News Release 

State Board of Education adjusts budget reduction proposal 

Revised CDE budget identifies $11.5 million in proposed reductions for fiscal year 2021-22

DENVER –  The State Board of Education during a special meeting today revised the Department of Education’s budget proposal for the 2021-22 fiscal year to include a total of $11.5 million in proposed reductions.   

During its regular meeting earlier this month, the board identified $29 million in reductions to education grant programs and the department’s operating expenses, an amount equal to 10% of CDE’s discretionary budget. Those reductions were identified in response to a request for state agencies to identify a 10% reduction in their budgets because of the economic decline during the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the most recent state budget forecast being more optimistic, the board fully restored proposed reductions in the School Counselor Corp Program, Concurrent Enrollment Expansion Grant, Career Development Incentives Program, Innovative Learning Opportunity Pilot, P-TECH and ASCENT. In addition, proposed cuts were reduced for BEST Cash Grants and Capital to Charter School Facilities.
 
The complete revised budget reduction proposal is available on the website. 

The revised budget reduction proposal will be submitted to the legislature in November for its consideration during the 2021 session.
