Please note this summary is intended for informational purposes only, and should not be construed as either supporting or opposing any of the provisions in the proposed budget. Additionally, this summary is not meant to be an exhaustive analysis of the governor's proposed budget and instead focuses on the proposed revised budget for the State Department of Education, as well as key sections directly related to SDE found under the budget for the Office of the State Comptroller. As a result, programs possibly impacting K-12 in Connecticut that are found under other state agency budgets have not been analyzed or included in this summary.
