The District administrators encourage attendance in person, as the meeting will not be streamed live nor recorded for later viewing, according to Superintendent Matt Hill.

Following the defeat of parcel tax Measure QS in 2018, the District continues to explore the idea of putting another parcel tax measure on the ballot in 2020.

In the meantime, BUSD is asking for direct donations to the Burbank Educational Foundation fund at the link for www.BEFgives.org to try to offset the anticipated $2.5 million in cuts for the 2019-20 school year.

An awareness campaign on the budget cuts the District faces began in April. More information on that campaign and the budget cuts can be found here.

Previous school board meetings are available for viewing via this page on the Burbank Unified website. Documents of corresponding agendas are also available on the page.

The Special Board Meeting will be held in the District Office Boardroom, located at 1900 W. Olive Avenue on the third floor and is scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m. Parking is available in the lot at the corner of Olive Avenue and Parish Street.
