SSDA Today - Fall/Winter 2017 - 11

WHY JOIN SSDA?
We value and appreciate your support as the organization remains the only voice to protect the educational
and fiscal issues important to small school districts. Please note below what has been accomplished on your behalf:

Recently, SSDA has...

◊ Changed the law for DIR reporting and certified payroll
reporting to the following:
- Increased New Construction threshholds
from $1,000 to $25,000
- Increased thresholds for Maintenance Work
from $1,000 to $15,000
◊ Helped ensure all districts below 2,500 are exempted from
the Reserve Cap
◊ Passed AB 1550 (Limon) which will provide added
alternatives to small school districts who can collaborate to
access capital markets and lower the overhead costs normally
associated with such transactions.

Additionally SSDA has...
- Helped facilitate applications for small districts to obtain State grant funding to replace old school buses
with electric and other clean technology vehicles.
- Ensures that small schools are not over-identified in the "red" performance level
across measures in the State's accountability system by working with CDE on
appropriate statistical approaches.
- Help CDE and the State Board of Education develop an ESSA State Plan that takes
into account SSDA's input regarding capacity, access to resources, and applicability
for smalls.
- Ensure that the State considers appropriate adjustments in establishing the College
and Career Readiness Indicator to enable implementation by small school districts.
- Building SSDA's reputation as the first point of reference by policy makers on issues impacting small school districts.

This year, SSDA will focus on ...

◊ Disproportionality issues for small school districts

◊ Exemption from Ed Code 41372 (Required expenditures for classroom salaries)
◊ Transportation and Busing Funding
◊ Improve LCFF Base Funding for small school districts
◊ Educating Governor/SPI candidates on the needs of small school districts
◊ Continuing to educate legislators on the unique needs and issues of small school districts
◊ Providing webinars, workshops and conferences to help keep members abreast of legislative and fiscal issues.
We need your membership to help make this all happen -the stronger SSDA is collectively, the more effective we will be!
