During a budget study session on Tuesday Superintendent Wayne Joseph presented board members with a list of 18 items he's recommending the board can restore to this school year and next. Those items total about $10 million.
"Proposition 30 passing didn't take money away nor did it give us new money but it did allow us to go back and scrutinize what items the board may want to restore to the budget," said Julie Gobin, district spokeswoman.
Board members cannot take any action at the budget study sessions, they can ask questions and request more information to be brought back to their next meeting for either discussion or as an action item.
Their next regular meeting is Feb. 7.
The study session on Tuesday also warned board members of what the district will be faced with in the future - Gov. Jerry Brown's temporary tax measure, the possibility of a new charter school opening in the district and the implementation of Common Core State Standards, which has been heard to cost $5 million to execute.
Voters approved Brown's temporary tax measure or Proposition 30 in November.
The proposition is anticipated to raise about $6 billion in annual revenues for most years; about $2.9 billion will go to kindergarden to 12th grade and community colleges in the current school year.
Governor Brown's 2012-13 state General Fund budget already accounted for the anticipated revenues to the proposition.
The temporary tax measure will increase state sales tax by a quarter cent for four years and will increase state personal tax on annual earning more than $250,000 for seven years.
If the proposition failed the district would have had a negative ending balance of $15 million from their budget in 2014-15 school year, officials said.
District staff will now prepare its second interim report, which will include finances through the end of January.
This will be presented to the board March 15.
