PRESS RELEASE

Dixon Unified to Hold Town Hall Meetings to Inform Parents and
the Community on District Budget Issues


The Dixon Unified School District has scheduled three Town Hall Meetings to inform parents and the community on issues related to the District’s budget. The meetings will be held as indicated below:

  • Tuesday, October 16th, 6:30 P.M. at Tremont Elementary Multi-Purpose Room
  • Wednesday, October 24, 6:30 P.M. at Dixon High Theater
  • Tuesday, October 30, 6:30 P.M. at Anderson Elementary Multi-Purpose Room

Parents and community members are welcome to attend any of the meetings as they are not tied specifically to any individual school site. Superintendent Brian Dolan and Chief Business Official Cecile Nunley will provide an informational presentation and address any questions or concerns that the public brings forward.

“The Governing Board and I feel that it is important to do all that we can to make sure the community is aware of our overall financial picture and what the District must do to ensure fiscal stability in these challenging times,” Dolan stated. “We invite everyone to come in to hear firsthand what we have done to manage our finances and what we must do in light of flat or declining revenues and increasing expenses.”

Dixon Unified recently adopted a resolution committing to $950,000 in cuts for 2013-14 if Proposition 30 passes in the November election and $4,000,000 in cuts if the proposition fails. Additional cuts of over $4,000,000 would also be necessary for 2014-15. With a budget of just over $26,000,000, cuts of this size pose a devastating threat to District programs and staffing.

Questions regarding this information may be directed to Brian Dolan at 707.693.6318 or bdolan@dixonusd.org.
