High school district's financial outlook grim

Anthony buyout takes almost half of financial reserves
The contract buyout of Fallbrook Union High School District Superintendent Tom Anthony by the union-supported board majority (O’Connor, Schulte and Steffler) will reduce the district’s $875,949 special reserves budget by nearly $400,000, leaving approximately half for other designations between now and June 30.
At a time when California school districts face falling enrollment, thereby reducing state and federal school funding, depletion of school budgets for any reason that doesn’t benefit students merits concern.
