Free Workshop in Santa Barbara to Describe Education Funding Changes

A free workshop to discuss the most recent developments in California education funding and related topics will be held from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Thursday in the auditorium at the Santa Barbara County Education Office, 4400 Cathedral Oaks Road in Santa Barbara.

The free “budget perspectives” workshop will be led by Jack O’Connell and Kevin Gordon of Capitol Advisors Group, a leading education advocacy firm based in Sacramento.

The session is open to anyone who wants to hear the latest information on education funding in California, but pre-registration is requested.

Topics of discussion will include Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposed Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), Proposition 98, school accountability and school energy funding, among others.

The governor’s proposed Local Control Funding Formula, which would make sweeping changes in the way California schools are funded, is being debated in both the state Senate and Assembly.

The sponsor of the workshop is Climatec, an energy-management company based in Phoenix.

— Dave Bemis is the communications director for the Santa Barbara County Education Office.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
