Public service announcement – the Prop. H committee will be sponsoring several community meetings this fall to engage the public in discussion about priorities for Prop. H funds in the coming year. Prop. H established the Public Education Enrichment Fund, which contributes city money to PreK – 12 education every year. One third of the fund each year can be used for general purposes, so the Prop. H committee was created to provide community input into how the fund should be spent. In past years the Superintendent and the committee came up with vastly different funding priorities, resulting in confusion and some acrimony. Let’s hope that this year things go more smoothly, and interested community members can help by sharing their input now.
These meetings will allow senior staff to hear the community’s priorities and align them with the strategic priorities of the district. Here’s the schedule of meetings:
