In the midst of what is the greatest uncertainty for the California economy and State Budget, it is critical that district and school agency leaders are informed about state-level education finance and policy decisions impacting local programs. This year’s May Revision has significant implications for local educational agencies’ finances and operations in 2023-24 and beyond. But, as always and perhaps more than in recent history, the May Revision is likely not reflective of what will be the final State Budget as Governor Gavin Newsom and the leadership of the California State Assembly and Senate begin earnest negotiations to reach an agreement by July 1, 2023.

The next major fiscal checkpoint for your local agency will be at our annual School Finance Conference, which has been the centerpiece of school agency financial management and business planning for more than 40 years. Traditionally, our School Finance Conference is held in July each year—after the Governor has approved the Legislature’s June 15 State Budget and after budget trailer bills have been acted upon. Again, this year we will present the School Finance Conference as a live webinar.

We at School Services of California Inc. always strive to find ways to provide you timely and accurate information that you can operationalize locally.  We offer our best advice, and most especially during uncertain and a rapidly changing environment. With this in mind, we will continue to follow the State Budget deliberations during and after the webinar, keeping you informed through our Fiscal Report articles and videos.

In the meantime, please be sure to hold this date for our
School Finance Conference webinar:
Thursday, July 20, 2023
9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

As with our prior conferences, this year’s program will focus on the newly adopted State Budget, current management issues, and implementation of current initiatives for public education. Additionally, our presentation will discuss forecasts of school funding for future months and years—a critical factor for multiyear projections and, therefore, budget-year decisions.

Attendees will be able to submit questions during the webinar to be answered live at the end of the event. For those unable to make the live event, the webinar will be recorded so that you can view the content at a convenient time for you.
