Officials of the Newhall School District breathed a little easier today with the passage of Proposition 30, the Governor’s tax initiative that was designed to head off deep cuts to education.

“We are grateful that the voting public kept us from deeper cuts by passing Prop 30,” said Christy Smith, president of Newhall’s school board. “However, we’ve lost over 20% of our revenue in the last five years and Prop 30 taxes will not restore those losses, the programs we’ve eliminated or the jobs that have been lost – Prop 30 taxes just keep us from being cut deeper.”

“We are not out of the woods yet – just getting through them a little more easily,” said Marc Winger, superintendent.

“Like everyone else, we have rising costs and shrinking reserves and we will have to balance our budgets in the next few years as the economy as a whole slowly improves. That is still a challenge we face.”
