The Fairfield-Suisun School District governing board will hear a presentation Thursday on the effects of Gov. Jerry Brown’s May budget revision for 2015-16 and how it relates to education.
District staff will report to the board for the first time since the May budget revision brought in the good news of more money to school districts, including community colleges, instead of the less-money, bad-news that led to severe program and staff cuts over the previous years.
The positive shot in the arm primarily comes from an additional $3.1 billion in one-time education funds for 2014-15, which is on top of the $4.75 billion already provided in the budget from the Local Control Funding Formula, which is the new way the state funds local districts.
