  1. West Contra CostaUnified School DistrictMay 18, 2011 2011-12 Budget Update Board Meeting

  2. State Update • Good news for Schools • Governor commits to keeping funding “flat” for the 2011-12 year • This appears to be our “Best Case” scenario • Loss of $2.6 million • Details will be reviewed with staff at the Governor’s Budget Workshop • General Fund Preliminary Budget • June 1 Board Meeting

  3. State Update • Governor’s May revision acknowledges progress made toward balancing the budget at the State level • $11 billion of enacted cuts • $6.6 billion in higher revenues • The remaining $10.8 billion budget gap is closed with tax extensions and proposed cuts to State programs

  4. State Update • The same taxes that did not get on the ballot in June reappear in the May revision • Extending sales taxes • Vehicle license fees • Enterprise Zone reform (not elimination) • Unlike January the May revision does not provide an alternative if tax measures fail to get on the ballot or pass in November

  5. State Update • Mental Health services which have been volleyed legislatively between Counties and School Districts reside firmly in School Districts under the May revision • Costs could be as much as $1 million for our District • Details coming at a Special Education workshop next week

  6. Threats to May Revise Budget • State Economic Crisis Continues • Governor cautions that the deficit is not solved because permanent solutions are needed • Hurdles Remain • Legislature must agree to extend taxes • Additional State cuts are necessary

  7. Local Outlook • Governor’s Budget if “flat” funded will result in a balanced budget for our District • Budget Reductions and one-time solutions recommended for 2011-12 may need to be implemented in 2012-13 to close a deficit • A new multi year will be part of the adopted budget

  8. Timeline • February 23 • Board Meeting on Budget • March 2 • Layoff Notice – Teachers and Administrators • March 16 • Second Interim Report • April • Classified Layoff Notice – Categorical and Grant • Board action for non-grant • Letters for grant funded per Ed Code 45117 • May • Governor’s May Revision • Consider additional reductions • June • State Election ? • Budget Adoption
