May Revision Surprise! No details on Prop 98 or K-14 Funding

Although we were tipped-off that this May Revision Budget would have less detail than usual, we did not expect virtually no detail on Proposition 98 or K-14 funding. There are probably several reasons for this, including that: the Summary was released early because Governor Newsom plans to be at the Vatican next week to discuss climate change; negotiations are ongoing regarding the January proposal to adjust and reduce the Prop 98 Guarantee by over $8 billion in the prior budget year (2022-23); many difficult compromises with the Legislature remain on the budget as a whole, and the extent to which Prop 98 will be part of the solution to balancing the budget.

IB showcase highlights PBMS students’ community service projects

As an International Baccalaureate school, Pacific Beach Middle requires students to complete community service hours each year.

Sixth-grade students document 10 hours, seventh-grade grade will need 15 hours, and eighth-grade students are required to complete a minimum of 20 hours that become their community service project. Eighth-grade students can complete an individual project or work in groups of two or three to meet their community service project requirements.
