Report from Daytime ASB Council
The minutes from the February 3, 2015, Daytime ASB Council were distributed. Mrs.
McKenna explained that the minutes from each council meeting are given to the other
council, so that they each know what is being discussed at each other’s meetings.
Mrs. McKenna discussed the Governor’s Budget Proposal. She explained that the
January Preliminary Proposal, AB86, provides recommendations to the adult schools
and junior colleges. In May, the Final Proposed Budget will be released. As changes
are made, the Council will continue to be kept informed by staff. Mrs. McKenna assured
the Council that the Whittier Adult School is financially sound for the 2015/2016 school
year due to the stable financial condition of the District budget. Mrs. McKenna

will decide how to best disperse the state funding.

a decision to build can be made.
The Evening Council also voted and approved the purchase of mobile batteries for the
staff for the “Day of the Teacher” celebration. The batteries are on sale at Best Buy for
