Elk Grove Unified operates a total budget of approximately $528 million. A wide variety of instructional, educational support and general support programs are included in the General Fund. Categorical projects funded by Federal, State, County and Local sources are also reported in this fund.
The majority of the funding for General Fund district services is provided by Revenue Limit funds (state and local tax dollars) based on student attendance. These funds are included in the unrestricted General Fund. The restricted General Fund incorporates funding from the state for special education, transportation and other categorical projects. It also includes federal funding for No Child Left Behind programs, special education and other categorical projects. The district can and does contract with other agencies, such as the Sacramento County Office of Education, to provide special services to some of its students. The balance of the funding for the General Fund comes from a variety of other sources including class size reduction and lottery.
The remaining Other Funds provide for self insurance and the acquisition, construction, maintenance, and start up of necessary facilities to house the student population and their related support services. Income for the facility construction has been provided, in part, by the State’s Office of Public School Construction, local developer fees, and voter-approved Mello-Roos bonds.
Questions about the budget can be directed to the Associate Superintendent of Finance School Support Rich Fagan or the Budget Manager Shannon Stenroos at (916) 686-7769.
