Gov. Jerry Brown’s May state budget revision, a bleacher replacement contract, and elimination of some classified services are on the agenda when Dixon Unified leaders meet tonight in Dixon.
Cecile Nunley, the 3,500-student district’s chief business official, will lead discussion of the budget. A Democrat, Brown is proposing a $96 billion spending plan, most of which has been set aside for K-12 schools, community colleges and the state’s two university systems. He wants to spend more money on low-income schools, which means Dixon’s will benefit, since a majority of its students are considered low-income, based on the numbers receiving free or reduced-fee lunches, and English language learners. The state Legislature has until June 15 to approve a budget.
