Mayor Botelho has proposed the following format for discussion purposes with brief presentations (no more than 10 minutes on each, to be followed by limited Q and A) on two topics:

1. What is the district expecting in “new” money for 08-09?
How does the district intend to use that money?

2. How is the district adjusting to the continuing enrollment declines in long range planning?
What are the impacts on future funding?...space utilization?

B. Additional discussions to be considered in three breakout groups, followed by plenary summaries, regarding the following issues:

1. The task force on funding for high school activities has identified $2.2 million as the amount needed annually for funding for activities at JDHS and TMHS. Where do you envision these funds coming from? Assuming contributions from CBJ and the district, how much should come from each?

2. Do you [as a school board member] intend to bring any capital projects forward for the October 2008 ballot? What would these projects be? Under what circumstances, if any, would you [as an assembly member] Support placement of a school bond issue on the ballot?
