May Revise 2022: What You Need to Know 

Governor Newsom recently released an updated proposed state budget for the upcoming year that gives us an idea of what to expect for K12 funding next year. Here’s what we know so far. 

There’s more money coming for the 2022-2023 school year.

Here are four big investments that the Governor is proposing for every school district in California:

  • A permanent 6.56% cost-of-living increase (over $4B) to the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), the biggest pot of annual school funding.
  • A permanent $2.1B increase to LCFF base grants. Learn more about LCFF base, supplemental, and concentration grants here.
  • A permanent $3B increase to the Expanded Learning Opportunity Program. This means that districts would receive $2,500 per high need student to provide before-school, after-school, and summer school enrichment programs for low-income, English Learner, and foster youth students from preschool through 6th grade. That’s almost triple what they received last year.
  • $8B for one-time grants for districts to address local challenges, including mental health and wellness, student learning challenges, and staffing challenges. For scale, that would be 12% of last year’s total LCFF funding.

Your district may also have unspent funds from this year that can be used to fund community priorities in the upcoming year.

Districts should invest in student & family engagement. 

Shared decision making with students, families, staff, and community members is at the core of any successful school. The Governor has proposed two investments in student and family engagement:


Make sure everyone has a say in how this money will be spent! Ask your district to:

  • Tell you how much unspent money they have from the 2021-2022 school year and share their plan for spending that money in the future.
  • Amend their Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) to:
    • • Use the most up-to-date numbers from the Governor’s May budget,
    • • Include ALL of their estimated funding and not just LCFF funds, and
    • • Present a plan to engage with students, families, staff, and community members on any extra money they receive as a result of the state’s adopted budget.
  • Engage students and families in the creation of transformational community schools.
  • Plan to apply for a Community Schools Grant and join the next Community Engagement Initiative cohort if they have not already.
