I was so surprised at how many attended the meeting. I counted about 180. Luz gave a very easy to understand presentation and people asked a lot of questions and got answers. I learned a lot. This was a good format and not at all like past budget workshops where I left more confused. It felt like people were heard and treated with respect. People had very thoughtful questions. They will be posting all the questions asked and the answers on the web site. They ran out of hand outs but all available on the web. It will be interesting to hear what comes out of Sacramento on Friday and how this will effect PUSD. It doesn't sound good.
It is all so overwhelming. There is so much to understand. Another forum is planned for the 19th.
