What’s at the School Board This Week

Discussions of Special Ed Restructuring, Bond Measures

After a few weeks off, the Santa Barbara School Board returns to session on Tuesday evening with a somewhat light agenda. Items of interest include an update on the ongoing restructuring of the district’s Special Education department and a discussion about the specific facility priorities to be funded by Bond Measures Q and R should they be passed by the voters in November. Both measures — one for the elementary district and the other for the secondary district — look to provide a combined $110 million for capital improvements at all school sites in the district by extending existing property tax fees, not raising them, further into the future.
