Proposition’s success means local schools will not face trigger cuts this year
FAIRFIELD – Solano County Superintendent of Schools Jay Speck thanked voters today for their support of education with the passage of California Proposition 30.
“We are very thankful our schools will not have to face trigger cuts to their budgets this school year,” said Speck. “Revenues generated by Proposition 30 over the next seven years will support K-12 schools and community colleges beginning in the current school year. The passage of Prop 30 means that Solano schools will not have to cut $24.1 million or possibly reduce the school year by up to three weeks.”
“The Solano County Office of Education works in partnership with local school districts to ensure their ongoing fiscal solvency,” continued Speck. “Since the revenue generated from Proposition 30 depends on how well the state economy is doing, we will continue to monitor its effects. Our schools are still severely underfunded compared to other states, and we hope that Prop 30 will bring some stabilization to our school districts’ budgets.”
