VALLEJO TEACHERS URGE DISTRICT TO ADOPT NEW BUDGET APPROACH; SAY FURLOUGH DAY IMMINENT

 VALLEJO, Calif., May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The following was released today from the California Teachers Association:
 The Vallejo Education Association (VEA) held a news conference Tuesday night, where it outlined a new budget approach for the district. VEA President Janny Latno-Yamate made this statement just prior to the district's school board meeting:
 "Tonight the Vallejo Education Association would like to present a concept which ensures that students will come first -- Student-Based Budgeting. This approach is based on the District, first 'costing out' the annual expenses attributed to providing a quality education program for 28 students. The teacher, food/food service, textbooks, supplies and other materials would be included. Second, the District would 'cost out' the annual expenses attributed to providing a quality education program to a school of 560 students (20 classes with 28 students each). Included are a principal, counselor, nurse, secretary, custodian, equipment, utility costs, etc. Lastly, the District would take the remaining funds and 'cost out' the central office. VEA believes that the greatest strides toward quality education can only be made when a true student-based funding system replaces the current 'central office first' style of budgeting."
 Latno-Yamate also announced association plans for members to take a district-wide furlough day, May 18. Teachers will use the day, proposed by both the district and the association in recently failed bargaining, to work with parents and the community to collect signatures for the recall of board member Francesca Demgen. Next year, the district wants teachers to take two furlough days.
 Vallejo teachers launched a successful two-day strike March 16 and 17, 1993, to protest the district's imposed salary and benefit cuts.
