Governor’s 2007-08 Proposition 98 Minimum Guarantee Reduction • Proposition 98 is the basis by which all California school districts receive their unrestricted, General Purpose dollars. • Reduced state tax revenues forecast allows 2007-08 Proposition 98 guarantee to be reduced by $1.4 billion • Governor proposes to cut only $400 million; anticipates that amount can come from 2007-08 categorical ending fund balances.
Governor’s 2007-08 Proposition 98 Minimum Guarantee Reduction (Cont.) • As a safe guard all districts are currently required to plan for a current year revenue limit decrease of .5 of 1%. • The effect on OUSD’s 2007-08 revenue limit will be a reduction amount of $1.067 million. • Based on the current proposal, all unexpended OUSD 2007-08 state categorical funds will be confiscated by the state Department of Finance.
Governor’s Proposed 2008-09 Suspension of Proposition 98 • Reduces K-12 education revenue by $4 billion. The budgeted 2008-09 4.94% COLA Revenue Limit increase becomes a (2.40%) Revenue Limit deficit. • For OUSD in 2008-09 this means a total reduction in unrestricted, General Purpose dollars of $15.66M. $6,037 per ADA 4.94% Inflation Increase
Governor’s 2008-09 Budget Proposal: Categorical Programs • On average, every state categorical programs will be reduced by 6.5%. • For OUSD in 2008-09 this means total state categorical funds will be reduced from $103.4M to $96.6M. A total approximate reduction of $6.7 million.
Governor’s 2008-09 Budget Proposal: Other Programs • Cuts to state Special Education funding will have a dramatic effect on the District’s current $15M encroachment. • Because of OUSD’s SELPA designation a special analysis will have to be completed. District is working with ACOE to determine the potential financial impact. • Adult Education is projected to have a net (3.46%) reduction from 2007-08 base funding. • Regional Occupation Program is projected to have a net (5.41%) reduction from 2007-08 base funding.
Governor’s 2008-09 Budget Proposal: Other Programs (cont.) • Child Development programs should anticipate getting less in 2008-09 than received in 2007-08. Specific impact on OUSD has not been determined because of uncertainty in state program reductions. • Child Nutrition programs will have state meal reimbursements reduced by 2 cents per meal. • Instructional Materials will be reduced by 6.5% from the 2007-08 budget. This will have a major impact on textbook adoption purchases.
Governor’s 2008-09 Budget Proposal: Facilities and Cash Flow • A new state facility bond is proposed to be on the November 2008 ballot (AB100 sponsored by Mullin). In the bond $9.087B, which earmarks $6.4B for K-12 facilities. • Currently the June ADA apportionment is paid in July. The Governor proposes to move the July payment to September.
