Summary:Current law requires the governing board of each school district to hold a public hearing on the proposed budget of the school district in a school district facility, or some other place conveniently accessible to the residents of the school district, as specified. Current law requires notification of the dates and location or locations at which the proposed budget may be inspected by the public, and the date, time, and location of the public hearing on the proposed budget, to be published by the county superintendent of schools in a newspaper of general circulation in the school district or, if there is no newspaper of general circulation in the school district, in any newspaper of general circulation in the county, at least 3 days before the availability of the proposed budget for public inspection. This bill, on January 1, 2027, would repeal the requirement to publish that information in a newspaper of general circulation and instead require the information to be posted prominently on the homepage of the internet website of the school district at least 3 days before the availability of the proposed budget for public inspection.
