California - AB1321
February 17, 2017
Co-sponsored by two nonprofit advocacy organizations, the Education Trust-West and Children Now, this bill would require, for purposes of transparency, the reporting of per-pupil expenditures of federal, state, and local funds for each local educational agency and school in California. The legislation would require each local educational agency to report the actual expenditures and the disaggregation of these expenditures to include LCFF base, supplemental and concentration funds. The proponents of the bill would like to see more transparently how the LCFF supplemental and concentration grant funding is being allocated to school sites with the greatest share of English learners, low-income and foster youth, and believe this bill will ensure that administrators are given clear guidance on how to report this information at the local level, while at the same time allowing the public to know where expenditures are being made across California.
