State Budget Briefs

Overview

State Budget Briefs

The CFT is an active participant in the state budget process because public school and community college districts receive two-thirds of their funding from the state, and decisions made by state legislators set the stage for those made by district governing boards.

Our CFT Research Department analyzes the state budget and the impact it will have on education, from early childhood to university. The Research Briefs span the timeline of budget process, from the governor’s January proposals to the adopted and signed budget.
