Fresno Unified school funding forum set for Edison High

The Fresno BeeNovember 6, 2013 

The California Endowment will host a community forum with parents at Edison High School Thursday to talk about new state funding headed to Fresno Unified and districts across California this year.

Parents will have the opportunity to talk with school board members about how to spend the new Local Control Funding dollars, which were appropriated by lawmakers this year as a way to help districts with large numbers of low-income students and English learners.

Fresno Unified's Superintendent Michael Hanson has said the district will get $15 million this year, which he's proposed spending on lengthening the school day at certain schools. That plan is subject to negotiations with the local teachers union.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the meeting starts at 6 p.m.
