The elected officials, executive directors and association staff joined in a discussion on Local Control Funding Formula, and the accompanying Local Control Accountability Plan, that serves as the new funding mechanism for California's K-12 students.
Additionally, the leaders developed topics for future discussion that may serve as projects and joint efforts to be taken on by the Institute for Local Government with support from the partner associations (League of California Cities, California State Association of Counties and the California School Boards Association). CCS’ past efforts were noted to include safe routes to school, school/community partnerships, and nutrition and health.
This group emerges as a Leadership Council in an unincorporated status after being an independent 501(c)3 for 18 years. The operational efficiencies from this change in status allow the leaders to deeply impact communities and support collaboration among city, county and school agencies and officials in providing more efficient and effective programs and facilities to serve California’s children and families.
