About Budget Central
State Budget OverviewThe Governor's 2018-19 Budget proposal fully implements the LCFF two years earlier than originally projected.The LCFF funding formula provides funding to move all school districts and charter schools toward a system of school finance that allocates similar amounts per student average daily attendance (ADA) as base grants within four grade spans, and provides additional percentage increases, or "weights", for class-size reduction (CSR) in grades Transitional Kindergarten through grade 3, career-technical education (CTE) for grades 9-12, and supplemental/concentration grants on behalf of students that are not English language proficient, who are from low-income families, or who are in foster care.Increased state revenues will be directed towards funding of the LCFF in 2018-19 and districts and charter schools will receive this additional funding as determined under the LCFF calculation. The actual percentage and per-ADA increases for individual school districts and charter schools will vary greatly depending on the unique individual demographics of each district.Some categorical programs, such as Child Nutrition and Special Education, remain outside of the new formula and will receive a 2.71% COLA. Pupil transportation and Targeted Instructional Improvement Grants will continue as separate add-ons to the LCFF allocations with no additional funding increases.The proposed budget does not include any funding for increased employer retirement contributions, transportation, or special education.
The District will continue to develop the annual Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) and budgets together. We will not only be looking at how much funding is received, but also identifying goals based on priorities for kids. Staff, parents and the community will be invited to participate in the process.
