SAN LEANDRO -- How should school leaders prioritize spending on programs and services? Come to a community budget forum Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at John Muir Middle School to lend your voice to the conversation.

The San Leandro Unified School District board of education invites parents, teachers, staff, business and community members to come to hear about the anticipated local effect of the governor's proposed budget and the federal budget cuts that went into effect March 1, which will affect education, other domestic services and defense.
