Daily Republic: County officials cautiously optimistic about budget plans

FAIRFIELD – Reaction among local officials Thursday to Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposed $97.6 billion proposed state budget was upbeat, but cautious.

County Superintendent of Schools Jay Speck was also cautiously upbeat.

“I am pleased that it appears the governor has followed through on his commitment to improve K-12 funding after the passage of Proposition 30,” Speck said in a press release.

But Brown also made proposals to change that way that schools are funded, making it difficult to understand the full impact pending further study, Speck said. While Speck said he supports simplifying school funding and local decision-making, he added that this must be done in a thoughtful manner so that the impacts to local students are understood.
