Statement on Gov. Brown's Proposed 2016-17 Budget

Jan. 7, 2016
 
We thank Gov. Jerry Brown for continuing to provide stability and financial support for our children, our schools and our community. We appreciate the Governor’s continued commitment to paying off the “wall of debt,” accelerating funding for the Local Control Funding Formula and the streamlining of education programs with greater local flexibility.

The Local Control Funding Formula targets funds to help educate low-income students, English learners and children in foster care. These dollars are making a difference in a District where over 80 percent of students are eligible for these targeted funds.
