Teachers, parents, students, Carpinteria community: the Carpinteria Unified School District is proposing cuts for $1.1 million. Instructional aides, librarians, custodians, bus drivers, Carpinteria High School athletics professionals, will all have their hours reduced.
Academic achievement is down. Test scores are down 15 percent. Administration costs in hiring and salaries are increasing. No district admin cuts are being proposed; this is totally unfair.
These major cuts to the education of our children will affect their test scores again. As a parent of a daughter in the school district, I do not agree with these major cuts. If you disagree as well, please show up on April 9 at 5:30 p.m. for the next school board meeting. Let your voice be heard.
