Update to 2022-23 Proposed State Budget.

As announced earlier, the Proposed State Budget for FY 2022-23 has been released. Highlights include a $46.7 billion surplus in revenue.

Of this surplus, $16.1 is earmarked for additional Proposition 98 payments to K-14 Education. The budget calls for a 5.33% COLA to education. K-12 adult schools are, again, not specifically identified in the K-12 Budget Chapter. However, you may recall that for the proposed 2021-22 budget, K-12 adult education was included within the categorical programs which initially were proposed to receive a reduced COLA. This year, the Governor has proposed the same COLA for all such categoricals (County Offices are directly mentioned in this paragraph).

At the community college level, the budget calls for a 5.33 COLA within apportionments ($409.4 million), and another $24.9 million ongoing for 0.5% enrollment growth.

The link the the budget summary is here: 2022-23 Budget Summary .

Information on the K-12 categorical funding can be found on page 43 of the K-12 Education Chapter; and the information on the community college funding mentioned above is found on page 55 of the Higher Education Chapter.

The professional organizations will announce more specific details soon.
