Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (1)

A recent law made major changes in the way that the state allocates funding to schools.  What will you do to ensure that the public understands your local control formula for school spending and your plan to measure outcomes?
Answer from Julian Diaz:

I would like to see community forums held to allow our community the opportunty to attend and learn more on how schools and districts are funded. It is important parents/community members know what brings in the dollars and how they are to be targeted.
