Recommended Motion:

The 2018-19 Consolidated Application for Funding Categorical Aid Programs, Part II, was submitted to the California Department of Education. Submission of the Consolidated Application is reported to the Board of Education as an informational item.


The Consolidated Application is used by the California Department of Education to facilitate reporting by Local Educational Agencies (LEA) regarding the LEA’s interest in receiving federal funds, and subsequently, the LEA’s use of federal funds. LEA's annually submit the consolidated application to document district participation in categorical programs and to provide assurances that the LEA will comply with the legal requirements of each program. The June 2018 submission of the Consolidated Application, Part I included an application for funding of the following programs:


  • Title I, Part A Basic Grant
  • Title II, Part A Teacher Quality
  • Title III, Part A Immigrant Students
  • Title III, Part A English Learner Students
  • Title IV, Part A Student Support and Academic Enrichment

The February 2019 submission of the Consolidated Application, Part II contained information about the LEA's entitlements for each funding source. From each federal program entitlement, LEA's allocate funds for indirect costs or administration for programs operated by the LEA at the district level and at school sites.

As mandated, the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) was apprised of the contents of the application at the May 22, 2018 DELAC meeting. Consultations with private, non-profit school representatives occurred in June 2018. The 2018-19 Consolidated Application, Part I, was fully certified and submitted to the California Department of Education upon approval by the Board of Education on June 21, 2018.

VII.b. Davis Demographics & Planning, Inc., Enrollment Projection Update
Recommended Motion:

Receive student demographic planning report and enrollment update for 2019-20.


The Davis Joint Unified School District has contracted with Davis Demographics & Planning, Inc. (DDP) to update and analyze demographic data relevant to the District’s facility planning efforts since the 2005-06 school year. 

Demographic planning is used to make budgeting, staffing, programming and facility use decisions for the future. The three main factors affecting enrollment are birth rates, mobility of resident students, and local housing growth. 

These projections show that DJUSD will continue to have a declining resident student population.  Over the years, DJUSD has been able to maintain a steady enrollment level with out of district students.

More detail on the current projections are available in the attached report and presentation. 

Financial Impact:
No specific impact. Possible projections for potential changes +/- in LCFF revenues, student facilities needs and staffing to support student enrollment levels.

VII.c. Approve Second Interim Budget Report
Recommended Motion:

Receive and approve DJUSD Second Interim budget report


The governing board of school districts is required to certify, on the Second Interim, that the District is able to meet its financial obligations for the remainder of the fiscal year and the next two fiscal years. The certification shall be based upon the Board's assessment of the District's probable cash within the County Treasury and the District’s unrestricted fund balances that will be available for meeting obligations.

The Governor's January Budget proposal included additional revenue to fund the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). The Governor is projecting full funding of LCFF at target in 2019-20. As part of the new funding formula (LCFF), the districts are also required to develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) concurrently with the budget.

For 2019-20 the proposed budget contains net funding for LCFF growth that calculates to $314 (+3.6% per student) of possible on-going new funding next year. This is an increase from the previous revenue projections issued from the State Department of Finance. This projected change covers cost for increases in projected statutory costs with funds available for other purposes including employee compensation.

The District is experiencing declining enrollment and deficit spending which requires future budget reductions to maintain the State required minimum reserve of 3%.

The district’s current “positive” budget certification is based upon managing spending and fund balances reserves over the next 3 years to remain fiscally solvent. The District will continue to implement the plan to use anticipated increases in State LCFF revenue to meet the future needs and costs of the district. The District will need to plan the use of projected increases in State LCFF revenue and future budget reduction actions to meet the future needs of the district for student programs, employee compensation and other operating expenditures while remaining fiscally solvent. The District is anticipating reserves to drop to the minimum 3%.

The next budget submission will be the 2019 Adoption Budget in June.
