The Nevada Joint Union High School District held its second of two public forums focused on budget concerns last night. Currently the high school district is struggling with potential cuts that have been put in place because of ongoing issues with California’s state budget. The forums were designed to inform Nevada County residents of the district’s financial status as well as to what may happen as a result of the upcoming elections.
District Superintendent Marianne Cartan is pleased with the outcome of the two forums and information shared with the public.
County Superintendent of Schools Holly Hermansen shared that funding is difficult to comprehend, but that she is pleased with the public’s participation and interest.
Hermansen also took time to share information about Proposition 30 and Proposition 38 because both propositions involve school funding.
The district will now analyze the public input which was provided on index cards and incorporate the information into next steps regarding budget decisions.
