Two New Briefs Share How Three Districts are Re-envisioning LCAP

February 25, 2019

More than five years after the passage of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), California school districts continue to develop and refine strategies to act on the opportunities and expectations associated with the state’s school finance system. A new project called the LCFF Test Kitchen has enabled three school districts to make progress by leveraging the power of user-centered design.

The LCFF Test Kitchen provides local education agencies (LEAs) with the support and space to find and implement solutions that address the challenges of the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) process from a different perspective—that of the end user.

Over the course of a year, three districts have embraced a user-centered design approach to foster local innovation and develop better solutions to persistent LCAP challenges.

The results of their work are now available in two new briefs:

  1. Improving LCFF Implementation Through User-Center Design: Year 1 of the LCFF Test Kitchen | Learn more about the work of the LCFF Test Kitchen and the solutions that each district design team created for LCAP.
  2. User-Centered Design as a Pathway to Effective Policy: Lessons from the LCFF Test Kitchen | Examine the lessons learned from the LCAP design process and how user-centered design might lead to more effective policy from the outset.

Together, these publications offer ideas about how LEA’s can leverage user-centered design to improve their LCAPs and other initiatives.

The LCFF Test Kitchen is a partnership with: CCEECCDRPivot Learning, and WestEd. For more information about the LCFF Test Kitchen, please visit LCFFTestKitchen.org.
