LA Times headlines screams Inglewood USD May Be Beyond Saving

IUSDI hope Johnny Young, Arnold Butler, Danny Tabor and the rest of the Measure K Oversight Committee can explain why $131 million dollars of Measure K bond money was only allocated to five schools when there are 21 in the district?  Interim administrator LaTanya Kirk-Carter agreed to release all of the oversight committees meeting agendas, meeting minutes and all other related documents pertaining to how the committee made the decisions they recommended the Inglewood USD board approve?  Lets see how long it takes IUSD to post to the website.

Until now, there have been no Measure K Oversight Committee meeting minutes, etc. posted for public review.  Kirk-Carter stated the Measure K bond wasn’t required to have documents made public since it was a Prop 39 bond.  I beg to differ, ALL public money is prone to oversight.  Why are elected allows to abuse their power and leave the residents suffering?

Text from Senate Bill 533- Emergency Loan for Inglewood USD

Excerpt from SB 533

The bill would appropriate up to $29,000,000 from the General Fund to the Superintendent for apportionment as an emergency loan to the Inglewood Unified School District, and would specify procedures for repayment of the loan unless the loan has been refinanced, as specified. The bill would authorize the school district to augment the emergency apportionment or loan with an additional $26,000,000 of bank financing, as provided. The bill would authorize the school district to sell property owned by the school district from September 1, 2012, to June 30, 2015, inclusive, and use the proceeds from the sale to reduce or retire the emergency loan, and would prohibit the school district from being eligible for financial hardship assistance under the Leroy F. Greene School Facilities Act of 1998 from June 1, 2012, to June 30, 2015, inclusive.
