On January 10, 2017, Governor Jerry Brown introduced his proposed state budget for the 2017-18 fiscal year. The budget reflects a slowing down of the state's economy and includes mostly "workload adjustments" for K-12 education, including $744 million more for the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and $58 million in one-time block grants.

CCSA's Budget Brief reviews how school funding increases level off for the upcoming year and highlights impacts on:

  • Prop. 98;
  • The Local Control Funding Formula;
  • Average Daily Attendance;
  • Cost of Living Adjustments;
  • STRS/PERS Adjustments;
  • SB 740 Charter School Facilities Grants;
  • Prop. 51 School Facilities Bond;
  • Mandate Block Grant;
  • Energy Efficiency Grants and more.

This is the first step in the budget process before a final plan is adopted. The Legislature must act on this proposal and will no doubt have its own priorities and ideas for managing the state's finances. Legislative hearing about the budget will begin in early spring and a budget will be adopted by Jun 15.
