Join CSDC on January 17 for a Live Budget, Policy, and Leadership Update Webinar

Declining state revenues are contributing to an estimated $68 billion state budget deficit—creating potentially challenging implications for charter school funding.

CSDC posted its initial analysis of this challenging funding picture right after the Legislative Analyst's Office (LAO) released its annual Fiscal Outlook in December.

Now with all eyes on the release of Governor Newsom’s 2024-25 budget proposals (likely on or around January 10), CSDC is set to host an information-packed webinar exclusively for CSDC Member Schools and Authorizers on January 17, 2024.

Who Attends?

This live webinar is an exclusive benefit available to CSDC Member schools and authorizers at no additional cost.

If you're not a member, CSDC urges your organization to join/renew so that your leadership team can access this webinar and receive CSDC's consistent, ongoing support throughout the school year.

If you have a school or authorizer membership, this webinar will:

  • preview the upcoming second year of the legislative session,
  • address key accountability and renewal topics, and
  • discuss other compliance and school operations matters.

As such, CSDC strongly recommends that organizations register their:

  • Executive Directors (and other senior leaders)
  • CFOs/COOs (and others with fiscal management responsibilities)
  • Governing Board Members

Attending as a team ensures your senior leadership team is making the big decisions with the same set of assumptions and information.

What Will CSDC Discuss?

Some of the key topics we plan to address during the webinar include the following:

  • The governor’s 2024-25 budget proposals, spanning from the larger economic picture to the potential impact on your school’s funding programs and budgetary bottom line.
  • CSDC’s budgeting and planning guidance and how to integrate it with the ever-expanding Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) process.
  • Reminders on key new laws and related compliance requirements.
  • Pending updates to the K-12 “Audit Guide” regulations and steps you can take to prepare for a “clean” audit.
  • The latest on the FCMAT/Legislative Analyst’s study of nonclassroom-based charter schools and other updates for nonclassroom-based schools.
  • CSDC’s take on major Legislative leadership changes, prospects for the legislative session, and suggestions on how you can most effectively engage your local legislators.
  • CSDC’s suggestions on key board governance and policy changes.
