It's all about money for the Turlock Unified School District Board of Trustees this Tuesday. The board is expected to hear how the California state budget might impact the district, discuss how to spend $5.9 million in state categorical funding, and consider spending a portion of the district's Education Protection Account on classroom teacher salaries.
As the City of Turlock attempts to narrow a $3.5 million budget deficit, one near-inevitability is apparent: Turlock will likely employ fewer police officers and firefighters next year. Three of four Turlock budget alternatives would include cutting seven public safety positions, currently funded by federal grants. Those grants are due to expire this year.
