The Board of Education approved a budget for fiscal year 2013-14 this week. The budget includes $11 million in reductions that the school board had OK'd earlier this year. Among those reductions are transportation cuts, the closure of Monroe K-8 School, and the elimination of grades 6-8 at Burcham K-8 School.
The Long Beach Unified School District is required to file a budget with the Los Angeles County Office of Education by July 1. The newest budget does not yet include assumptions based upon the California state budget recently approved by the state Legislature because Gov. Jerry Brown has not yet signed the state budget. Once the state budget is finalized, LBUSD staff will recommend any necessary budget revisions to the school board.
