Study of the Early Implementation of the Local Control Funding Formula

This project sought to answer state policymakers’ immediate questions about early implementation of California’s new school finance system, the Local Control Funding Formula.

SRI International, in collaboration with Julia Koppich & Associates, Inverness Research, and researchers from the University of Southern California and San Diego State University, interviewed 71 district and county office of education officials across the state to understand the promise and challenges of California’s new school finance system, the Local Control Funding Formula, after one year of implementation. Findings are relevant to state policymakers and others interested in similar reforms.
