The May revisions to Governor Newsom’s proposed state budget were released this week. Given the much larger than expected tax revenues from 2020, the news is good for education. Among the highlights are proposals for universal transitional kindergarten, a significant bump in the cost-of-living adjustment for the Local Control Funding Formula, the elimination of deferrals (money owed to school districts by the state), additional funding for low-income districts to provide extended learning opportunities, contributions to the rainy day fund, and more funding to attract and train teachers.
