SCUSD is not a Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) district, we are a Basic Aid, or locally funded, school district. To learn more about how our schools are funded, see our Basic Aid District page (sub-page link at left) and our Adoption Budget Summary (below). Although we are not an LCFF district, we must still produce and follow a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). An LCAP is an LCFF requirement.
