What: Davis Board of Education meeting

When: 7 p.m. Thursday

Where: Harper Junior High School multipurpose room, 4000 E. Covell Blvd.

The Davis Board of Education will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday in Harper Junior High School’s multipurpose room, 4000 E. Covell Blvd., to review the outcome of Tuesday’s election, and consider the budgetary consequences for the Davis school district.

If California voters rejected statewide Proposition 30 on Tuesday, then the Davis school district is facing an immediate reduction in state funding in the range of $3.7 million.

If Davis-area voters rejected local school parcel tax Measure E, then the disctrict would be looking at an additional budget cut of about $3.2 million in the 2013-14 budget year. This year, Davis is receiving about $3.3 million from Measure A, which will expire in June. If Measure E fails to achieve the required two-thirds majority needed for approval, extending the roughly $3.2 million funded under Measure A for four additional years, then budget cuts in 2013-14 will be part of the school board’s planning process in coming months.

If both Prop. 30 and Measure E fail, the school district would be looking at a combined $6.9 million in budget reductions spread over this year and next. The meeting agenda summary notes, “Immediate cost savings options include operational and personnel reductions beyond those that are already in place. Additional savings could be realized through program reconfiguration or school closures. Neither of these options are easy and require further discussion and planning.”

If, on the other hand, both Proposition 30 and Measure E are approved, trustees will be facing a status quo budget scenario — i.e., funding for the school district’s programs at more or less the current level, but with no restoration of the staff reductions that resulted in larger class sizes this fall at local schools.

It is possible there may be some lingering questions regarding the election’s outcome on Thursday, depending on how quickly the Yolo County Elections Office — and counterpart agencies in other counties around the state — can process the large number of vote-by-mail ballots that reportedly were turned in at polling places on Tuesday.

Elsewhere on the agenda, the school board will:

* Hear a report on the Academic Performance Index figures and Adequate Yearly Progress statistics for local schools, which were released by the California Department of Education in mid-October;

* Review the school district’s initial proposals for 2013-14 to the two bargaining units that represent district employees, the Davis Teachers Association and the California School Employees Association; and

* Consider a resolution marking California Retired Teachers Week, Nov. 4-10.

Thursday’s meeting has been moved to Harper Junior High because the board’s usual space in the Community Chambers at Davis City Hall is not available. Since Harper is not wired for live broadcasting, there will be no live coverage of the meeting on Davis cable television or as video streamed on the Internet. However, the meeting will be recorded for subsequent rebroadcast.
