New Haven Unified School Board update
Submitted By Rick La Plante
On September 4, 2012, the Board of Education received a presentation on Real Property analysis and study performed by Dutra-Cerro-Graden. The study was in anticipation of a need to investigate all options to generate local revenues to face severe financial challenges of school districts in California and in particular, New Haven Unified School District. Staff was directed by the Board to proceed with the next steps that includes the formation of a District Advisory Committee consistent with State law.
Also, the Board:
Welcomed 2012-13 student board members Cindy Nguyen of James Logan High School and Perla Lucatero-Ulloa of Conley-Caraballo High School.
Approved a report on actual revenues, expenses and fund balanced for the 2011-12 fiscal year.
Approved a resolution in support of Propositions 30 and 38 on the November ballot. Prop 30 would raise an estimated $7 billion to $9 billion for schools and other state priorities by increasing the state sales tax and by increasing state income tax for the top approximately 3 percent of taxpayers. Prop 38 would raise an estimated $10 billion, all for public schools and early childhood development, by increasing income taxes for most Californians.
