About Fiscal Vitality

  • Fiscal Vitality is one of three priority areas  beacause a financially healthy District is critical to providing the necessary resources and services to students with the greatest need. This website is dedicated to making the budgeting process more accessible and transparent. We will update this page with presentations, reports, and features as they become available. Below you will find pages with more information:
    Current Snapshot:  OUSD has closed the books on 2017-18 and ensured that no mid-year cuts will happen. Currently, OUSD is working through some emerging details on AB 1840 (under which the state will provide addtional financial support to OUSD if it meets certain benchmarks). At the same time, the staff is developing the options we need to meet our fiscal challenges and engaging in a listening campaign to help vet those ideas with the larger community. See below for more information and check back frequently. 
    Thank you.
