ROWLAND UNIFIED INVITES COMMUNITY TO
BUDGET AND BOND UPDATE MEETINGS APRIL 10 AND 12
ROWLAND HEIGHTS, CA – MARCH 29, 2012 – Rowland Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Maria Ott invites the community to informational meetings that will share an overview on the District’s operational budget and the impact from the State’s budget on the Rowland Unified School District. An update on bond modernization projects will also be shared. Meetings will take place on Tuesday, April 10 at 6 p.m. at Rowland High School in the Hideout, (located at 2000 S. Otterbein Avenue in Rowland Heights) and on Thursday, April 12 at 6 p.m. at Telesis Academy of Science & Math, (located at 2800 E. Hollingworth Street in West Covina.) District Spanish and Chinese translators will be available.
The Rowland Unified Board of Education announced last month that it would not be laying off permanent teachers this year – one of the few Districts in the region to not implement layoffs or furlough days for 2011-12.
“Due to our strong reserves and prudent fiscal management, we have weathered the reductions made for the current year,” said Superintendent Ott. “However, it is important for us to share with the public that the fate of the 2012-13 budget is based on the tax initiatives proposed for the November election ballot.”
Modernization and Measure R Bond information will also be presented at the meeting.
For further information, the public can call the Rowland Unified School District Public Information Office at (626) 854-8352.
The Rowland Unified School District is proud to serve 16,000 students at 20 elementary and secondary schools in the communities of Rowland Heights, Walnut, La Puente, City of Industry, and West Covina. More than 5,000 adults (16+) are also served by the Rowland Adult and Community Education School. For more information about Rowland Unified, call (626) 965-2541 or visit www.RowlandSchools.org.
