Santa Maria JUHSD Eliminates Adult Education
Posted on 06/29/2009
The Santa Maria Joint Union High School District passed a two year budget on June 17 that contained $8.5 million in cuts and eliminated adult education starting in 2010-11, according to the Santa Maria Times. The board passed the budget unanimously after testimony from a standing room only crowd in which several people spoke in defense of adult education.
Retiring Superintendent Jeff Hearn expressed anger over having to cut adult education but also stated that the district’s core mission is teaching high school students.
