IX. Action Items
IX.A. Resolution No. 19/20-3 – Gann Limit Adoption

Speaker:
Ralph Peschek, Chief Financial Officer
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Resolution No. 19/20-3 adopts the District’s Gann Limit establishing an appropriations limit in accordance with Article XIII-B of the California Constitution.
Rationale:
In 1979, voters enacted Proposition 4 limiting growth in government spending to no more than the growth in population and inflation.  This spending limit, commonly referred to as the “Gann Limit” after the initiative’s author, Paul Gann, applies not only to the State of California, but also to cities, counties, special districts, school districts, and county offices of education.  The revenues subject to the Gann Limit are limited to state and local tax sources.  Federal aid and non-tax income (e.g. cafeteria sales and adult education fees) are excluded from the calculation.

To calculate the Gann limit, the base year (1978/79) appropriation limit has been increased annually for both inflation, as measured by the annual percentage change in California per capita personal income, and population, as measured by the annual change in average daily attendance (ADA).  All calculations (see attached) have been prepared in accordance with applicable constitutional and statutory law as provided for by the California Department of Education SACS Form GANN.  The District’s Gann Limit for 2018/19 ($127,105,763.17) and the estimated limit for 2019/20 ($132,025,734.92) do not exceed the limitations imposed by Proposition 4.

Therefore, staff requests the Governing Board adopt Resolution No. 19/20-3 declaring that the District’s budget appropriations in the 2018/19 and 2019/20 fiscal years do not exceed the limitations imposed by Proposition 4.

Recommended Motion:
Adopt Resolution No. 19/20-3 declaring that the District’s budget appropriations for the 2018/19 and 2019/20 fiscal years do not exceed the limitations imposed by Proposition 4.
Attachments:
Resolution No. 19_20-3 Gann Limit
IX.B. Resolution No. 19/20-4 – Certification of 2018/19 Unaudited Actuals Financial Report

Speaker:
Ralph Peschek, Chief Financial Officer
Quick Summary / Abstract:
Resolution No. 19/20-4 certifies the 2018/19 Unaudited Actuals Financial Report, as required by California Education Code Section 42100, and appropriates differences between estimated year-end balances and unaudited year-end balances to the ending fund balance for each fund.
Rationale:
Annually, the District prepares a closing report of the budget for the prior fiscal year. This document reflects actual revenues and expenditures for the entire twelve months of operation, including accruals. The report is mandated and must first be accepted by the Board and then submitted to the Los Angeles County Office of Education.

At the time that the District develops its annual budget, the ending balance for the prior fiscal year is estimated based upon prior year patterns of spending, current legislation and established time lines. This estimate is truly just that: an estimate. By year-end, when actual goods and services are received, and revenues earned, these figures can change. However, the importance of the unaudited actuals are two-fold. First, it establishes the actual ending balance of the prior fiscal year, which then becomes the beginning balance of the current fiscal year. Second, it finalizes the actual revenues and expenditures of the prior fiscal year. These figures will change only if there is an audit adjustment as a result of the annual financial audit.

Recommended Motion:
Adopt Resolution No. 19/20-4 certifying the unaudited actuals report for the 2018/2019 school year, as presented.
