The Budget Overview for Parents
SB 98 added EC Section 43509 which changed the the adoption date for the Budget Overview for Parents for the 2020–21 school year. Local governing boards or governing bodies are now required to adopt and submit the Budget Overview for Parents on or before Dec.15, in conjunction with the LEA's first interim budget report. The template and instructions can be found on the CDE website. SDCOE's Budget Overview for Parents Crosswalk can be used as a reference for completing the template.
The Annual Update
Existing law requires the State Board of Education to adopt templates for purposes of the local control and accountability plans and annual updates. Existing law requires a school district, county office of education, and charter school to include the information reported in its learning continuity and attendance plan as part of the annual update to the local control and accountability plan for the 2021–22 school year.
SB 820 requires a school district, county office of education, and charter school to also include the information reported in its local control and accountability plan for the 2019–20 school year in the annual update to the local control and accountability plan for the 2021–22 school year. The bill requires the Superintendent, in consultation with the executive director of the state board, to revise the template for the annual update to the local control and accountability plan before January 31, 2021, to reflect the inclusion of the learning continuity and attendance plan in the annual update to the local control and accountability plan for the 2021–22 school year.
The initial draft of the Template and Instructions is available here. Feedback on the template and instructions may be emailed to LCFF@cde.ca.gov throughout the revision process.
