There is nothing more important at CATCH than involving the community in all aspects of our decision-making process.  To this end, our governance and Board Meetings are completely open to the public and we welcome feedback and contributions at every step along the way of developing our yearly and long-term goals for the school.

Our LCAP
(Local Control Accountability Plan)

THE LOCAL CONTROL FUNDING FORMULA (LCFF)

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. CCUSD does not receive this third level of funding, because its enrollment does not exceed the 55 percent threshold.

The Financials 

Throughout each school year, the Executive Director and the Fiscal Operations Administrator prepare yearly financial budgeting reports to track the complete and total resources of the school.  To ensure that CATCH is allocating and prioritizing funds in the best interest of students, all budgets and other financial reports are reviewed and approved by the school’s Governing Board during regular Board Meetings.  We welcome the public to participate in our regular board meetings (see Board Meeting Dates to the left) and provide input on our budgets, financial reports, and all aspects of our Local Control Accountability Plan.

Education Protection Account Plan
Pursuant to Proposition 20, the Education Protection Account (EPA) provides local educational agencies (LEAs) with general purpose state aid funding.  The EPA funding is a component of an LEA's total LCFF entitlement as calculated in the Principal Apportionment.  Click here to read CATCH's plan.
