California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s May Revise of the state budget may treat the Pleasanton Unified School District (PUSD) a little better than the original January version, said the district’s top financial official.Deputy Superintendent of Business Services Micaela Ochoa told the school board at its May 21 meeting that, although the Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) increase in the state budget is $154,000 lower than in January for the 2019/20 school year, it will be offset by an increase in the state’s pickup of a little more of the State Teachers Retirement System (STRS) contribution. The exact amount is not known yet, because the governor is still negotiating with the Legislature over trailer bills for funding.

That means the contribution from the district would be going down, a positive for the district, said Ochoa.
