In a Friday memo to the school board, Superintendent John Deasy has outlined the “devastating” financial impacts on LAUSD should Proposition 30 (Governor Jerry Brown’s proposed tax measure) not pass.
Deasy says that the only way the district could deal with such drastic cuts is by ending the school year “shortly after April.” The district would also be forced to cut school meals, AP exams, and daycare, according to the Deasy memo.
If Prop 30 fails, the school board will hold an emergency meeting within seven days “to begin to put into place the fiscal crisis plan.” You can read the full memo here.
