We Demand Financial Transparency on BHUSD Permit Issue
Petition Background (Preamble):
Bob Blatner, the Sacramento education expert brought in by the BHUSD Superintendent in mid 2009, explained to the Board that any savings would be negligible "budget dust." He went on to explain that while the cost of educating a child may be approx. $10,000, the SAVINGS recouped by removing them is not this number because ALL the incremental costs still exist with our without that student in the classroom - the teachers, custodians and administrative staff all still exist, the books already exist, the desks and lighting exist regardless of whether there's a body in the classroom or not. Unless the Board plans to CUT STAFF and CLOSE ONE OF ITS ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS, the costs will remain the same and they will recoup nearly nothing. Finally, the Board bases its projected costs on the mere speculation that the District will enter Basic Aid by 2010 and not bounce in and out of this designation as is expected.
The Board plans to vote permitted children out of the Beverly Hills Unified School District at their January 12th School Board meeting without EVER analyzing the financial data. This is not right.
