LAUSD Might Get an $8.6 Million Discount on its LADWP Bill
"The District faces a $650 million budget deficit now, and the anticipated state budget cuts are likely to cause even more drastic fiscal impacts," said Councilmember Paul Krekorian in his motion. "In March the LAUSD board issued layoff noticed to 5200 of its 71,000+ employees, including 4700 teachers, administrators, counselors and nurses."
The new electricity rates will add $8.6 million to the school district. "That eats into the
limited amount in discretionary funds that any school district has left after paying its teachers and its staff," Krekorian, a former Burbank school board member, said.
