LCFF Local Control Funding
California’s 2013-14 Budget Act included landmark legislation that greatly simplifies the state’s school finance system. The changes introduced by the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) represent a major shift in how California funds Local Educational Agencies (LEAs). For nearly 40 years, California has relied on a system that included general purpose funding (known as revenue limits) and more than 50 tightly defined categorical programs to provide state funding to LEAs. Under LCFF, California funds school districts, charter schools, and county offices of education equally per student with adjustments based on grade levels and demographic characteristics. LCFF replaces complexity in favor of equity, transparency, and performance.

Paramount Wins Golden Bell
Paramount has been named as one of the state’s leading educational honor, the CSBA Golden Bell Award. The Golden Bell was awarded to Paramount for its Response to Intervention and Instruction Program. The award recognizes public school programs that are innovative and sustainable; make a difference for students and focuses on meeting the needs of all students.
Paramount’s Response to Intervention and Instruction Program is data-informed to ensure all students are getting specific interventions as needed. The focus is on early intervention before a student falls behind in a particular subject area. At the same time, the program ensures advanced students are continually being challenged.
"As soon as we see a student having difficulty in reading, we immediately put an intervention in place. This guarantees students get interventions as needed instead of waiting for the students to fail” explains Principal Allard.
