Millions in state budget cuts threaten Irvine’s public schools, which consistently rank among the best in the nation.
The Support Our Schools (SOS) initiative will double our City’s financial support for all Irvine schools with no new taxes.
- Provide funding for teachers, instructional aides, school nurses, school safety officers, classroom supplies
and sports facilities
- Allocate $1.6 million annually to the Irvine Education Partnership Fund to support Irvine academic
performance for K-12 Irvine students served by the Irvine and Tustin Unified School Districts from 2013
- Allocate $1.5 million annually from 2013 to 2016 to support programs designed to reduce class size. These
funds are designed to be matched by corporations and nonprofit organizations
- Under this initiative, school funds are allocated from the City General Fund with no new taxes
