Districts are anticipating billions more in unfunded costs to reopen schools. They want some of the money they'll need to be distributed more evenly than Gov. Gavin Newsom proposes.
Assembly Bill 2808 sets a goal of $35 billion more in base spending for the Local Control Funding Formula; that would put California among the top 10 states in spending but without a deadline or means to reach it.
Districts strapped with rising expenses could use the money however they want.
Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi says data will show if funding is really spent on English learners and low-income students.
