The Lake Elsinore Unified School District will hold a special meeting to discuss school bus service and concerned parents are encouraged to attend.
The meeting is set for 5 p.m. July 30 at the district headquarters board room located at 545 Chaney Street.
"District staff will present cost and route options for temporarily restoring bus service to 'geographically remote areas,' or locations where extraordinary topography, traffic conditions, and long distances preclude walking or bicycling to school," the meeting notice stated.
Bus service for special needs students is not affected by the cuts.
The draconian measure was triggered by Governor Jerry Brown’s proposal to cut for the upcoming school year.
However, the $496 million in funding was restored by the governor and he signed the state’s 2012-13 budget last month, but the level of spending presumes passage by voters in November of an education financing package known as AB 1476. If the measure fails, K-12 education faces mid-year budget cuts that could impact the district.
LEUSD officials have warned they are proceeding with caution given the uncertainty on state funding.
