La Verne State of The City and School District

La Verne State of The City and School District

Okay, so I was reading an article about the State of the City and School District in the City of La Verne.

Mayor Don Kendrick along with Bonita Unified Superintendent of Schools (which covers both San Dimas and La Verne) Gary Rapkin made a joint presentation to share how things are going along.

The City of La Verne portion stated that there are major budget cuts coming due to the fact that the federal government has dissolved all of the Redevelopment Agencies.  This will lower the budget for this year by $4M and then $2M in the following years.

The Bonita Unified School District is reported to be ready to tackle a loss of $5M for the next year if the voters do not approve the state's proposed tax increases on the November ballot.  (Right here I'm inserting a private rant.)

But Superintendent Rapkin said in spite of all of these cuts, "our schools are not surviving, but thriving!"  The district's 2011 Academic Performance Index rose for the ninth consecutive year to an all-time high of 854.  Rapkin said it's not simply about the test scores, though, it's also about arts, athletics and activities.  Coming from me, a parent in this district, I'd have to agree - it has been a well-rounded program up to this point in spite of losing $13,000,000 from their budget since the 2007-2008 school year.
