There was no action taken on on the proposed cuts at Tuesday’s meeting. The Board is expected to vote on the proposed cuts on April 21st.
Another hot button issue was in relation to a possible bond to remodel Turlock High School’s stadium and build one for Pitman High School. The bond would be issued for $14 million. A community survey was conducted to see if there’s enough support for the bond. TUSD Superintendent Sonny Da Marto reported that the support did not exceed the needed 55 percent to pass. Because passing the bond for stadium purposes will be a tough to pass at anytime, Da Marto suggested that the Board wait for better economic times as they might only get one shot at passing the bond.
