School district budget cuts, as proposed by Bear Valley Unified’s Budget Advisory Committee, will be approved in this evening’s special meeting of the district’s Board of Trustees. As outlined last week, budget cut recommendations offered by the BAC, which is chaired by new Superintendent Dr. Nancy Wright, included the increasing of class sizes for all grades in the 2010/2011 school year, as well as management furlough days, and the potential reduction of one counselor at Big Bear High School. This evening’s BVUSD meeting will be held at 5:30pm at the school district offices, located at 42271 Moonridge Road in Big Bear Lake. The Board of Trustees will meet there again on Wednesday, when they hold their regular Board Workshop meeting; open session on the 18th is scheduled to begin at 6:30pm.
In other school-related news, today is a late start day for Big Bear High School students.
