CSDC’s annual May Revise webinar is one of the primary ways by which we keep California’s charter school leaders on the cutting edge with up-to-date information and strategies.

During this webinar, we combine our deep legislative and education finance expertise with the latest economic indicators to provide you with practical guidance for developing your school’s budgets, plans, and forecasts.

It’s a “must view” companion to our annual Governor’s Budget Webinar, Leadership Update Conference, Charter Currents email updates, and other resources.

Why Attend?


It’s “one-stop shopping” for planning and budgeting.

This webinar is packed with information, including comprehensive updates on key budget, planning, policy and practice matters. CSDC synthesizes information from numerous domains, providing you with insightful, charter-specific guidance.

It’ll help you close-out this year’s budget and look ahead to next year.

This webinar offers “just-in-time” delivery of the critical information you will need to finish current year budget processes. It also offers insights into where the state budget process is heading and what to expect ahead of the June budget deadline.

It’s free if you are a CSDC Member School or Authorizer

Much of our ongoing work in Sacramento is sustained by the hundreds of California charter schools that join CSDC as annual members. It is with this direct, sustaining support that we are able to offer these information-packed webinars at no additional cost.


Who Attends?

Charter school leaders

This includes not only leaders who have direct oversight over their schools' budget development and accounting processes (e.g. CFOs, CBOs, COOs, etc.) but also leaders who make the big decisions on their schools' operational and instructional direction (e.g. CEOs, CAOs, principals, governing board members, and teacher-leaders.

What Charter Leaders Say

The May Revise webinar was thorough and extremely helpful, as always. CSDC's expert opinion on how to navigate the fiscal waters in California public education is invaluable. The macroeconomic and political insights on top of the nitty gritty breakdowns of budget assumptions really help to give gradations of color to legislation that can be difficult to understand without context.

Director of Finance, Environmental Charter Schools, Redondo Beach, CA

I love the way Eric Premack and the CSDC team provide important, timely information with a dose of humor. That makes it much easier to sit through a 3-hour presentation on the state budget and education policy!

Theresa Quigley

Chief Operations Officer, Community Learning Center Schools, Inc., Alameda, CA

This webinar was full of important information and clarifications for charter administrators. Thank you to CSDC for working tirelessly to bring us these details!

Highlights from 2022 Webinar

The 2022 May Revision to the Governor’s Budget proposals promises to be the most consequential in recent memory, fueled by a torrent of state tax revenues, spiraling inflation, and sharp differences over the state’s fiscal direction. The 2022 May Revise webinar provided essential information on key topics, such as legislators' education funding proposals, updates on major program expansions, and the latest on all major education policy bills.
