Agenda Item 5.01 – Legislative Updates 

Trustees received an update regarding the 2021 Legislative Session and items related to education. The Board was provided with information on the movement of several bills that relate to education, as well as the news that the joint meeting of the Assembly Ways and Means and Senate Finance Committee approved a new adjustment of an additional $502 million for the biennium to go toward the Pupil-Centered Funding Formula. The monies included are made up of $67.2 million that was reallocated from closed accounts for Fiscal Year 2022 as well as $207.8 million from the general fund for Fiscal Year 2022 and $227 million for Fiscal Year 2023.

Two bills that were brought to the legislative session by the Board of School Trustees include Senate Bill 2 and Senate Bill 66. SB 2 deals with educator efficiencies and was passed by the Assembly, while SB 66, a bill created to bridge the digital divide was discussed this afternoon in the Assembly and passed. Both bills will be sent to the Governor’s desk to be reviewed and signed.

CCSD’s Government Relations team also worked with legislators on the introduction of SB 450, which extends the 10-year bond rollover through 2035 for school construction and modernization.
