The dollar impact of Prop 123 on individual employee salaries will not be known until the monies are distributed by the state and the revised budget voted on by the TUSD Governing Board.
The State may not distribute the funds to school districts until as late as June 30, 2016. We should have specific information to provide to employees regarding the impact of Prop 123 during the month of July.
Because we think it is important for employees to have a break during the summer to take some time for themselves, we have decided that again this year, all school sites and District offices will be closed from July 4th – July 8th. There may be exceptions due to projects such as the Synergy implementation and other programs that provide services to families and students. Please check with your immediate supervisor for specifics. For more information, see this update >>
