Restore school site budget authority to site councils
March 24, 2019


Whereas, school budgets are a representation of values; and

Whereas, school budgets should be under the purview of all stakeholders; and

Whereas, some administrators abuse their authority when developing and implementing budgets; and

Whereas, there is more buy-in with a decision-making body over an advisory body; and

Whereas, prior to the Local Control Funding Formula and Local Control Accountability Plan process, school site councils had authority over the school site budget;

Therefore, be it resolved, that the California Federation of Teachers support or sponsor legislation restoring the authority of the school site budget to the school site council.

  • Passed as Resolution 6 by CFT Convention on March 24, 2019
  • Submitted by the Executive Council
