Travis Unified leaders, when they meet tonight, will hear how latest state budget numbers may affect the 5,100-student district with two elementary campuses in Vacaville.
Gov. Jerry Brown’s new budget, at $122.6 billion and due for revision in May, sets aside $1.2 billion in discretionary, one-time use for California schools, equal to $214 per ADA. That translates to nearly $1.1 million for the Fairfield district’s schools.
The five-member governing board must adopt its 2016-17 budget on or before June 30.
Some state education officials believe Brown’s budget underestimates Proposition 98 revenues for the current and coming fiscal years, but it was unclear from agenda documents if Ken Forrest, the district’s chief business official, would make that case.
