Chapter 2. Determination of Minimum Level of Education Funding
(a) This chapter shall be known, and may be cited, as the John B. Mockler School Finance Act.
(b) The Legislature finds and declares that the California Constitution, as amended by "The Classroom Instructional Improvement and Accountability Act" as adopted by the voters on November 8, 1988, mandates that a specific minimum level of state General Fund revenues be guaranteed and applied for the support of school districts, community college districts, and state agencies that provide direct elementary and secondary level instructional services. The Legislature further finds and declares that, by defining certain terms used in establishing a method of calculation for determining the guaranteed minimum level of funding, Sections 14022.3 and 14022.5 and this chapter further the purposes of "The Classroom Instructional Improvement and Accountability Act."
(c) It is the intent of the Legislature that the annual Budget Bill, required by Section 12 of Article IV of the California Constitution, include a section that specifies the respective percentages and amounts of General Fund revenues that must be set aside and applied for the support of school districts, community college districts, and the direct elementary and secondary level instructional services of state agencies, as required by subdivision (b) of Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution.
(Amended by Stats. 2015, Ch. 3, Sec. 2.)
