  • 93.5% ($14,863,973) of the expenditure increase is due to salary and benefits

Fy2011 budget overview1
FY2011 Budget Overview

  • Proposed FY2011 budget includes a $16.8 million budget gap

  • Level funding of City and State aid assumed

  • No across-the-board salary increases scheduled for FY2011

  • Negotiated wage freeze for Local 1033 employees

Funding formula
Funding Formula

  • Three Key Funding Components

    • Core Instructional Amount - $8,295 per student

    • Student Success Factor – 40% of Core Instructional Amount $3,318 (available for students who receive free or reduced lunch)

    • State Share Ratio – Equalized Weighted Assessed Valuation (EWAV) is the calculation used to determine the funding that a city or town receives

  • How the Plan endorsed by RIDE might impact Providence

    • Projected total increase in base funding over four years = $28,667,235

    • An additional $5,548,728 in state aid in FY2011

    • Additional funding possible for Career & Tech programs and Extraordinary costs for students with disabilities would result in an additional $2.5 million

  • Unknown issues concerning the funding formula

    • What is the base amount of funding available – FY2010 Original State Aid or FY2011 Proposed Aid?

    • Will the Maintenance of Effort Law for the City be changed?

Continued efforts to reduce expenditures
Continued Efforts to Reduce Expenditures

  • Re-negotiate transportation contract extension

  • Utility savings through arrangement with National Grid and City

  • Reduction in warehouse rental costs

  • Refinancing of current debt issue with Johnson Controls

  • Continued review of every line item in budget based upon more information received from FY2010 experience

Actions to fill gap
Actions to Fill Gap

  • If state and local aid is not provided in an amount to fill the $16.8 million budget gap, some of the following actions will be necessary:

    • Layoffs

    • Salary reductions

    • Furlough days

    • Co-share increases

    • Transportation changes

    • Deferral of vital capital purchases

    • Suspension of state mandates

    • Suspension of all programs and extra-curricular activities outside the BEP

  • The local budget is approximately 79% salary and benefits. It would be unrealistic to expect that a $16.8 million budget gap can be addressed without reductions in this area.

  • Total salary expenditures in FY2011 is $175 million
