To be transparent with the community, Chancellor Lambert is pulling back from Dining Services. The parameters in which the Board and administration will be moving forward & working with respective labor unions as well as with leadership groups throughout the district and put people first.

    3:40 p.m. State Budget Update -  $24 billion erosion in revenues would expand the $58 billion estimated deficit to $73 billion under updated revenue forecast

    Link to LAO Statement.
      School Services of California: LAO to Legislature: Deteriorating Budget Condition Ahead. Under LAO Revenue Update, Budget Problem Grows by $15 Billion. The state already faces a significant deficit this year—we estimate it totaled $58 billion under the administration’s revenue forecast at the time the Governor’s budget was proposed in January. However, recent revenue collections data reflect even further weakness relative to those estimates. Specifically, our forecast is about $24 billion below the Governor’s budget across 2022‑23 to 2024‑25. All else equal, this means the budget problem is likely to be higher at the time of the May Revision. The actual increase in the state’s budget problem will depend on a number of factors, including formula-driven spending changes, most notably Proposition 98 spending requirements for schools and community colleges. (Due to specific circumstances this year, changes in revenues are unlikely to have a significant effect on the state’s other major formula-driven spending requirements, specifically related to Proposition 2.) Roughly, a $24 billion erosion in revenues corresponds to a $15 billion increase in the budget problem. This would expand the $58 billion estimated deficit to $73 billion under our updated revenue forecast". Proposed solutions include sweeping unspent fund from various programs (e.g. growth, Strong Workforce Program, PT faculty Health Insurance Program, Health Care Pathways for English Learners & Student Success Completion); Revisting funds for CCC nursing, intercollegiate athletics, PE classes, Promise & noncredit fine arts. The Assembly and Senate budget subcommittees responsible for the education budget are slated to hear the Governor’s Proposition 98 proposals on February 27 and 28, respectively, while the Assembly today began its discussion of community colleges during a higher education overview hearing. The hearings and ensuing discussions may provide early indications of the Legislature’s positions on some of the Governor’s proposals.

    Vice Chancellor Cheu shared that currently apportionment funding should be ok for FY24-25, but the district is concerned about the possibility of one-time and other unused specialty fundings being pulled back or "swept". She noted that the reserves and some other financial measures can be used for FY24-25, but once utilized these options will no longer be available for following years. The district is very concerned about the budget situation for FY25-26 and beyond
