Our Event Calendar is up-to-date for this week.
Earlier today Governor Newsom’s May Revise was released. The main overall highlight is the expected revenue surplus of $97.5 BILLION. The COLA has also been increased to 6.56%. CAEP is not specifically mentioned within the K-12 overview; and the Revise indicates that the COLA increase is for “selected categorical programs” only. Hopefully clarification will be coming soon whether or not CAEP finding is included within those “selected categorical programs. Any further updates will be posted if and when they become available.
The Governor’s Office has announced that the May Revise will be released Friday. Governor Newsom is expected to discuss the highlights of his revision at approximately 10:00 a.m. The May Revise should be posted online shortly after that. Once the budget update is posted, any updates to K-14 Education, particularly adult education news, will be posted here.
