School Officials Have To Start Budget Plans

As it becomes more likely a statewide K-12 education budget of $7.255 billion will pass in the Legislature, school district officials are getting ready to deal with the budget realities that will result.  North Wasco County School District 21 Chief Financial Officer Randy Anderson says he needs to make an assumption on a budget number by the end of this month, noting he expects some change with the state’s May revenue forecast.  Anderson does say he doubts the revenue forecast can grow to the point where the state K-12 budget number would go up $7.5 billion, which education officials say they need to avoid cuts.  Majority Democrat legislative leaders have promised to put 40 percent of any increase in the revenue forecast into the K-12 budget.
