Join Southern California Grantmakers, Northern California Grantmakers, San Diego Grantmakers, and CalNonprofits for a statewide webinar on the Local Control Funding Formula.

The LCFF is the most significant school reform California has seen in decades—offering a historic opportunity to make school funding more equitable by setting new, locally-driven funding priorities aimed at improving outcomes for underserved students in public schools.

Policymaker and stakeholder engagement will be key to ensuring that school districts increase or improve services to the students most in need.

In this webinar, you’ll hear updates on state-wide implementation and review the Student Need Index, used in districts across California to identify the students with the greatest needs and address the need for parent engagement.

You’ll also explore opportunities for funder involvement and stakeholder engagement to help ensure LCFF dollars are spent to support the students for whom they are intended.

Sophie Fanelli, Director of Education at the Stuart Foundation, will moderate a discussion with LCFF policy experts from the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors:

  • Jonathan Kaplan, Senior Policy Analyst, California Budget Project
  • Kim Pattillo Brownson, Director of Educational Equity, Advancement Project
  • Oscar Cruz, President and CEO, Families In Schools

The California Policy Forum is a series of webinars presented in partnership with CalNonprofits and California Philanthropy (a Northern California Grantmakers, San Diego Grantmakers and Southern California Grantmakers collaboration).
