Learn how California’s new school funding model affects you and your schools

November 14, 2013, 6 to 8 pm
County Office of Education

Free and open to the public. Register

The California School Boards Association (CSBA) is bringing its Local Control Funding Formula: Governance First briefing to the Santa Cruz County Office of Education in Santa Cruz from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14. This event is hosted by the Santa Cruz County School Boards Association (SCZSBA). The interactive, 120-minute presentation will be an excellent opportunity to get answers to your questions about LCFF’s community input requirements, your data needs, and how the formula works. The session is complimentary, but to ensure sufficient seating and materials are available, please let us know if you’ll be attending. Register for what may be the last regional briefing of the year. The CSBA LCFF Web page has many other resources and information links available, including a 1-hour, 45-minute archived video briefing from Sacramento.

As California transitions to local decision making, parents and community members will have a greater than ever opportunity to weigh in on and influence how tax dollars are spent to support local public schools. Over the next 8 years, the funding formula gradually increases financial support to our schools for students with the greatest needs, including students learning English, families living in poverty and foster children.

Join your local school board members on November 14 as they learn how the new formula will impact your schools.
