TUSD slates budget meetings with public

Citizen Staff Writer

Tucson Unified School District will hold two Community Budget Forums this week and one next to gather public comment on the projected 2010 budget.

With the state of Arizona facing a $3 billion budget deficit, TUSD is expecting cuts in state funding that range from $30 million to $63 million, district officials say.

This week’s forums will be Wednesday at Tucson High Magnet School, 400 N. Second Ave. and Thursday at Catalina Magnet High, 3645 E. Pima St.

The last one will be March 19 at Cholla High Magnet, 2001 W. Starr Pass Blvd.

All the meetings will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

TUSD spokeswoman Chyrl Hill Lander said district finance members will be on hand so people will be able to have their questions answered by those who have data to give accurate responses.

Also, Spanish translators will be available at the forums. To request a translator in another language, call 225-6225.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
