Final Budget Agreement between Governor and Legislative Leaders

We wanted to give you a little detail on the agreement reached last night on the State Budget that will be acted upon very swiftly in the coming days.

The agreement includes the revenue and taxation proposal adopted by the Legislature, which speeds up the suspension of some tax credits and increases general fund revenue by about $5 billion in the budget year compared to the Governor’s May Revision. With overall general fund revenue at about $211 billion in the budget year, there is a corresponding increase to the Proposition 98 Guarantee to $115.3 billion.

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.
