MV Whisman district finances looking rosier

Original post made on Jul 15, 2011

The Mountain View Whisman School District anticipates having more money next school year than it had in 2010-11, thanks to two large and unexpected infusions of cash that the district received late last school year.

Great news for MVWSD and MVLA, but I have to ask... why is LASD not getting any of the Shoreline funds? Roughly 20% of the K-8 kids residing in Mountain View attend LASD, and are seeing no benefit from this, while their class sizes increase, library hours decrease, and PE is eliminated for lower grades. Why is LASD excluded?

Because LASD will give it all away to the teachers' union and then go crying for yet another parcel tax. The question you should be asking is what the hec are they doing will all that parcel tax money?

Yet MVLA gets some?! MVWSD and MVLA spend very close to the same $ per student. I don't feel as if I know enough about the current contract with the teachers to agree or disagree with you, but it still seems odd that LASD is left out in the cold when it comes to Shoreline funds.

@LASD Dad

Noting odd or ominous. It's very simple and logical. Shoreline is not in the LASD attendance area but in the MV-Whisman and the MVLA attendance areas. Only LASD could claim that money would be by merging with Mountain View-Whisman (highly unlikely move by LASD).

While I'm not in the MV-Whisman atttendance area, I'm very happy to see MV Whisman improving financially and academically. We are all neighbors and Mountain View residents: we all benefit from this.

@another...
OK... did not realize the Shoreline fund was entirely from property tax revenue... that makes sense. I completely agree with all benefitting from this. I've got lots of friends with kids in MVWSD... very happy for them.
