Trustees getting a state education budget update. Overall, the state will spend $6.3 billion more next year – an average of $751 per average daily attendance.
A lot of quick numbers from SUSD business chief Michele Huntoon. Here are some things the district will not expect, because it’s not in the Governor’s budget:
- No proposal for statewide school facilities bond
- No new funding to address the unfunded liability in CalSTRS
- No new Special Ed funding
- No new funding for early childhood education
- No new funidng for fed/state mandates
Stockton Unified will get $14 million in new Local Control Funding Formula, which the district is starting to plan for through committees. There will also be some one-time cash (no number stated) coming back to SUSD to make up for past deferrals.
The governor is increasing the state’s rainy day fund (I’ll spare the drought reference!), so things overall appear to be pretty good for schools.
