Hoping to ease classroom overcrowding, city and Capistrano Unified School District officials are considering a tax on new homes to help build two more elementary schools. The county's third-largest school district has grown by 28% in the past five years, from 31,206 students in 1993-94 to 40,115 students in 1997-98, prompting district officials to urge the city to establish a Mello-Roos Community Facilities District.

The Capistrano Unified School District board has approved a resolution calling for the county to return 100% of $74 million the district had in the county's investment pool before it collapsed. Like other public school districts, Capistrano Unified was required by state law to deposit all its funds with the county treasurer. Trustees voted unanimously Monday to approve the resolution.

The sale of special tax refunding bonds will save property owners in Aliso Viejo and part of Mission Viejo an estimated $9.7 million, Capistrano Unified School District trustees said this week. The bonds, sold Aug. 29, will reduce taxes on developed and undeveloped properties and also provide about $3 million in financing for new schools without increasing the overall debt payment, officials said. "The deal is record-breaking," said Terri E. Lunine, deputy superintendent of the school district.

Capistrano Unified School District officials say they are shocked that Gov. Pete Wilson has included $1 million in his budget proposal to fight a lawsuit initiated by the district to seek equal funding for schools. "The value of a student in this district is far less than the value of students in neighboring districts, and indeed in the entire state," Supt. James A. Fleming said.

With more state education cuts expected and a budget deadline looming, Capistrano Unified School District trustees approved a 1992-93 preliminary budget Monday that outlines about $8.2 million in reductions, including the loss of up to 87 positions. In a 4-2 vote, the board also approved using a $12.7-million reduction plan that can be put in place if extra cuts are needed when more information on revenue from the state becomes available.

Fearing additional state budget cuts, Capistrano Unified School District officials are recommending that the Board of Trustees adopt a final budget Monday that includes about $10 million in reductions, including the elimination of 144 teaching and staff positions. Until the state passes its budget, district officials say they will not be able to rescind any of the remaining 88 preliminary layoff notices sent to teachers and guidance counselors in March.

The Capistrano Unified School District Board of Trustees this week unanimously approved more than $450,000 in cuts for programs that were to be funded with the district's state lottery allocation. The cuts, totaling $451,271, were made because the district had originally expected to receive $110 per student from the state based on average daily attendance, but that figure has been reduced to a projected $88 per student, said Carleen Wing-Chandler, the district's director of budget and finance.

The Capistrano Unified School District's Board of Trustees tonight will discuss a list of proposed cuts that may be needed to balance a projected $8.9-million shortfall in next year's budget. In a "worst-case scenario," officials said the budget deficit could grow even bigger if the district receives less money than anticipated from the state in lottery funds, cost of living adjustment and other revenues, said Supt. James A. Fleming.

The Capistrano Unified School District board today will review a list of possible deep cuts in its 1995-96 budget. Potential areas for cuts include busing, sports, other extracurricular activities, and funding for several teacher aides. Trustees also will consider a possible wage freeze or 1% salary reduction for district employees. District officials project that between $4.4 million and $6.4 million will have to be cut from the budget because of the county's collapsed investment pool.

A budget shortfall in the Capistrano Unified School District may not be as bad as expected, officials said this week, but they also cautioned trustees that the district is "not out of the woods yet." The new information on the district's financial situation came Monday as the Board of Trustees adopted a tentative budget for the coming fiscal year. A final budget will be brought to the board in late June. The district expects a shortfall of about $1 million in the estimated $128.

After cutting almost $8 million from the budget last summer, the Capistrano Unified School District could face another $6.5-million shortfall in its $122-million budget in the next fiscal year. "The situation looks very, very bleak, and bleak is probably a mild way to put it," board President Marlene Draper said.

The Capistrano Unified School District's Board of Trustees has voted unanimously to rescind 16 more of the 274 preliminary termination notices they sent to teachers and administrators last month. The notices were sent to all first- and second-year teachers and some third-year teachers. The board, which had already rescinded 43 of the notices on April 6, said the notices were sent out to give members "maximum flexibility" when forming next year's budget, which is expected to fall $8.

More than 140 full-time teaching and staff positions will be eliminated and average class sizes will be increased by one student under a $110-million budget adopted this week by the Capistrano Unified School District Board of Trustees. But until the state adopts its own budget, the district won't know if all the $10 million in cuts adopted under the budget will be needed, or if more will be coming, Supt. James A. Fleming told the board Monday.
