FUSD Board Adopts Resolution in Support of “Full & Fair Funding of California’s Public Schools”

The Fillmore Unified School District is calling on state lawmakers to increase California public school funding to at least the national average by next year, and equal to or higher than the top 10 states in per pupil funding by 2025. The Fillmore Gazette reports that the school board of the Ventura County district unanimously approved the resolution, which refers to the series of financial reports in Getting Down to Facts II to support its claim that “California’s investment in public schools is out of alignment with its wealth.” About 3,750 K-12 students are enrolled in Fillmore Unified and, of those, more than three-quarters qualify for free-or-reduced-price meals.
