Welcome to State and Federal Programs

This State & Federal Website is provided to assist you in understanding the purpose of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)  and the federal Title I funds allocated to our district and schools.

It is the intent of Title I and LCFF to provide supplemental funds allowing for the design of an effective instructional program for participating students. 

This website provides links and forms to assure the district and schools implement a fully effective and compliant Title I program.

The District’s Local Control Agency Plan (LCAP) and Local Education Agency (LEA) Plan serve as the master plans for the District and are aligned to the District’s values, mission, vision and priorities. The Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) aligns to both the LCAP and LEA Plan. The SPSA directly supports student achievement by addressing the following District’s Instructional Core Values (ELA, Math, Science, and Language Development), Social Emotional, and Family and Community Engagement.  Beginning in 2017-18, BCSD will begin implementation of California’s Multi-tiered System of Support (MTSS).
