On February 11, the Board of the Culver City Unified School District passed a resolution supporting the Schools and Communities Fair Funding Act, which will be a measure on the November, 2020 ballot. If approved by voters, this act would reassess commercial property and can provide approximately $5.3 billion annually for K-14 schools. As stated in the resolution, the per pupil funding for students in California has declined from the top 10 to the bottom quarter and is, comparatively, at the bottom quarter in the nation. An increase in funding can assist schools and school districts in meeting the academic, social and emotional needs of students and help provide school districts with additional funds to expand artistic and athletic offerings.
