MPUSD officials will consider "fiscally accountability" -- that is, whether the district is to become much more independent from the Monterey County Office of Education when it comes to financial issues.
As many of you know, MCOE provides a significant amount of oversight over schools finances, and in some cases, like in the case of King City, can have significant influence over how districts spend their money. How "fiscal accountability" could change that, I'm not sure, but I'm eager to find out next week. MCOE officials will also talk about it at their board meeting on Wednesday, a day after MPUSD. Last week, Alisal officials considered it, and I understand there's at least two more districts in Monterey are already on that path.
What does it mean for the districts exactly, and for MCOE? Stay tuned. Or go to the meetings:
Tuesday, 7 p.m., at Instructional Materials Center, Del Rey Oaks
Wednesday, after 9:30 a.m., at MCOE, 901 Blanco Circle, Salinas
