Legislative Alert: Keep Up the Heat to Defeat the Cap
Published June 24, 2020 18:59
We’re hearing from legislators and their staff that phone calls from charter schools are starting to put pressure on them to fix the budget trailer bill to remove the cap on school growth funding. The Senate Budget Committee is meeting as we draft this message. The Committee discussed AB 77, including a pointed discussion with Department of Finance staff who struggled to explain the rationale for the growth cap.
CSDC hears that the Senate will likely vote on the budget package very soon, perhaps as soon as Thursday of this week, so having all of your school stakeholders weigh-in is both important and urgent.
We urge charter schools to continue to contact their state senators (find them here) with a phone call and/or email asking them to “amend AB 77 to remove the cap on school growth funding.”
