           SUBJECT  :    Budget Act of 2013:  School Finance

           SOURCE  :     Author


           DIGEST  :    This bill corrects a drafting error and enacts  
          technical clean-up to the budget trailer bill, AB 97 (Assembly  
          Budget Committee), that established the Local Control Funding  
          Formula (LCFF) for school districts, charter schools, and county  
          offices of education (COEs); and enacts technical clean-up to  
          the 2013 Budget Act, AB 110.

           Assembly Amendments  delete prior version and insert current  
          language of the bill.

           ANALYSIS  :    This bill provides clarifying and technical  
          amendments to AB 97.  Beginning in the 2013-14 fiscal year, AB  
          97 establishes a LCFF for school districts, charter schools, and  
          COEs.  In addition,  AB 97 requires school districts and COEs,  
          on or before July 1, 2014 (with annual updates beginning in  
          2015), to adopt a local control and accountability plan to  
          measure various state and local goals, as specified, using a  
                                                                CONTINUED

                                                                     Page

          template adopted by the State Board of Education.

          Specifically, this bill:

          1.Removes a provision that was not part of the budget agreement,  
            and that was inadvertently included in AB 97.  The provision  
            specifies how school districts shall spend the funding  
            adjustment they receive for students enrolled in grades 9  
            through 12.

          2.Clarifies that a school district shall spend no less on  
            home-to-school transportation than the amount of funds the  
            district spent for home-to-school transportation programs in  
            the 2012-13 fiscal year.

          3.Inserts the proper name of the entity established to provide  
            technical assistance to school districts and county offices of  
            education.
