MOORLACH UPDATE — California School District Rankings, Group 12 — August 27, 2018

Group 12 provides the next 67 California public school districts. This traunch represents $5 billion in cumulative unrestricted net deficits. The Unrestricted Net Positions (UNPs) range between negative $1,106 and negative $1,294 per capita. For a point of reference, only one of California’s 72 Community College Districts had a UNP worse than negative $798.

We only see one of the 27 Orange County school districts in this grouping, and it is located in my Senate District:

#743 Irvine Unified #911

We should be thankful that The Irvine Company has been a generous contributor to the district’s foundation. Irvine Unified was a small rural district back in 1978, when Proposition 13 passed, limiting its funding over the past 40 years.

Now that we are in the bottom 22 percent-quartile, without giving too much away, the Fiscal Crisis and Management Assistance Team (FCMAT), which also makes emergency loans to school districts, has disclosed their lending activity since inception. Here are the total loans that have been made between 1990 and 2015:

N/A West Fresno Elementary (Closed) $ 1,300,000 N/A

#348 Emery Unified $ 1,300,000 #387
#682 Oakland Unified $100,000,000 #930
#707 Inglewood Unified $ 29,000,000 #842
#742 King City Joint Unified High $ 13,000,000 #556

#750 Vallejo City Unified $ 60,000,000 #867
#789 Compton Unified $ 19,951,259 #903
#853 West Contra Costa $ 28,525,000 #927
#904 Coachella Valley Unified $ 7,300,000 #891

All of the loans have been paid in full, except those for Inglewood, King City, Vallejo and Oakland. Also Inglewood and Oakland will be mentioned in one of the Budget Trailer Bills that will be voted on this week.
