LodiUSD not worried about federal shutdown

It is true that Lodi Unified receives federal funding for key programs, however, the recent government shutdown will likely have no impact on the district at all.

Associate Superintendent Tim Hern said federal school money is paid out of previous year budgets, so the money is already allocated and isn’t being threatened.

The only possible problem school districts might have, Hern said, is if the shutdown carries on for a long period of time and California starts to think it may not get other federal money it is counting on for other state programs. In that case, the state could come knocking on the school district’s doors to borrow money and start handing out deferments.
