Ravenswood Budget Report
Executive Summary

The Ravenswood Budget Report is required by the Budget Act of 2016–17, Item 6100-161-0001, Provision 12. This report updates the planned use of additional special education funds provided to the Ravenswood City School District (District) pursuant to the Emma C. et al. v. Delaine Eastin et al. settlement agreement. This report also provides the best estimate by the California Department of Education (CDE) of when supplemental funding will no longer be required.

Planned Use

The supplemental funds are used for salaries and benefits, consultant costs, district operating costs, and Court Monitor costs associated with the settlement agreement.

Continuing Need

The CDE expects a continuing need for supplemental funding as the District is unlikely to certify completion of all remaining Ravenswood Self Improvement Plan requirements during the 2016–17 fiscal year. The CDE anticipates responsibility for $1,480,000 in 2017–18.

You will find this report on the CDE Special Education Laws, Regulations, and Policies Web page.
