Why are you asking for additional funds?

Answer

The current California State funding goal is to return funding to schools at the financial levels they were receiving in the 2007-2008 school year by the year 2021. This funding outlook does not result in meeting the additional financial burdens being placed upon the district in the area of healthcare and other state-mandated programs.  In order to maintain our current programs and continue to make Lafayette School District thrive in areas like high-quality reading, math, and science programs while maintaining a balanced educational program, Lafayette must secure this extra funding.
