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 Matthew Reid:

The first step will be to understand the changes myself! I agree that this is a very important issue and I will make sure that the changes are discussed at a School Board meeting. However, very few parents attend those meetings--something I hope to change--so I will also send letters to the editor of our two local papers explaining the basics of the changes (as space allows). I would also see whether a public meeting to discuss the changes would be appropriate, and whether it would get greater attendance than a regular school board meeting.
