Funding of Mandated Programs: Effect on Public Education

Adopted March 1983 – Reaffirmed April 2015 – Education Commission

The California State PTA believes it is essential to appropriate adequate resources to fully fund all mandated programs and services. Since school districts are legally obligated to implement all mandates, enactment of such laws without sufficient funds for total implementation imposes severe fiscal constraints on the overall educational program of the district.
