State budget update
State Budget Update

  • It has been a thorny and winding journey from January’s initial proposals to an on-time state budget . . .

    • From threatened losses of billions . . .

    • To flat funding with troubling conditions

  • Financial and non-financial implications

    • State did their best (?) to close the gap with no bipartisan support.

    • The level of intrusion into local fiscal decisions and setting aside any measure of fiscal oversight invites future, deeper problems.

State budget update1
State Budget Update

  • Proposition 98

    • Proposition 98 minimum guarantee was manipulated several ways, which ultimately lowered the amount that should have been provided to K-14 education by at least $4.9 billion.

    • The bottom line is that the Legislature’s disregard for the Proposition 98 guarantee and the suspension process renders the measure meaningless.

State budget update2
State Budget Update

  • Trigger Reductions

    • December 15 DOF is required to determine whether state revenues are coming in as forecast or are falling short.

    • If falling short (more than $1 billion), automatic spending reductions are triggered in the following order as of January 1:

      • Between $1 billion and $2 billion:

        • $23 million to child care

        • $30 million to community colleges

        • $548 million to UC and CSU

State budget update3
State Budget Update

  • Trigger Reductions (continued)

    • More than $2 billion:

      • Up to $1.5 billon (4%) reduction to the Revenue Limit

      • $248 million to Home-to-School Transportation

      • $72 million (more) to community colleges

  • To mitigate the loss in K-12 funding, authorizes up to seven day (in addition to existing 5 days) reduction in school year.

    • Subject to collective bargaining

State budget update4
State Budget Update

  • Just for fun . . . the education “wall of debt” includes:

    • Almost 20% deficit factor - $1.7 billion

    • Sales tax shift obligation - $2.1 billion

    • Cash deferrals – more than $9 billion

    • Proposition 98 settle up - $1.2 billion

    • Proposition 98 maintenance factor – at least $9.9 billion

    • All of the above are needed to bring school funding back in line with statutory obligations

Rusd budget update
RUSD Budget Update

  • While state revenue is flat (+ 91 cents per-ADA), other revenues are expectedly down due to one-time nature of federal stimulus funds from prior years.

  • Expenditures are actually up…

    • No 2011-12 budget reductions

    • Step & Column $3.1 million

    • Augmentations $5.7 million

      • Driven by necessity

    • New Initiatives $1.1 million

      • All have funding sources

Rusd budget update1
RUSD Budget Update

  • One-time resources have covered prior year deficits and 2011-12 will be the first year where deficit spending is reflected, estimated at $21.7 million.

  • Prior year resources will cover this deficit and the projected 2012-13 deficit of $25.3 million.

Rusd budget update2
RUSD Budget Update

  • What really are our budget concerns?

    • Economic climate is far from completing its turn up

    • State gap and debt is far greater than acknowledged

    • State politics continue to trump economics

    • Matching recurring revenue to expenditures is something of the past – RUSD is now significantly dependent on savings built up over the last couple of years

    • Flexibility with restricted funds continues to be an important element in our financial stability

C e l e b r a t i n g financial stability
Celebrating Financial Stability

  • RUSD has a stable financial plan

    • Our Board of Education has made good choices in the midst of dire circumstances

    • Our staff has been accommodating and supportive – thank you!

    • Our employees, and therefore our students, are enjoying a stable 18 months with NO layoffs

    • Our 2011-12 budget has no reductions and even a few augmentations

    • Our cash position remains strong despite deferrals

C e l e b r a t i n g with special education
Celebrating With Special Education

  • Medi-Cal Administrative Activities (MAA)

    • Sharing your success!

  • One-time federal stimulus funds created opportunities to invest in improvements that lead to enhanced services and multi-year recurring savings.

    • Starting Gate Non-Public School

    • Services to Students with Autism

    • Improved IEP Process

C e l e b r a t i n g maa 10 11
Celebrating MAA 10-11!

  • Thank you principals and your staff for your support of the MAA program.

    • Your support generated a six-fold increase in eligible claims for work your staff does each day in supporting students.

    • Outreach promoting available low cost health insurance for children resulted in significant increases in families obtaining health insurance coveragefor children.

C e l e b r a t i n g maa 10 111
Celebrating MAA 10-11!


  • Schools / departments with 100% participation of eligible MAA activities (at least two billable codes per quarter)

C e l e b r a t i n g maa 10 112
Celebrating MAA 10-11!

  • Estimated claims for MAA for 10-11 totaled $2.7 million

    • Initially sharing $500,000 with schools / departments that generated future revenue

    • Individual site share is based on percentage of site values to total generated funds

    • “Checks” range from $28 to $18,113

C e l e b r a t i n g maa 10 113
Celebrating MAA 10-11!


  • First, Second and Third Place sites generating the highest dollar value of MAA claims (amounts shown are prorated from the $500,000 being shared at this time)

  • All participating sites are receiving funds

C e l e b r a t i n g maa 10 114
Celebrating MAA 10-11!

  • What can you do with your new found fortune?

    • Why, spend it of course . . . on student activities where you are able to reduce or eliminate the burden of lost “student fees” and/or parent-dependent donations.

    • For example . . .

      • At elementary schools – use to support 6th Grade Science Camp

      • At middle schools – use to support choir, band or athletic tournaments

      • At high schools – options are unlimited (athletic transportation, fine & performing arts programs, etc.)

Maa for 11 12
MAA For 11-12

  • Continue the great contribution you are making!

  • Incentives for 11-12 participation are similar to 10-11 with some expanded requirements and opportunities (including the opportunity to share in funds generated next year)

    • Minimum of three billable codes

      • Three-times-a-year drawing within site for iPad2

    • Sites with 100% participation with at least three billable codes

      • Three-times-a-year drawing for a participant lunch catered by Chef Ryan

Starting gate nps
Starting Gate NPS

  • Non-public schools provide specialized educational services to special needs students in cases where the District is unable to meet the needs of the student in a traditional setting.

    • Contracts with over 12 NPS entities

    • Services to 156 students

    • Costs exceed $4.6 million annually

Starting gate nps1
Starting Gate NPS

  • Explored and now implemented a unique partnership opportunity to serve a sub-group of NPS students using an otherwise underutilized RUSD facility.

    • Five-year agreement with a non-profit NPS provider

    • Located at Grant Education Center

    • Initially serving up to 168 RUSD and non-RUSD students (up to 100 RUSD students)

    • Middle and high school age students, expanding to elementary age in the future

  • Improved the IEP process by providing:

    • Web-based IEP program and training
