In response to the community interest in State and District budget issues, a second Budget Forum (see March forum below) with Jonathan Kaplan of the California Budget Project and Deputy Superintendent Javetta Cleveland took place on April 19th. These videos of the forum will help you to understand the state of California’s budget, how it is affecting education, and more specifically the impact expected on the BUSD budget over the next two years. The video is broken into two parts.
