NEWS RELEASE -- Special Tuesday Morning Board Meeting Tackles Budget Issues

News Release from the San Diego Unified School District, May 22, 2009


SAN DIEGO -- The continuing budget crisis in California -- and its
effects on San Diego Unified -- will be the topic of a special Board of
Education workshop starting at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 26, in the
Education Center auditorium, 4100 Normal Street.

Superintendent Terry Grier is expected to have budget figures for the
current and next school years, based on Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's May
15 revised estimate.

Because of the failure of the state budget propositions on May 19 and
the continued economic distress in the state, it is expected that Dr.
Grier will be proposing additional cuts on next year's school district

The meeting is open to the public and public testimony will be taken. It
will be televised on cable Ch. 16 (Cox/Time Warner within the district
boundaries) and streamed over the internet from the district website.

The regular, 5 p.m. meeting on Tuesday will still be held. That meeting
is also open to the public.
