Redwood City School District Community Budget Meetings
Redwood City School District faced the worst budget cuts in many decades. Due to the state budget crisis, the district was forced to cut $5.5 million from the 2009-10 budget, including administrators, teachers, counselors, and clerical staff. Class sizes increased at the K-3 level, and library hours were reduced. About $5 million more would have been cut, but the federal stimulus package allowed the district to save a number of programs including instrumental music, the Gifted and Talented Program (GATE), and a number of important staff positions.

The district will have to cut a minimum of $4.7 million dollars from the
2010-11 budget to cover the loss of federal stimulus funds. This number may grow depending on the proposed budget to be released by the governor on January 8. Keeping the community informed of budget developments is a top priority for the district and it has planned a series of interactive community budget meetings for January and February to provide a budget update to parents, staff and the public, and answer questions:
