Dr. John Deasy, Superintendent, sent an informative to Board Members, union leadership and principals on October 19, 2012, in which he detailed the financial impacts of Propositions 30 and 38, which are on the November 6, 2012, ballot. You may recall that Governor Brown’s budget for 2012-13 was predicated upon the passage of Proposition 30. In the interim, Proposition 38 was introduced by Molly Munger, civil rights attorney, and the California PTA. Previous issues of Update have compared the two competing propositions and explained the impact of both on the District. Dr. Deasy’s memo presents in stark reality the impact of the defeat of Proposition 30. Because we realize that some AALA members may not have had an opportunity to read Dr. Deasy’s informative, we would like to highlight some key points that were made.
