Governing Board Calls for Formation of Citizen’s Committee

Board members from Glendale Union High School District unanimously approved the formation of a citizen’s committee. The charge of the committee is to review GUHSD’s override funding and district needs.

The committee, made up of parents, community members, teachers, and students from all nine of the district’s schools, is charged to look at three issues. The first charge is to recommend whether the governing board should call or not call for an override renewal election and recommend budget reductions if an election is not held or fails. The second recommendation regarding the need for a capital outlay override election will also be made. The third charge is to investigate revenue generating options outside of override funding.

After the initial group meeting in February, co-chairs of the committee will host additional citizen meetings across the district to gather input from stakeholders. Afterwards, the original committee will reconviene in April to review community input and will make a recommendation to the board in May.
