Budget Planning for 2017-18á

In January, the Governor released a preliminary budget for 2017-2018 in which education has been allotted only 1/3 of expected revenue. This unexpected turn of events has school districts across the State reevaluating their upcoming year's budgets and developing ways to mitigate this new reality. At the core of the issue is recent legislation increasing yearly employer contributions to CalSTRS from 8.1% to 19.1% by 2020. Recently, PERS contributions have risen in the same fashion. This ever increasing contribution has quickly outpaced the amounft of funding school districts receive. Every school district in California is facing this same scenario.

Redlands USD General Fund:
For Redlands USD the impact will be immediate. Based upon the January projected budget, Redlands will receive approximately $1.45M new general funds for the 2017-2018 school year; however, our budget increases due to CalSTRS/PERS and Step & Column will amount to $4.45M. This leaves an unfunded general fund budget gap of $3M.


This leaves Redlands with facing the task of, once again, developing a general fund budget reduction prioritization plan.

Over the next three months, we will be using the same budget reduction process used in Redlands USD during thre recession years. This includes a multi-step process: A master list of potential cuts will be generated from input from Associations, staff, parents and community members. The master list will then be refined, and ultimately numerous input meetings will be held whereby interested stakeholders provide information that is used to prioritize the general fund reduction list based upon the Board of Education's criteria. The anticipated timeline is as follows:
  • February - Master list of potential cuts generated - stakeholder's ideas may be submitted through a variety of ways including Association leadership, supervisors, link provided on Districts' website
  • March - The Master list is analyzed for cost savings and impact; items allowing for cost savings are moved on in the process
  • End March / Early April - Input meetings will be held whereby stakeholders use the Board of Education's criteria to sort potential general fund reduction items
    • Mid April - A prioritized general fun budget reduction plan is provided to the Board of Education
