Special PTAC Meeting to Discuss the proposed PAUSD Budget

A special PTAC meeting was called for Tuesday, April 25, for our council to further discuss the proposed budget.     Details of the district budget are posted here  https://www.pausd.org/explore-pausd/board-education.

The purpose of the special meeting is to discuss if the council wants to make specific comments about budget items and priorities at future PAUSD board meetings, town halls or other forums.   These positions would need to voted on at the May 3 Executive Board meeting.

The meeting will be held in the SDC Front Conference Room on Tuesday April 25th from 11 am – 2 pm at the Churchill office.  PTA members are invited to attend and bring their own lunch.
