Special Event: California Budget Discussion

Hear from one of the top West Coast fiscal experts in school funding. Kevin will highlight some of the proposals outlined in the Governor’s budget announced on January 10 and answer questions from our members.

Normally this presentation is the capstone event of our annual Legislation Conference – never broadcast or recorded.  Because we had to postpone the conference this year, we’re opening up the opportunity to hear from budget experts discussing the state government’s priorities to all members, not just those attending our annual Legislation Conference.

We hope you’ll join us to hear the most up- to-date information about the Governors proposed budget for California and have the opportunity to submit your questions.
