Alisal parents object to trustee

Some parents in the Alisal Union School District are objecting to the appointment of a state trustee to oversee the operations in the district.   Parents formed the community group several years ago, and say they have been working to vote out failing school board members, as well as encourage better test scores.   The state appointed a trustee earlier this year, after continued low-test-performance by students in the district.   Some parents, however, say the move is too little, too late, and say the financial cost is too high.

S.C. County Cuts 6/15/10 TDH

Yesterday(mon), the Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors voted to reduce funding to non-profit organizations for the upcoming fiscal year, however the cuts are less than had been proposed.   Supervisors had been considering cutting the 3.4-million dollar allocation to the county’s 48-supported non-profits by as much as 20-percent.   A preliminary cut of 12-percent was instead agreed upon.   Santa Cruz County is facing declining revenue for the 3rd year in a row.   20-percent cuts to the Health Services Agency and Human Services Department were agreed to, as were smaller cuts to the Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s office.   All the proposed cuts are scheduled for a final vote on June 24th. Supervisors are scheduled to continue working on budget matters all this week, as they try to close a 17-million dollar deficit.
