|September 13, 2017 CUSD BOT Meeting - Agenda Item #15 Resolution No. 1718-16 Adopting the 2016-17 Actual Gann Limit and the 2017-18 Estimated Gann Limit|
Proposition 4 the "Ghann Limit" amended the California Constitution to:
Because of the provisions of Proposition 4, in 1987, the state was forced to rebate $1.1 billion in excess revenue to taxpayers.
That rebate led the California Teachers Association to place Proposition 98 on the 1988 ballot. Proposition 98 puts a legal floor under school spending and requires that excess Gann Limit revenues go into education, rather than into rebates to taxpayers. Excess revenues above the 4% level continue to be rebated to taxpayers.
As Charter School enrollments continue to grow, Districts loose the ADA. Is CUSD attempting to increase its appropriation limits by an equal amount to the funds it is losing to charter school enrollment?
