Why oh Why is Mountain View Los Altos' Chief Financial Officer - projecting 5% property tax growth? The newer and less experienced MVWSD CFO is predicting 3% for all three years of the state required projections.
>> Hint, the Admin of MVWSD can slide this past their Board! Even though the MVWSD has approved this mistaken lowball revenue estimation for the last 3/4/5 years. The cash RESERVES of MVWSD continue to rise and rise (as in millions of dollars And as a percent of General Fund operations budgets).
>> Underspending in MVWSD on "instruction" relative to the MVLA percentage. Underspend in MVWSD relative to LASD in "Student Support personnel". Poor result in academic GAP for MVWSD relative to MVLA's GAP reduction (MVWSD significant W-H and A-H increased GAP).
earlier 3%, 3%, 2% revenue increase error by MVWSD!
