A public hearing, discussion and adoption of the 2012-13 budget is atop the agenda at Thursday night’s Benicia Unified School District Board of Trustees meeting.
Tim Rahill, the district’s chief business official, will ask the board to adopt the budget that uses information from Gov. Jerry Brown’s May Revise, which has been on display at the BUSD district office, 350 East K St., since Monday for public inspection.
As Rahill wrote in a report to the board, nothing about the governor’s budget is certain.
“The May Revise … relies upon the voters of California approving a November 2012 ballot measure that extends certain State taxes,” he wrote. “If the taxes are not approved, then funding would be taken from schools in the amount of $441 per student. That amounts to a loss in state funding of $2.1 million for Benicia USD.”
