Funding

California's public schools receive funding from three sources: the state (57%), property taxes and other local sources (29%), and the federal government (14%). The proportion of funding from each source varies across school districts. The majority of revenue (almost 70%) is unrestricted general purpose funding.

As California's school funding law, the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is a way for schools to focus on student success. The LCFF requires school districts to involve parents in planning and decision-making as well as in developing Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs).

At the February 11, 2015 Board meeting, staff approved the Organizational Rules and Procedures of the Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC).

 

The purpose of the CBOC is to review the annual independent financial and performance audits required by Proposition 39, make physical inspections of the school buildings and grounds, and review cost-saving efforts in building design and use. The Board is required to provide administrative and any necessary technical assistance to the Committee, including sufficient resources to publicize the Committee’s conclusions, all without spending bond funds.
