Four public hearings are on the agenda for Tuesday’s meeting of the Garden Grove Unified School District Board of Education.
When it meets at 7 p.m. in the Education Center, 10331 Stanford Ave., Garden Grove, the board will conduct hearings on:
• Special Education Service Plan and Annual Budget Plan;
• The proposed annual budget for 2012-13;
• A proposal to raise development fees for residential development from $2.97 to $3.20 per square foot, and from 47 cents to 51 cents per square foot;
• The waiver of sections of the state Education Code to allow a waiver for class-size penalties for grades four through eight for two years starting this fall.
The proposed budget is not a finished product; it’s typical that a true final budget won’t be available until the fall, based on funding figures from Sacramento.
Most funding for public schools comes from the State of California.
Also on the agenda is consideration of ratification of a tentative agreement between the GGUSD and the Garden Grove Education Association, which represents teachers and other faculty in the district.
The GGUSD serves most of Garden Grove as well as portions of Anaheim, Cypress, Fountain Valley, Santa Ana, Stanton and Westminster.
