Click here to see EdSource Today’s interactive graphic of the budget the Legislature passed Friday. The Legislature on Friday passed a $96.3 billion budget plan for the state that includes a shift in how California funds schools and contains significant funding for education. Schools and community colleges will receive $55.3 billion under the voter-approved school funding guarantee. The total is $1.2 billion less than schools received last fiscal year. However, the state has been paying off much of the Prop. 98 debt owed to schools for late payments in past years. Eliminating that debt will free up money for programmatic spending.
