Cuts Ahead For Sac City School District

Although the governor has committed $50 billion in funding to education, his budget plan also calls for school districts statewide to cut administrative costs by $1.5 billion.

And it doesn’t look good for the Sacramento City Unified School District. Jonathan Raymond is the district’s superintendent.

“It was a tough day. We learned, after studying the governor’s budget that our budget target went from $18.5 million to now it looks like $28-$30 million.”

Raymond says they’ll be looking at making cuts…including staff reductions.

“Between 80% and 90% of a school district’s budget is staff and it’s personnel. But we’re not just simply talking about massive layoffs. We’re talking about looking across our budget for savings in every we can.”

District officials have to come up with a balanced budget plan by mid-March.
