lausd-logoLOS ANGELES (KTLA) — Members of the LAUSD board were meeting Tuesday to consider how to allocate millions of dollars generated by Proposition 30 and Gov. Brown’s school-funding plan.

Board members Bennett Kayser, Richard Vladovic and Steve Zimmer support one proposal to use the funds to hire more teachers to reduce class size, rehire counselors, librarians, and campus maintenance workers.

The second proposal, by board member Tamar Galatzan, would “create a funding method in which additional money follows the student.”

Under this proposal, all L.A. Unified schools would get a base funding increase.

Any additional funds would help English learners, and poor students and would follow the child to whichever school they attend.

The voter-approved Prop. 30 will increase sales-tax to aid public schools beginning in the 2014-2015 school year.
