Dixon Unified trustees likely will sign off on a $27.4 million 2014-15 budget and an accompanying Local Control Accountability Plan.
The rural district’s budget will have $1.1 million in deficit spending and an ending balance of $1.3 million.
Additionally, the district, with 3,400 students, faces an unappropriated fund balance, or shortfall,of nearly $438,000, or 1.6 percent of the overall budget, when classes resume in mid-August.
Trustees are expected to approve a final draft of the district’s 74-page LCAP, a document that details what educators, the governing board and teachers must do to educate students and how they are going to measure results. LCAPs are key components of Gov. Jerry Brown’s Local Control Funding Formula, and are an effort, by giving more power to local school districts, to narrow the so-called “achievement gap,” the difference in standardized test outcomes among various ethnic groups and other subgroups.
