Vacaville trustees hear governor’s ‘basic message’: Committed to education – The Reporter

By Richard Bammer

Vacaville Unified leaders on Thursday heard an update on Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposed $165 billion state budget for 2015-16 and “the basic message,” the district’s chief business official said, reflects a collective opinion that the national and state economies continue to show strength.

Meeting in the Educational Services Center, the seven-member governing board listened as Jane Shamieh told trustees that the “governor is committed” to boosting the bottom line for the nation’s largest public school system, with nearly 6.2 million students.

Quickly moving through her computer-aided slide presentation, saying trustees may have heard such data before, she noted that state revenues are robust, “even without the added boost provided by Proposition 30, the 2015-16 state revenues would be the highest ever.”
