On Wednesday, September 5, the NUSD Budget Advisory Committee held its first monthly meeting of the 2012-13 school year. Those in attendance included teachers, staff, principals, community members and board members.
I shared budget information including the potential negative impacts should the Governor's tax initiative, Proposition 30, fail. The impact will be a loss of $3.3 million on-going revenue which would result in reductions in teachers, staff and administrators, possible reduction in number of school days and work days, and class sizes at all grade levels.
A webpage dedicated to NUSD Budget Information has been created and can be found here. Information on both Proposition 30 and 38 can be found on this site as well as a short piece from School Services of California called "What Happens if Proposition 38 Passes and Proposition 30 Fails?" In addition, information presented at the September 5 meeting and future meetings can be found under Budget Advisory Committee on the NUSD Budget Information page.
