Summary statements l.jpg
Summary Statements

  • Approximately $584,000 in cuts are still needed to meet the cap

  • A consolidation of personnel & operating costs at the elementary school level (close a school & reconfigure the others) has been recommended, but the committee is working to cut other costs instead

Summary statements21 l.jpg
Summary Statements

  • Current cuts do not address the reduction in the School Capital Reserve Fund.

  • This reduction along with continued maintenance budget deferrals is not sound asset management

  • To restore the School Reserve Fund an additional $305,000 must be cut from the school operating budget.

Future implications l.jpg
Future Implications

The current expenditure cap does not:

  • Address the changing demographics & needs of our students

  • Reward the development of alternative funding sources

  • Adjust for unfunded federal mandates or state cost pass throughs

  • Maintain the current systems infrastructure to support student excellence

Future implications23 l.jpg
Future Implications

We must work together to:

  • Address the need for a state aid formula & increased state aid for our schools

  • Reduce local costs through statewide pension reform, out of district transportation agreements and health and dental programs

  • Regionalize/consolidate purchasing and services as appropriate
