Where’s the School District Budget?
It’s been nearly 4 months since the elections have been completed and the AUSD (Antioch Unified School District) is working on the budget for the coming year, however the changes , cuts to personnel, student services and others have yet to be publicized.
I thought that the budget was part of the “Transparency of Government” everyone was touting during the campaign. Why shouldn’t parents, concerned taxpayers and even students be kept in the loop, when these hard decisions are being made? So why not publish the budget warts and all on the district website and in the local press every quarter, or isn’t the board looking for public input?
