The Davis school board will hear an update on the impact of the governor’s May budget revision and deal with several items relating to new state laws when the trustees meet at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Associate Superintendent Bruce Colby’s agenda material for what is scheduled as a 30-minute presentation about the revised state budget leads off with an image of a highway sign reading “Change Ahead,” a reference to Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposal for a major overhaul in state education funding.

But Colby’s report will be tentative, since it is by no means clear how much Brown’s proposed local control funding formula ultimately will be adopted by the California Legislature.

Colby’s notes for Thursday’s meeting include the observation that “state revenues and funding are on an upward trend” for education. He adds that under the proposed funding formula, Davis schools would see a “lower restoration (of funding than the) current funding model.”

Colby adds that the May budget revision “does not make the (Davis Joint Unified School District) whole for 2013-14″ by restoring all of the budget cuts and deferrals that the state passed down to local school districts during the state budget crisis.

“It will take multiple years of increased state funding to restore program levels” to what they were in 2007, when the state cuts began to occur, Colby’s notes indicate.

In addition, “many mechanical and policy issues (stemming from the new funding formula) remain unsolved,” Colby remarked. “There is plenty of work left to be done by the Legislature.”

Colby estimates that Brown’s proposal to allocate $1 billion statewide to help implement the new Common Core academic standards would translate into about $1.4 million, or about $170 per pupil, for the Davis school district.

Elsewhere on the agenda, the school board will:

* Hear a presentation on the district’s plans to implement AB 9, “Seth’s Law,” which “mandates sweeping and universal attention to bullying behavior” at school, according to the agenda packet.

A local school district committee has been meeting since last fall to consider “conditions that are influencing current trends in student behavior, current programs and services, gaps and obstacles” as well as next steps that could “promote safety of every kind” at school. The presentation is scheduled for 30 minutes.

* Consider a resolution establishing a local Education Protection Account, as per the provisions of Proposition 30, approved by California voters last fall.

* Conduct a public hearing regarding funding flexibility for several categorical programs during the 2013-14 school year, followed by consideration of a resolution allowing the school district to “flex” those funds.

The agenda also includes several recognition items:

* The Davis School Arts Foundation will present an $18,000 check to support a variety of arts-related school projects.

* The trustees will recognize the Citrus Circuits team, which recently competed in the FIRST Robotics World Championship in St. Louis where it took first place in its division, finishing in the top 12 of more than 2,700 teams. The Citrus Circuits team is composed of students from Da Vinci and Davis high schools and Emerson, Harper and Holmes junior highs.

* The trustees will honor a number of retiring employees, including Stephen Bristow, Willett Elementary teacher, 17 years; Sharyn Carlton, Birch Lane Elementary teacher, 30 years; Laurel Clumpner, principal, Davis Adult School, 28 years; Katherine Douglas, Davis Parent Nursery School, 18 years; Jeff DuPertuis, elementary music, 20 years; Jane Knox, Willett Elementary teacher, 29 years; and Pamela Mari, executive director of student services and secondary programs.

Thursday’s 7 p.m. meeting will be in the Community Chambers at Davis City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd. The meeting will be carried live on Davis cable Channel 17 and online as live streaming video at www.djusd.tv.
