Metrics aligned to LCFF State Priorities

LCFF requires districts to create annual goals in the LCAP and set expected annual measurable objectives (EAMOs) to monitor progress toward those goals. Progress must be based on identified metrics, which may be quantitative or qualitative. There are specific required elements for measuring progress within the eight priority areas. LEAs may also include a variety of locally determined metrics when creating their LCAP. Metrics required for each LCFF State Priority are:
