Revenue from Proposition 30 and improving economic conditions brought a 17.1% growth in state general fund revenue and an increase of $10.5 billion for California schools in 2015. Davis schools received an increase to fund lower class sizes, new and restored programs for students, improved compensation for employees, expanded professional learning opportunities, and reduction of the structural deficit.
Now in the third year of implementation, the Local Control Funding Formula sets key state priorities for all students, but school districts choose the programs that are most likely to benefit their students. The LCFF provides more funding for students who come from low-income families, those learning English and those living in foster care.
The Davis Joint Unified School District prepares a Local Control and Accountability Plan together with community stakeholders. The plan sets goals to achieve state priorities and links those goals to the budget. The plan also establishes benchmarks to measure progress.
