After previous public hearings, the seven-member governing board is expected to approve the LCAP, or Local Control Accountability Plan, a key part of Gov. Brown’s Local Control Funding Formula. Essentially, it guides how the 21,000-student district, the county’s largest, will spend its money, particularly for programs that affect “unduplicated” students, that is, English language learners, minorities and foster youth.
The board, likewise, is expected to approve a $210 million budget for the coming academic year, with $4.6 million in deficit spending, an ending balance of $4.2 million, and $7.9 million in prudent reserves.
Measure J, a $249 million bond, passed on June 7, approved by more than 56 percent of those who cast ballots during the California Primary.
