NEWS RELEASE -- Barnett Calls for Pay Cut, Parcel Tax to Save District from Insolvency

NEWS RELEASE, October 31, 2011

Barnett Calls for Pay Cut, Parcel Tax to Save District from Insolvency

District Facing Budget Cuts of $60 to $110 million

Plan would extend school year, maintain class sizes and protect programs

Calls for saving $92 million by deferring raises, a 10% pay cut and
restructuring health care plan. A proposed November 2012 parcel tax would
restore $60 million in pay.

SAN DIEGO ­ San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) Board Trustee Scott
Barnett released his "Plan to Save Our Schools" today.

"Bold, yet prudent action is needed to save our schools and protect our
children's education," said Barnett, who joined then SDUSD board less then
a year ago, and whose two daughters attend SDUSD high schools.

"The first thing we must do is stop digging a bigger budget hole," said
Barnett. "While it is true the state legislature is not giving our schools
the funding we desperately need, it is also true that our school board has
been spending money we don't have."

Previous Board cut school year and promised raises to kick in next July.

Barnett discussed, how in reaction to the State of California cutting
funds to SDUSD, the previous school board has raided reserves, cut the
school year by Five days, but also promised raises which are
"unaffordable." He also pointed out that the preliminary staff proposal to
avoid mid-year cuts this year and plans for next years budget calls for
reducing reserves $25 million and selling $21 million in district land.

"One-time fixes--to cover ongoing expenditures--such as raiding our
precious reserves (and proposals to sell our land assets) is one of the
reasons our credit rating was recently downgraded," said Barnett.
Moody's Investor Services last week downgraded SDUSD Credit Rating

"We are at the edge of a cliff, said Barnett. "If we don't start acting
prudently now, it may be too late to save our district from insolvency and
state take over."

Three year "Plan to Save Our Schools" has the following elements:
€ Maintain current reserve levels.
€ School closures not required.
€ No land sales.
€ Maintain current class sizes. (Note: if full mid-year cuts are triggered
by State in January, class size increases will likely be required in K-3
to balance budget and avoid insolvency.)
€ Maintain current level of visual and performing arts and athletic
programs.
€ Maintain current level of custodial, landscaping, and other classified
positions.
€ No further cuts to nurse and counselor staffing levels.
€ Maintain school police at current level


Ongoing costs contained in plan

€ Increase school year by 5 days as currently planned starting September
2013.

€ Ending these "furlough days" will cost approximately $17 million.

€ Maintain negotiated "step and column" employee raises. Cost:
Approximately $12 million. (Both of these costs are already counted in
anticipated budget shortfall of $60 million for 12-13.)
Savings and Revenues

€ Eliminate proposed pay raises. Saves $21 million in 12-13. $22 million
in 13-14. $43 million ongoing costs saved.

€ Restructure health plans to save $12 million annually. (Currently all
district employees and dependents get a variety of health care options
with no premiums charged. Healthcare costs SDUSD about $165 million a
year. This proposal would modify the benefit so all employees and
dependents still could get FREE Kaiser, but would have to pay for any
additional costs if they select other health plan providers. This would
save SDUSD approximately $12 million a year.)

€ 10% pay cut starting July 1, 2012 for all employees would save
approximately $60 million a year. (10% cut would be AFTER restoration of
furlough days and after payment of step and column raises. Plan would also
have a sliding scale, where employees earning over $150,000 would be cut
more then 10% and the % cut in salary would be reduced at reduced salary
levels.)

Possible sliding scale would have smaller pay cuts at these thresholds:
€ $100- $150,000;

€ $75-$100,000;

€ $50-$75,000;

€ $25-$50,000;

€ NO PAY CUT for SDUSD employees earning $25,000 or less.

€ $18,000 School Board to take 10% cut

"Instituting the pay cuts after the salary increases occur from ending
furlough days, and after the payment of "step and column" pay increases,
as well as having a sliding scale which reduces the burden at lower
salaries (with no pay cut for our lowest earners) makes this plan a bit
more palatable," said Barnett.


Unions must agree to concessions by end of calendar year in order to
effectively implement plan.

"Eliminating $21 million in raises, and implementing $60 million pay cuts,
and saving $12 million in health care costs, will require our public
employee unions to approve this plan by end of year," said Barnett. "If
this plan is not in place and mid year cuts are triggered, then it may be
too late to avoid intervention by the state."


New revenue

€ November 2012 -- $50 per parcel tax to raise $60 million a year and
restore cut salaries.

"I know this plan to save our school district places a terrible burden on
our teachers and other employees. But the pay cut must be agree to be
implemented starting July 2012 in order to balance our budget and get the
necessary short-term loans to meet our approximately $80 million a month
payroll and other costs," said Barnett, who headed of the San Diego County
Taxpayers Association for 7 years. "I will urge my colleagues to place a
parcel tax on the November ballot, and will ask voters to support this
ballot measure, which could end employee pay cuts after only 6 months,"
said Barnett.

"I know this plan has something for everyone to dislike," said Barnett.
"Employees will bear the terrible burden of a pay cut, and taxpayers will
be asked to dig in their pockets. But this plan saves our district from
insolvency and state take over. And it maintains our most important
educational programs, while protecting our reserves and our assets from
liquidation."

NEWS RELEASE (CORRECTED) -- Moody's Downgrades San Diego School District Credit Rating

NEWS RELEASE from the San Diego Unified School District, Oct. 27, 2011

(CORRECTED) MOODY'S DOWNGRADES SAN DIEGO UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT RATING

SAN DIEGO – Moody's Investor Service today issued a credit downgrade for the General Obligation Bonds of the San Diego Unified School District from Aa 1 to Aa2. According to Moody's, the one notch downgrade reflects "the district's substantially narrowed financial flexibility after material draws on reserves in recent years."

The credit downgrade does not impact existing debt but could impact future credit issuances of the district should the rating not be upgraded before a new issue. In the statement issued by Moody's, the downgrade was based on the district practice of funding ongoing expenditures with one time sources. Moody's did indicate that the district's debt portfolio was "uncomplicated and manageable" and that the rating could improve with a "materially strengthened financial position" in the future.

"The credit rating agencies periodically review the financial position of public agency borrowers to make adjustments based on changing circumstances,' said Ron Little, Chief Financial Officer for the district. "This rating downgrade, while disappointing, is understandable given the continuing fiscal challenges faced by the district and the pending midyear K-12 education budget cuts potentially coming from the state."

According to Little, the downgrade has no immediate financial impact on the district.

"This credit downgrade does underscore the importance of sound and prudent budget solutions for our 2012/13 budget now under development," said Little. "We have been actively developing budget reduction strategies for the Board of Education to consider that would address the concerns raised by Moody's regarding the district's financial position."

"This rating downgrade, while disappointing, is understandable given the continuing fiscal challenges faced by the district and the pending midyear K-12 education budget cuts potentially coming from the State."

According to Little, the credit downgrade would increase borrowing costs for the district next year when the district issues Tax Revenue Anticipation Notes (TRANS) for operational expenses in the 2012-13 budget year. He stressed that the downgrade has no immediate financial impact on the district.

MEDIA ADVISORY -- SD Unified, SD Community Colleges Boards Hold Joint Meeting

MEDIA ADVISORY from the San Diego Unified School District, Oct. 17, 2011

SAN DIEGO UNIFIED, SAN DIEGO COMMUNITY COLLEGE BOARDS HOLD JOINT MEETING

WHAT: Joint meeting between the boards of the San Diego Unified School
District and San Diego Community College District.

WHEN/WHERE: 5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2011, Educational Cultural Complex,
4343 Ocean View Blvd. (92113)

DETAILS: The Boards of San Diego County's largest school and community
college districts will hold their first joint meeting in many years. Board
members are scheduled to discuss the current collaborations between
schools and colleges, such as accelerated-college programs,
career-technical education and two high schools that are located on San
Diego Community College District campuses. Community colleges in San Diego

the San Diego Community College District. Whether it's a student taking a
community college class at a high school and receiving transferrable
college credit, to our high schools located at community colleges, this is
an important partnership. I look forward to this public discussion." --
Bill Kowba, Superintendent, San Diego Unified School District.

PHOTOS/INTERVIEWS: Board members from San Diego Unified School District
will be available for interview prior to the meeting.

MEDIA ADVISORY: 6th Graders Get Netbooks to Make Learning-on-the-Go a Reality

MEDIA ADVISORY from the San Diego Unified School District, Oct. 13, 2011


6th Graders Get Netbooks to Make Learning-on-the-Go a Reality

WHAT:  As part of the Federal Communications Commission Learning-on-the-Go program, San Diego Unified School District is launching one of the FCC’s largest digital broadband pilot grants in the nation. All 6th grade students at ten district middle schools are being issued netbooks with broadband access.

WHEN: Friday, Oct. 14, 2011
              10:00 a.m. Launch presentation and issuance of netbooks to 6th grade students
              10:15 a.m. Students logging on and exploring the capabilities of this new digital learning device

WHERE:  Dana Middle School, 1775 Chatsworth Blvd, San Diego (92106)

DETAILS:  The learning landscape is changing in schools throughout San Diego Unified School District. As part of the FCC’s Learning On-the-Go program, the district is launching a pilot that supports off-campus wireless Internet connectivity for mobile learning devices. Education doesn’t stop at the schoolyard gate or the library door. Digital textbooks and other innovative wireless devices allow students to learn in a real-world context, inside the classroom and beyond. Because of their low cost and accessibility, these mobile devices can also help advance digital equality.

Over the last three years the district has established a Mobile Learning Program to seamlessly integrate ubiquitous, one-to-one computing and other 21st century technology into all teaching and learning throughout the curriculum. The FCC Learning on the Go program will take the San Diego Unified program to the next level to meet the needs of today’s 21st century learners. These 6th graders were among the first group of district classrooms to benefit from Proposition S and the i21 Interactive classroom initiative that included a 1:1 computer to student learning environment in every one of our core curriculum classrooms.

Now, they will not only be able to take advantage of the i21 classroom experience but, as part of the Learning-on-the-Go (LOGO) program, be able to continue their learning at home using online digital resources. Students will be issued a Netbook for the school year that is equipped with filtered wireless internet access. Now students will be able to complete assignments online along with access to the district’s powerful digital instructional programs as well as filtered use of the Internet for research and in-depth study. This ability to connect outside the school day will provide access to online textbooks and cutting-edge interactive learning tools 24 hours a day.

PHOTOS/INTERVIEWS:
  • Students and officials speak to students about the significance of the LOGO program
  • Interviews with district officials, students, site administrators and teachers
  • Students will be issued their netbook computer for the first time
  • Students logging on and exploring their new digital tool

MEDIA ADVISORY: Nation's First School “BUS FARM” Unveiled

MEDIA ADVISORY from the San Diego Unified School District, Oct. 12, 2011

NATION’S FIRST SCHOOL “BUS FARM” UNVEILED

WHAT: As part of the nationwide National School Lunch Week and National Farm to School Month, San Diego Unified will introduce its new “Bus Farm” program, which features a school bus converted to a farm on wheels.

WHEN: Thursday, Oct. 13, 2011
             10:30 a.m. Farm Bus groundbreaking ceremony
             10:40 a.m. Farm Bus tour and fresh produce from local farmer

WHERE: Dana Middle School, 1775 Chatsworth Blvd, San Diego (92106)

DETAILS: A leader in the Farm to School program, San Diego Unified is unveiling the nation’s first Bus Farm. The Bus Farm will connect students to healthy school meals, local farm culture and create hands-on learning opportunities as a project of the district’s Farm to School program. The farm on wheels was inspired by Truck Farm of Wicked Delicate Film Production and design support has been provided by local artist and Chef, Melissa Mayer, and Suzie’s Farm. The Bus Farm will inspire healthy eating and active learning by bringing a farm to schools. Next year, the Bus Farm will officially “hit the road” and head out to schools across the district.

Last year, the United States House of Representatives declared October National Farm to School Month, recognizing the strong role Farm to School plays in promoting good health and strong economies. San Diego Unified’s Farm to School Program seeks to increase children’s participation in the school meal program and consumption of fruits and vegetables, thereby improving childhood nutrition, reducing hunger, and preventing obesity and obesity-related diseases. The program decreases the distance food travels between farmers and students to 25 miles from the San Diego County border and invests 25% of the annual fresh fruit and vegetable budget in local fresh foods.

PHOTOS/INTERVIEWS:
  • Students and officials walk through a large farm in a school bus.
  • Interviews with district officials, students, local farmers and Farm to School experts
  • Attendees will be treated to the local “Harvest of the Month” from Stehly Farms.
  • Large and colorful displays of vegetable plants built into a school bus.
