Grades 6-8

Up 26, plus net other in/out migration

Grades 9-12

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.

The blue shaded slide includes two proposals that are not recommended to be funded at this time.

  • Technology-related professional development – to reflect increasing needs for training, course work, and sub coverage for training activities
slide16

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.

  • special education teacher for a small cohort of post kindergarten-aged children with more intensive needs
