Advocacy Alert: Lift the Growth Funding Cap for All Schools

Published August 12, 2020 16:53

Sacramento, CA—The Newsom Administration is circulating proposed amendments to the school funding growth cap that would allow limited growth for classroom-based charter schools while continuing to deny any growth funding for nonclassroom-based charter schools.

California’s primary school funding programs allocate funding primarily based on average daily attendance (ADA) generated by students. As described in more detail in CSDC’s in-depth budget summary, the 2020-21 state budget education trailer bill included a controversial provision that allocates funding for the 2020-21 fiscal year based on schools’ and districts’ prior-year (2019-20) ADA, thereby effectively capping funding for growing schools/districts.

This cap is unprecedented in recent decades, was never discussed during budget deliberations, and came as a rude surprise in the final days of the budget adoption process.
