Proposition Information

As you may know, a Proposition Question is on the April 2 ballot that could potentially affect the programs and services provided to our students.  Though this Question was not placed on the ballot by the District, if approved the Proposition will result in a permanent $1.2 million reduction to the Education Fund annually.  The District anticipates significant reductions to the learning opportunities currently provided to our students such as:


  • Reduce staff and services by eliminating up to 15 salaried positions, the majority of which would be teachers
  • Reduction in number of Advanced Placement/Honors, World Language, Band/Choir, Art, and Career/Technical Education courses
  • Eliminate approximately 10% of athletic and extra-curricular offerings
  • Reduce Instructional Materials Budget by 10%
