LEUSD School Bus Service Subject Of July 30 Meeting

The meeting is set for July 30 at 5 p.m. at the district headquarters board room located at 545 Chaney Street.

The Lake Elsinore Unified School District will hold a special meeting to discuss school bus service and concerned parents are encouraged to attend.

The meeting is set for 5 p.m. July 30 at the district headquarters board room located at 545 Chaney Street.

"District staff will present cost and route options for temporarily restoring bus service to 'geographically remote areas,' or locations where extraordinary topography, traffic conditions, and long distances preclude walking or bicycling to school," the meeting notice stated.

Bus service for special needs students is not affected by the cuts.

The draconian measure was triggered by Governor Jerry Brown’s proposal to cut for the upcoming school year.

However, the $496 million in funding was restored by the governor and he signed the state’s 2012-13 budget last month, but the level of spending presumes passage by voters in November of an education financing package known as AB 1476. If the measure fails, K-12 education faces mid-year budget cuts that could impact the district.

LEUSD officials have warned they are proceeding with caution given the uncertainty on state funding.

If the funding was restored why are they still cutting bus service?? Looks like another ploy to get us to vote for their "financing package." Really don't see how my grand kids are going to get to school.

If you read between the lines the article says that funding is restored pending a successful outcome of the tax increase in the November election. Half of the current budget is written based on a tax increase in November, no tax increase no balanced budget. Don't you wish you could budget your household expenses this way?

Ken, thank you. I guess that makes sense. But I have two sayings: "Nothing makes sense anymore," and "This country can't last much longer."

I'm with you there.

Governor Brown cuts home-to-school transportation but puts in back in the budget which requires passage of his raising TAX proposal (educational financing package). The same Governor Brown who signed into law the Dream Act which provides $45 to $80 million for undocumented college students but leaves your kids walking to school. You figure it out.
