BEVERLY HILLS LOCKSMITH: After a unanimous voting on Tuesday among the school board, it was ruled out that all the special permit shall be ended for students that lived out of the city. Though current Beverly Hills High School student got a sigh of relief as they where allowed to continue applying for permit each year. Although, seventh grader where allowed to graduate from the middle school, but elementary school and eight graders would not be entitled to enroll for 2010-2011 unless they relocate to Beverly Hills.
According to former Beverly Hills Mayor Charles Aronberg told the board that the decision to not renew the permits would lead to a bad reputation on Beverly Hills as its being always in the limelight. Decision of the meeting was even charged as an accusation of elitism and entitlement. One of the Board Members Lisa Korbatov even had a compelling reason to justify the decision being made as they are even responsible for residents of Beverly Hills who are working two jobs, struggling to pay the rent and put food on the table.
Many of the families where left unsatisfied, but the decision moved to the forefront this year because of a funding shift. Currently the Beverly Hills Unified School District received about $6,200 from the state for each student. But it is now preparing to switch to municipal funding , funded by property tax revenue rather than state money based on student attendance.
In spite of the decision being made to discontinue the permit student, the district will continue other non-residential permit for legacies, to promote diversity and for city and district employees
