Welcome to EGUSD Budget Watch
Following five years of state budget cuts that led to more than $110 million in reductions, thanks to the voters’ passage of Proposition 30, the Elk Grove Unified School District is beginning to climb out of the recession.
For the first time since state budget cuts began in 2007, EGUSD did not have to make cuts for the current fiscal year, 2013-2014. While EGUSD’s economic outlook has improved, the District must continue to address a structural deficit, as well as plan for annual cost increases and pent-up needs following years of reductions.
The State’s 2013-2014 budget included a new funding formula for school districts called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). In its most simple form, this new model includes a base grant for each student and two additional grants (the Supplemental and Concentration grants) for students of low income, English learners and foster youth. The Concentration Grant is distributed to only those school districts with 55 percent or higher of students of low-income, English learners and foster youth. EGUSD qualifies at 59 percent.
The LCFF requires community and parent input. As the district moves forward and gains a better understanding of this new formula and its requirements, more information will be shared on this website, with advisory committees and through schools.
EGUSD would like to thank the community for its ongoing support of the Elk Grove Unified School District.
