M&O Budget Override

M & O Budget Override
Posted on 2/18/2009

The Glendale Union High School District is currently in the fourth year of a budget override.  By state statute, every five years, a special election must be held with a majority of the community voting to approve the continuation of a maintenance and operation (M&O) budget override.  The Governing Board has authorized a Blue Ribbon Citizens Committee to review the M&O budget in order to make recommendations on whether or not to call for the election and to recommend program cuts or reductions if the override funding is not available next year.

Public presentations are being planned to provide information and to gather input from our community.  The format calls for the communities of three schools to gather at one location.  While it is preferred that you attend the presentation with our school, if your schedule does not allow for this, please feel free to attend any of the presentations.  Your attendance and involvement in this decision making process is important the students of our district.
