OC school districts face budget cuts

In Local News, News

Even with Proposition 30 stopping further budget cuts, Orange County school districts are planning to spend about $65 million less this year than in 2012, according to the Orange County Register.

Orange County schools face the drawbacks of Proposition 30, with the cuts in salaries and benefits along with the increase in class size and school programs.

The schools face the decision of shorter school years, fewer benefits for its permanent employees and more mandatory furlough days that will reduce the districts’ cost of employee pay.

Orange County schools are planning to cut up to $158 million. However, districts are expecting the cuts to go deeper.

With cautious optimism, Gov. Jerry Brown unveiled the state’s proposal to give schools a 1.7 percent increase in the per-student funds.

On Dec. 15, 2012, districts filed an initial spending budget with the premonition of Proposition 30 failing. School districts will file updates in March.
