Budget Issue: Aligning state operations with new finance system
Program: Finance and Flexibility
Finding or Recommendation: Recommend refocusing the California Department of Education's (CDE) mission to better match a more flexible K-12 finance system. Rather than focus on compliance monitoring, we recommend the CDE devote its resources to data collection, accountability, and dissemination of best practices.
