AUSD makes next round of cuts

A standing room only crowd again packed the Alhambra Unified School District board meeting Tuesday night to decry the loss of more valued personnel. In March it was the adult ESL program; this time it was librarians, bus drivers, custodians and others. In the audience was Terry Cannon, an Alhambra High School employee of the year whom the LA Times profiled as a victim in “California, home of the never-ending school budget cuts.” In all the board approved 35 staff reductions. Cannon was among the three library technical assistants. Other cuts included three health assistants, 10 custodians and 17 general bus drivers.

  1. Question 1:
    Does ratification of budget elimination require school board member’s signature?
    Question 2:
    If so, which school board members signed ratification of budget elimination?
    Question 3:
    If so, what problems in the provision of educational services will surface?
    Question 4:
    Who is ready to sell provision of such services to the AUSD assuming there is an interest to address problems addressed in question #3?
