The California School Board Association and the California Department of Education recently announced new budget allocations where schools will receive a base grant depending on average daily attendance (ADA) numbers. The target funding level is based on the statewide average revenue limit, and a commitment to get virtually all districts back to their pre-recession levels. What this means to schools is new funding will provide $6,845 for Grades K–3, $6,947 for Grades 4–6, $7,154 for Grades 7–8, and $8,289 for Grades 9–12. Additional supplemental grants will add 20 percent to these base grants for each English language learner student.

It is equally important for our Title I students to ensure mastery of the Common Core State Standards.
