During the California State Level Update today, Carolyn Zachary announced that the state budget sent to the governor by the legislature did NOT contain the additional COLA for CAEP funding. The budget was submitted in order to meet the June 15 statute deadline, but negotiations will ensue now to boost the CAEP COLA to match the increased COLA going to LCFF. Perhaps we will hear more soon from the professional organizations.
FURTHER UPDATE — AS OF 11:37 AM IT APPEARS THAT THE ABOVE NEWS MAY NOT BE COMPLETELY ACCURATE. SEE LATEST POST FOR ADDITIONAL BUDGET INFORMATION.
