their LCAP goals districts must consult with parents, staff, students and their local bargaining unit.

The LCAP must be updated annually.

Budget Information

This section is intended to provide current and relative budgetary and financial information for the Miller Creek School District.  This will include not only the most recent information on the district’s finances, but news on the state budget and potential impact to the district.

Budget Information

The Miller Creek School District is required to submit budget reports to the governing board during each fiscal year - the Adopted Budget, the First Interim Budget Report, the Second Interim Budget Report and the Unaudited Actuals. The Adopted Budget is required by law to be adopted each year by June 30th of the preceding year. The First Interim Budget Report covers the financial and budgetary status of the district for the period ending on October 31st and must be approved by the Board no later than December 15th.  The Second Interim Budget Report covers the financial and budgetary status of the district for the period ending on January 31st and must be approved by the Board by March 15th. The Unaudited Actuals are district prepared year-end financial statements as of June 30th and are due to the County Office by September 15th.

The budget includes the General Fund of the District for the current year and two subsequent years, in addition to the Criteria and Standards and other supplementary schedules and information.

The budget and the multi-year projections are just that, not forecasts. Projections are expected to change as various factors change; they are predictions. These projections are the mathematical result of budget decisions based on a given set of assumptions, therefore they are subject to change anytime the underlying factors change.

The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)  is fully funded. The LCFF funding in the budget is based on enrollment and Average Daily Attendance (ADA) projections.

Proposition 30-Education Protection Act

On November 6, 2012, voters approved Proposition 30: The Schools and Local Public Safety Protection Act of 2012.  This measure was estimated to raise about $6 billion annually in state revenue by temporarily increasing the State’s sales tax rate and the personal income tax rates for taxpayers in high tax brackets.  

Proposition 55, which took effect January 1, 2019, was approved by voters on November 8, 2016 which allowed the sales tax increase in Proposition 30 to expire in 2016 while extending income tax rates through 2030.  

The statutory reporting requirements of Proposition 30 will carry forward under Proposition 55 which requires that the revenues go into the Education Protection Account (EPA) within the state’s General Fund.
