8 Prop 39 – Energy Efficient Funding $316 million in 2014-15 to K-12 education to be allocated on a per-ADA basis 85% of funding based on the average daily attendance (ADA) reported as of P-2 for the prior year & 15% based on the students eligible for free and reduced-price meals in the prior year LEAs must encumber the Proposition 39 funds by June 30, 2018 Receipt of funds is dependent on submission and approval of an expenditure plan by the California Energy Commission More information at 8 8

9 Common Core No new funding proposed in 2014-15, however, $200 per 2012-13 enrollment received in 2013-14 for Common Core implementation ($1.25 B statewide) Must be spent by end of 2014-15 Must hold a public hearing on expenditure plan LEAs can spend the funds for the following allowed purposes: Professional Development Instructional materials and supplemental instructional materials aligned to the CCSS academic content standards Technology 9 9

10 State Categorical Programs Still Standing COLA = 0.86% for: State Spec Ed Child Nutrition American Indian Ed Centers/American Indian Early Childhood Ed 10

11 Transportation Funded at 2012-13 level Permanent add-on to LCFF No COLA Funds must be spent on pupil transportation Direct-funded Home-to-School Transportation JPAs will continue to receive direct funding in 2013-14 and 2014-15 11

12 Lottery $126 per ADA – unrestricted $31 per ADA – instructional materials (Prop 20) 12

13 Special Education 0.86% COLA on state/local share ($4.39 per ADA) Growth (state) $514.50 per unit of growth ADA FYI – not in budget, but important Special Education Task Force Appointed 32 members Identify the state’s vision and mission for students with disabilities 13

14 Mandated Cost Reimbursement  $216.6 million for Mandate Block Grant (K-12)  Annual choice between existing mandate claim reimbursement process or block grant (little funding for reimbursement, however)  Higher rate for the 9-12 grade span is due to the inclusion of the Graduation Requirements in MBG 2013-14  LAO indicates Gov proposes adding 3 programs to MBG, but no additional funding Proposed programs to be added: Uniform Complaint Procedures, Public Contracts, & Charter Schools IV 14

15 Federal Funding Congress is working on a bill to fund K-12 education (and other programs) through October 2014 back to nearly pre-sequestration levels No additional cuts for federal program funds will occur in the current fiscal year New $250 million Race to the Top competitive grant fund was proposed to "develop or expand high-quality preschool programs for four-year-olds under 200% of the Federal Poverty Level" 15

16 Adult Education Existing K-12 & community college Adult Ed programs will maintain the status quo for 2 years (including funding) 2013-14 & 2014-15 LEAs must maintain the same level of Adult Education expenditures in 2013-14 & 2014-15 as were expended in 2012-13 LEAs will retain authority to independently continue existing Adult Ed programs, but it is expected that they will join a regional adult education consortium to gain access to future funding Gov intends to make an investment in Adult Ed through a categorical program in 2015-16 16

17 ROC/P The LCFF compromise maintains the status quo for ROC/Ps Of funds received for that purpose, districts are required to expend the same level on ROC/Ps in 2013-14 and 2014-15 as in 2012-13 Since 2007-08, ROC/Ps have been funded at local discretion because of Tier III flexibility Member districts of ROC/Ps operating as a joint powers agency (JPA) must also maintain allocations to the JPA at 2012-13 levels 17

18 Reforms Non-classroom based independent study – streamline and expand instructional flexibility Rigor and educational quality like classroom-based Same educational minutes as classroom-based Adequate teacher and student interaction Maintain classroom-based equivalent pupil-to-teacher ratio unless a new alternative ratio is collectively bargained 1 unit of ADA per year for each student enrolled School Facilities – continue a dialogue about the future of school facilities funding, including consideration of what role, if any, the state should play. Rainy Day Fund – constitutional amendment for the 2014 ballot to strengthen the existing state budget Rainy Day Fund Prop 98 Reserve where spikes in funding would be saved for future years of decline. 18

19 COE LCFF The two-part formula includes: Per-ADA funding to support students attending community schools and juvenile court schools Unrestricted funding for general county office operations, distributed based on the total number of school districts in the county and the total ADA of all students in the county Counties will receive a base grant per ADA for students served in alternative schools and community schools Targeted supplemental grants for English learners and low income students, comparable to the LCFF for school districts In 2014-15, all 58 COEs will have funding at their target or above 19

20 Community Colleges Cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) - $48.5 million (0.86%) Apportionment funding – Increase $155.2 million (3% increase in enrollment) Board of Governors must adopt a growth formula (first priority to districts identified as having the greatest unmet need in adequately serving their community’s higher educational needs) All districts will get some growth funding, and over time will be fully restored to pre-recession apportionment levels Financial Stability for Apportionments Increase of $38.4 million in 2013-14 and $35.6 million in 2014-15 Shift a portion of the redevelopment agency revenues to the following fiscal year Deferral repayment - $592.4 million (all deferrals eliminated) Energy Efficiency Investments (Prop 39) - $39 million Investing in Student Success $100 million to increase orientation, assessment, placement, counseling, and other education planning services for all matriculated students $100 million to close achievement gaps in access and achievement in underrepresented student groups as identified in local Student Equity Plans Deferred Maintenance and Instructional Equipment $175 million one-time split equally between deferred maintenance and instructional equipment purchases 20

21 UC & CSU $142 million each for UC & CSU 2 nd installment in 4-year funding plan proposed by Gov in 2013-14 5% increase in 2013-14 & 2014-15, then 4% increase in 2015-16 & 2016-17 No enrollment targets or growth funding No tuition increases (to receive increase tuition must remain flat through 2016-17) Must adopt 3-year sustainability plans by 11/30/14 New Innovation Awards (One-time $50 million for UC, CSU & CCC) 21

22 LCFF Emergency Proportionality Regulations control-funding-formula-spending-regulations/ 22

23 LCFF Emergency Proportionality Regulations Shall provide evidence in LCAP to demonstrate how funding apportioned on the basis of the number and concentration of unduplicated pupils (UP generated funding) UP generated funding shall be used to increase or improve services for UPs as compared to the services provided to all pupils in proportion to the increase in funds LCAP shall include an explanation of how expenditures of such funding meet the LEA’s goals for its UPs in the state priority areas COE shall review descriptions in an LEA’s LCAP when determining whether the LEA has fully demonstrated that it will increase or improve services for UPs If LCAP is not approved by COE for failing to meet proportionality requirement, COE shall provide technical assistance to the LEA in meeting this requirement 23

24 LCFF Emergency Proportionality Regulations Conditions under which an LEA may use UP generated funds for districtwide, schoolwide, countywide, and/or charterwide: >55% UP in CY or PY, may expend Supp & Conc funds districtwide &/or >40% UP in CY or PY @ site, may expend Supp & Conc fund schoolwide LCAP must describe how services are directed toward UPs in state priority areas If 40% UP in CY or PY @ site, may expend Supp & Conc fund schoolwide, but shall: LCAP must identify services provided districtwide/schoolwide LCAP must describe how services are directed toward UPs in state priority areas LCAP must describe how services are the most effective use of the funds to meeting district goals for UP in state priority areas 24

25 Issues to Consider for Bargaining/Organizing Additional funding for many districts More than double the new LCFF $ in 2013-14 Funding flexibility (local control) Common Core requirements Common Core funding Past or potential litigation regarding student test score related to teacher evaluation LCFF proportionality requirements LCAP requirements & student outcome objectives 25

26 Bargaining Implications SSCal is advising districts that REU requirement is not enough – instead districts should reserve 1 year’s increment of planned revenue growth SSCal is advising districts to use conservative LCFF estimates for out years in MYPs Large variances in per pupil and total funding between districts will create challenges when advocating for comparability Labor market is the labor market, still have to compete for talent 26

27 Bargaining Advice Determine estimate of district new $ for 2014-15 Get necessary financial documents (2013-14 1 st Interim, 2013-14 Budget – with ADA by grade span, 2012-13 Unaudited Actuals, 2013-14 UP% [CALPADS]) FCMAT LCFF Calculator Prepare bargaining teams with training & paradigm shift to bargaining on offense Push back on district bargaining delays Evaluate local readiness for CCSS & expanded bargaining possibilities (and the responsibilities that go with these things) Prioritize local bargaining needs/goals Consider QEIA best practices to inform local educational program decisions Prepare Organizing teams & work LPAE process to support improved organizational capacity & bargaining plan Time is now to assert right to consult on LCAP and as LCAP is developed, prepare a timely demand to bargain on any impacts and effects of the LCAP on the bargaining unit 27
