The Los Angeles Unified Board of Education unanimously approved a $6.4 billion budget for the 2014-15 school year, ending a tumultuous year for the district and Superintendent John Deasy.
The budget represents the first in seven years that does not include cuts from the previous year. It reflects a $332 million injection of statewide revenue over last year, as a result of the state’s new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).
The 6-0 vote followed a round of comments by all the members, who praised Deasy for a new approach to resolving contentious issues with a strong effort to include community input, especially when it came to supporting the districts students with the greatest needs.
