BUDGET OVERVIEW FOR FY 15
Operating Budget Proposal
from the Administration
to the School Committee
Grades K – 5
2062 -388 (to gr. 6) + 294 (new K) + 40 (grade K to 1 growth) = 2008
Down 54, plus net other in/out migration
976 - 342 (to HS) + 388 (from grade 5) – 20 (to p.s.) = 1002
Up 26, plus net other in/out migration
1131 + 342 (from grade 8) – 255 (graduates) – 25 (to p.s.) = 1193
Up 62, plus other net in/out migration
Projectionsassume only private school out-migration and only K-1 new growth; so they are conservative based upon past experience of at least some other net increases.
School Committee meets in a planning session and then develops and adopts Guiding Principles, Assumptions, and budget calendar
Requests from departments go to building principals
Requests from principals, technology manager, buildings and grounds supervisor, and student services director come to central office
Superintendent and assistant superintendent meet with building principals and directors to discuss needs and review requests
Business director meets with technology, students services, and buildings and grounds supervisor to review requests
Central office administrators establish district priorities and develop administration-proposed budgets
Proposed operating budget is presented to School Committee, initially through budget message and PowerPoint
The next several slides list administration-recommended proposals, by category (below); those costs have been included under the related Functions in the preliminary budget proposal figures.
The blue shaded slide includes two proposals that are not recommended to be funded at this time.
Enrollment related requests - These requests reflect both the anticipated new secondary students for September 2015 and the underfunding of prior year requests (as enrollments have grown over time).
Additional HS activities advisor stipends (2) –to reflect growing HS population and existing clubs now supported by volunteer advisors
Positions or services that are necessary to meet unique student needs and changes in enrollment demographics – Some roles existed formerly or were previously contracted out, but continue to be important to support student learning or other physical or social-emotional health needs.
0.5 HS psychologist – to meet growing IEP caseload and number of required evaluations; to provide greater equity among buildings
Care of grounds and facilities – These recommendations address both increased and unmet needs, increased square footage and complexity of the new middle school, restoration of a HS custodial position and a district-wide maintenance worker, and a growing backlog of maintenance issues.
1.0 maintenance worker – to address growing backlog of issues in all buildings and prevent further erosion of upkeep capability
Requests from principals that were NOT INCLUDED in this budget proposal and are NOT RECOMMENDED at this time–
These requests do not rise to the same level of priority for the FY 15 recommended budget as other requests, but may become a need at a later time.
