CA Dept of Education: State Schools Chief Tom Torlakson Reports Smaller Number of Districts in Financial Jeopardy

SACRAMENTO—State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson reported today that 500,000 fewer California students attend school districts in financial jeopardy now than last May, though an unacceptably high number of districts still face deep fiscal challenges.

The state’s First Interim Status Report for 2012-13 shows that 124 local educational agencies (LEAs) serving 2.1 million students are in either a negative or qualified certification, down from the 188 LEAs serving 2.6 million students reported in Second Interim Status Report for 2011-12 issued in May 2012.
