SAN FRANCISCO - The Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education on Tuesday approved a spending plan for fiscal 2008-2009 that includes $350 million of cuts from its current services.

General fund revenue is projected to decrease by $144 million, or 2%, to $6.85 billion from $7 billion in the current fiscal year. That's $350 million less than the district would need to maintain current service levels in the fiscal year that begins July 1. The budget plan passed this week is technically a set of guidelines for the provisional budget the board will adopt June 24.
