  1. Expanding the Teacher Voice in the Local Control Conversation Norma Sanchez &Marlene Fong CTA Instruction and Professional Development Staff Good Teaching Conference January 10, 2014 San Jose, CA

  2. Proposition 98 Funding

  3. Forecast of Proposition 98 Minimum Guarantee In Billions

  4. Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)

  5. Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) Most dramatic change to school finance in last 40 years New rules: • Hard to understand • Incomplete • Require continued evolution What we do know… • Most state categorical funds under the purview of SSCs are gone • Replaced by LCFF (base, supplemental & concentration grants) • Federal categorical programs & requirements remain

  6. Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)

  7. State Programs Eliminated Under New Funding System

  8. Local Control Funding Formula Categorical Program funds excluded from the LCFF and NOT flexible

  9. 2 Phases of the LCFF 8-year Implementation Phase (2013-21) • Can be longer or shorter than 8 years • Fiscal inequities could arise during implementation phase • No guarantee that individual district will receive equivalent funding • Significant revenue volatility for districts with high proportions of students eligible for supplemental/concentration grants Fully Funded Phase Once the LCFF is fully implemented, funding anomalies will be eliminated

  10. LCFF No district will receive less funding than in 2012-13 New formula will allocate funds toCharter Schools in the same way as school districts • Concentration grants for charter schools will be limited to no more than the concentration grant increase provided to the school district where the charter school resides

  11. LCFF • 3-year Rolling Average: instead of one-year % of Unduplicated Pupils (UPs) = ELLs + low-income + foster children district wide • No ELL count duration limitation:as in Jan & May • County Offices of Education: will review UP counts & data will be subject to the district’s annual audit

  12. K-3 Class Size Reduction • CSR is an adjustment factor for K-3 enrollment, with a 24:1target (can be higher if negotiated – check current CBAs) • Progress must be made toward a school site average classroom student-to-teacher ratio of 24:1, measured on the relative increase of revenues toward the target of full funding of the LCFF (about 12% for 2013-14) • Class-size waivers (for E.C. 41376-41378) granted by the SBE will not excuse districts from the K-3 CSR 24:1 school site requirement • The penalties are harsh if the targets aren’t met – all CSR funding lost!

  13. BASE GRANT/ADA Grade Span BG/ADA ADJ (includes COLA) COLA CONCENTRATION GRANT SUPPLEMENTAL GRANT/ADA Base Grant/ ADA Base Grant/ ADA 50% 20% UP%* UP%* 55% Grade Span ADA LCFF TARGET TIIG TRANSPORTATION * Unduplicated Pupil %

  14. Illustration of How LCFF Works

  15. Overview of LCFF

  16. Economic Recovery Target (ERT) • The ERT is designed for school districts that benefit little from the LCFF target entitlement calculation • The ERT is intended to assure that most school districts receive, at a minimum, annual increases sufficient to restore their funding to theundeficited level of 2012-13 revenue limits and the undeficited level of 2012-13 categorical funding

  18. Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs)

  19. LCAP Template § 15497. Local Control and Accountability Plan and Annual Update Template. • Introduction: • LEA: _________________________ Contact (Name, Title, Email, Phone Number):__________________________________ LCAP Year:_________ • Local Control and Accountability Plan and Annual Update Template • The Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) and annual update template shall be used to provide details regarding local educational agencies’ (LEAs) actions and expenditures to support pupil outcomes and overall performance pursuant to Education Code sections 52060, 52066, 47605, 47605.5, and 47606.5. • For school districts, pursuant to Education Code section 52060, the LCAP must describe, for the school district and each school within the district, goals and specific actions to achieve those goals for all pupils and each subgroup of pupils identified in Education Code section 52052, including pupils with disabilities, for each of the state priorities and any locally identified priorities. • For county offices of education, pursuant to Education Code section 52066, the LCAP must describe, for each county office of education-operated school and program, goals and specific actions to achieve those goals for all pupils and each subgroup of pupils identified in Education Code section 52052, including pupils with disabilities, who are funded through the county office of education Local Control Funding Formula as identified in Education Code section 2574 (pupils attending juvenile court schools, on probation or parole, or mandatorily expelled) for each of the state priorities and any locally identified priorities. School districts and county offices of education may additionally coordinate and describe in their LCAPs services provided to pupils funded by a school district but attending county-operated schools and programs, including special education programs. • Charter schools, pursuant to Education Code sections 47605, 47605.5, and 47606.5, must describe goals and specific actions to achieve those goals for all pupils and each subgroup of pupils identified in Education Code section 52052, including pupils with disabilities, for each of the state priorities as applicable and any locally identified priorities. For charter schools, the inclusion and description of goals for state priorities in the LCAP may be modified to meet the grade levels served and the nature of the programs provided, including modifications to reflect only the statutory requirements explicitly applicable to charter schools in the Education Code. • The LCAP is intended to be a comprehensive planning tool. LEAs may reference and describe actions and expenditures in other plans and funded by a variety of other fund sources when detailing goals, actions, and expenditures related to the state and local priorities. LCAPs must be consistent with school plans submitted pursuant to Education Code section 64001. The information contained in the LCAP, or annual update, may be supplemented by information contained in other plans (including the LEA plan pursuant to Section 1112 of Subpart 1 of Part A of Title I of Public Law 107-110) that are incorporated or referenced as relevant in this document.

  20. Local Control & Accountability Plan (LCAP)

  21. Oversight responsibilities of the COE starting in 2014-15: August 15 – COE may seek clarification about the contents of a district’s LCAP or annual update and the local governing board must respond within 15 days ByOctober 8, the COE will approvethe LCAP if: • LCAP or annual update adheres to the template adopted by the SBE • Budget includes sufficient expenditures to implement the LCAP If the LCAP is not approved: • Identify strengths and weaknesses in regard to state priorities • Assign an academic expert or team of experts • Request that the SPI assign the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE) to provide advice and assistance

  22. Oversight of LCAP: State Superintendent of Public Instruction (SSPI) • Approve LCAP submitted by County Boards of Education & provide technical assistance when necessary • When a District or COE: • Fails to improve outcomes for 3 or more subgroups 3out of 4 consecutive years, and • The CCEE finds that the LEA is unable to implement its recommendations, then • With approval by the SBE, the SSPI is authorized to: • Make changes to the LCAP • Impose budget revisions • Stay and rescind action of the governing board – except where such action would violate a local CBA • Appoint an academic trustee

  23. New System of School District Support and Intervention

  24. LCAP Timeline 10/1/15 1/18/14 1/18/14 1/18/14 7/1/14 California Teachers Association

  25. Implementation Timeline

  26. Education Code & Common Core The union and district should agree to the principle of collaboration and shared decision making that involves teachers for the implementation of the Common Core Ed. Code 60208 “It is the intent of the Legislature to do both of the following: Provide to local educational agencies a process that involves teachers, and is consistent with the implementation of standards-based curricula”

  27. From the LCAP Template • The LCAP is intended to be a comprehensive planning tool. LEAs may reference and describe actions and expenditures in other plans and funded by a variety of other fund sources when detailing goals, actions, and expenditures related to the state and local priorities. LCAPs must be consistent with school plans submitted pursuant to Education Code section 64001. The information contained in the LCAP, or annual update, may be supplemented by information contained in other plans (including the LEA plan)

  28. Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs)

  29. Common Core • $1.25 Billion ̴ $200 per pupil for Common Core Implementation • Funds apportioned in August 2013 (50%) and October 2013 (50%) • Must be spent by end of 2014-15 • LEAs must hold a public hearing on expenditure plan • Funds must be spent on: • Professional Development • Instructional Materials & Textbooks • Technology

  30. School Site Councils—2013 District LEA Plan School Site Council Single Plan for Student Achievement ESEA/NCLB Funds Title I, III Revise SPSA to Include LEA Addendum Year 3 Corrective Action (DAIT) Revise SPSA for ESEA/NCLB Program Improvement Revise SPSA for QEIA, SB 1133 Revise SPSA for SIG

  31. Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) and School Site Council Title l Schools • Continue format required by Ed Code • Conduct SSC/ELAC elections, training, meetings to provide input and approval of SPSA • Decision-making body Non Title l Schools • Vague format-consult parents, teachers, staff, students • Stay the course until guidance comes from CDE • Conduct SSA/ELAC elections, training, meetings to provide input on SPSA • Advisory only

  32. Recommended Actions At the School Site Level • Maintain your School Site Council • Encourage teachers to serve on the School Site Council • Elect teachers to serve on the Principal’s Leadership Team rather than appointed by the principal • Others_________________ At Your Local Association Level • Demand to bargain any impacts on your negotiated contract • Assure that teachers are appointed by the union to serve on advisory committees • Provide trainings for Rep Council members on LCFF and role of advocacy for all members • Others___________________
