Posted on 06/23/2023

The Santee School District Board of Education met at 6 p.m. June 20, 2023. Meeting highlights included:

Reports and Presentations

  • The California School Dashboard provides parents and educators with information on school and district progress on local indicators beyond test scores alone, providing a more complete picture of how schools and districts are meeting the needs of all students. Using the approved self-reflection tools for each local indicator in the Dashboard, the District achieved a rating of “Standard Met” for each area.

Public Hearing

  • Proposition 30, The Schools and Local Public Safety Protection Act of 2012, approved by the voters on November 6, 2012, temporarily increases the state’s sales tax rate for all taxpayers and the personal income tax rates for upper-income taxpayers. The revenues generated from Proposition 30 are deposited into a state account called the Education Protection Account (EPA). School districts, county offices of education, and charter schools (LEAs) will receive funds from the EPA based on their proportionate share of the statewide LCFF amount. The Santee School District estimates that it will receive $18,718,863 in EPA funds for the 2023-24 fiscal year. Reference the Board Packet to review how the District has determined to expend the EPA funds.
