Agenda Category:  CONSENT AGENDA

Agenda Item Title:  Resolution No. 02-090618 Gann Appropriations Limit

Estimated Time: 

Person Responsible:  Robert Clark, Ed.D., Chief Business Officer


In November 1979, the California electorate adopted Proposition 4, commonly referred to as the Gann Limit, named for its author Paul Gann. Education Code Section 42132 requires that on or before September 15 of each year, the governing board of each school district adopt a resolution to identify the actual appropriations limit for the preceding fiscal year (2017-2018) and the estimated appropriations for the current fiscal year (2018-2019).


The 2017-2018 adjusted Appropriations Limit is $49,080,857 and the estimated Appropriations Limit for 2018-2019 is $52,316,068.


Should a taxpayer wish to challenge the District's Gann Appropriations Limit, they have 45 days in which to file a request with the courts to set aside this limit. If a request is not filed within 45 days of the effective date of this resolution, then the Gann Appropriations Limit stands as adopted by the Governing Board.



Fiscal Implication:

Recommended Action: 
That the Board adopt Resolution No. 02-090618, re-establishing the Mountain View Whisman School District 2017-2018 Gann Appropriations Limit, and establishing the Mountain View Whisman School District 2018- 2019 Gann Appropriations Limit, as presented.
