Published August 24, 2020 07:21
Sacramento, CA—The Newsom Administration’s proposed 2020-21 state budget trailer “clean-up” bill language surfaced Friday afternoon and in bill form (SB 820) on Saturday. Newsom continues to propose capping growth funding for nonclassroom-based schools and would allow only limited growth for classroom-based schools. As noted in more detail at the end of this update, the next day or two is the final opportunity for charter school advocates to speak-up and ask Legislators to lift the growth cap.
