As a member of the LCFF Research Collaborative, Jennifer O’Day coauthored a report that examines several key issues from the third year of LCFF implementation. The report, which draws on case studies of eight California districts, dives deeper into four issues that emerged from the group’s first two reports: stakeholder engagement, Common Core alignment and implementation, allocation of resources to targeted students, the movement toward equity and coherence. The authors recommend that the state and others restate the equity intent of LCFF, offer support to increase district capacity, and allow districts to develop alternatives to the LCAP template. Jarah Blum, a member of the California Collaborative on District Reform staff, also contributed to the development of this report.
