California Schools Group Wraps Successful LCFF Collaboration

California Schools Group Wraps Successful LCFF Collaboration

The future of California education was forever changed when it was decided to move more decision making from state offices in Sacramento to the local school districts across the state.

The reasoning was practical and sound. In the local districts, the people are more familiar with their own unique needs and therefore better suited to make the decisions that affect students and classrooms.

It was a change–a big change and an opportunity for some critical thinking for school district superintendents and board leadership.

Enter California Forward and the California School Boards Association. Thanks to a grant from the Stuart Foundation, they worked with 20 school districts and four county school boards of education from across California in a three- year effort that was dynamic, and participants will tell you, meaningful.
