GOAL

Save $1.5 million



Freshman seminar 159 600
Freshman Seminar ($159,600)*

  • 3.5 teachers would be removed

  • Freshmen would need to be placed in other classes, increasing the student-teacher ratio

    **Many who were surveyed stated that the course was only valuable for a week

    *Page 11


Other class cuts
Other Class Cuts*

  • German 1 (H) – 3 classes offered

  • German 2 (H) – 2 classes offered

  • German 3 (H) – 2 classes offered

  • German 4 (H) – 1 class offered

  • Spanish 5 (H) – 2 class offered

  • Spanish for Spanish Speakers 1 – 2 classes offered

  • AP Music Theory – 1 class offered

    • By cutting these classes, teachers could teach more demanded courses, therefore decreasing class sizes by opening up 13 block

      *Page 1


Family and consumer science 345 168
Family and Consumer Science ($345,168)*

  • 1,053 students would make other classes grow

  • 8 teachers positions would be opened, but not refilled

    *Page 1


English language learning 94 000
English Language Learning ($94,000)*

  • 177 students are currently using this program

  • Due to Federal Law, taking out the entire ELL program is not an option, therefore 2 teachers, 1 from North and 1 from South, will be removed

  • Larger student teacher ratio would be created

    • Keeping students up to par would be more difficult

  • Only 1 teacher and 1 paraprofessional would be at each school

    *Page 1


Pheonix program 1 000 000
Pheonix Program ($1,000,000*)

  • Only 70 students are in this program at the high school level

  • The per pupil cost has increased from $9,100 in 2007 to $14,000 in 2009

    *Ninth paragraph down.


Freshman sports 66 398
Freshman Sports ($66,398)*

  • Only JV and Varsity sports would be available

  • Wouldn’t allow young players to improve their skills to make it to the higher levels

  • Encourages players to try harder during tryouts

  • Approximately half of the sports teams don’t have a freshman team

    • Example: Cross Country, Track & Field, Soccer, Cheerleading

*$33,199 would be saved at South. This value was doubled to get both North’s and South’s saved money.



Rent sports uniforms 81 510
Rent Sports Uniforms ($81,510)*

  • Charge $15 to rent a sports uniform for a season (non refundable)

  • discourages economically challenged athletes, however the fee could be waivered for the students who have a reduced lunch fee (30%)

*This revenue was calculated AFTER removing freshman sports

$40,755 would be made at South. This value was doubled to get both North’s and South’s raised revenue.


Advertisements 315 000
Advertisements ($315,000)*

*on the highway side of the building

  • The wall is 150 X 105 square feet

  • Charge $1,000 per square foot

  • The space would have to be rented annually, making the revenue constant annually, if every square foot is sold

  • It could be an eye sore

    *We got the dimensions of the wall from the main office.


Rent stellos to bg 10 960
Rent Stellos to BG ($10,960)*

  • Currently BG gets to use Stellos Stadium for free

  • Charge them $10,960 per year to have the option to use the stadium

    • This is equivalent to one student’s tuition for a year

      *BG Tuition per student page


Increase the parking pass cost about 12 000
Increase the parking pass cost (about $12,000)

  • Currently the full year parking passes cost $100

    • Increase to $120 a year

  • The half a year parking pass cost $50

    • Increase to $70

      • This would create incentive for students to purchase a full year parking pass AND do better in school as well as stay out of trouble so that they can keep the pass


Funding the music program 214 092
Funding the Music Program ($214,092)*

  • Local businesses could sponsor for the music programs

    • Darrell’s Music Hall, the Boston Pops, and local symphonies & orchestra companies

  • Create an Alumni Fund **

    • Lowell Catholic High School has a very successful alumni fund in place

*Page 23-24.

Funding the art program 433 276
Funding the Art Program ($433,276)*

  • Local businesses could sponsor the arts

    • Andres Institute and Currier Art Gallery

  • Some art supplies could be donated from stores

    • Michael’s and A.C. Moore

  • Create an Alumni Fund
