2018 California Budget

2018 California Budget Passes

Last Thursday the Legislature acted on the 2018 California budget and sent it to the Governor for his signature.  There are still some trailer bills that they must pass but the document represents an agreement between the Governor and Legislative leadership.  Additionally, the budget agreement covered areas of disagreement between the administration and the legislature.  Items that were agreed to prior to the Budget Conference Committee meetings were not highlighted.  Though the budget continues to grow, the Governor as in past years, has attempted to keep spending under control.
Additionally, the budget includes the $3.5 billion mandatory transfer to the Budget Stabilization Account, along with a supplemental deposit of $2.6 billion.  Essentially placing those dollars into a rainy-day fund.
Total spending is $138.3 billion in general fund revenues.  In May, both Houses of the Legislature adopted the Governor’s Proposition 98 number at $78. billion. Proposition 98 funds K-Community College in California.  The final budget agreement added $3.67 billion to fund the Governor’s Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), that is $407 million above the Governor’s May Revision proposal.  The budget also proposes an additional $300 million in one-time funding for the state’s lowest performing students.  This represents a deal with Assemblywoman Shirley Webber who is carrying legislation to make this funding ongoing for the lowest performing subgroup.
Below are some additional education related issues:

  • $1 billion in one-time funds, these dollars are discretionary and will add about $168 per ADA.
  • $150 million in ongoing funds for the California Technical Education Incentive Grant administered by the Department of Education.
  • $150 mllion in ongoing funds for the Governor’s proposed K-12 CTE program administered by the California Community Colleges.
  • $14 million in ongoing funds to support the Workforce Pathway Coordinators, K-14 Technical Assistance Providers and the Strong Workforce consortia.
  • $50 million in one-time funds to address the special education teacher shortage and $25 million to address the overall teacher shortage.
  • $250,000 for Homeless Student Grants.
  • $200,000 to redesign the LCAP template.
  • $200,000 to develop the Budget Summary for Parents intended to improve LCFF transparency.

These represent some of the larger items to come out of the 2018 California budget, there are some other one-time expenditures for school district facilities ($6 million for Sweetwater Unified and $4 million for San Francisco Unified), After School Kids Code Grant Program ($15 million) and there will be some dollars for Suicide Prevention Training.
