The Glendale Unified School District is facing millions in budget reductions and expects most of its $21.3 million in reserves to be depleted by the end of 2011. What expertise will you bring to discussions about solutions for budget cuts?
I've continually sought proper funding from Sacramento, and bring both expertise and results. I helped organized "State of the Schools" and "Adequate Funding" forums in our region to educate our stakeholders on the lack of funding for public education. I helped conduct the Health Insurance Enrollment Audit. Our school district saved over $300,000 annually. We've restructured our workers compensation program: annual savings of $2.4 million.
