  1. Update on California Budget Proposal: Possible Effects on Ramona Unified School District March 1, 2011

  2. Governor Brown’s Budget Proposal • Ask voters to extend current temporary taxes which are due to expire at the end of June 2011 • Two possible outcomes • With passage of ballot to extend temporary taxes, school districts would be funded at slightly lower levels (flat funding) • With defeat of ballot to extend temporary taxes, K-12 education could face additional significant cuts to revenues

  3. If Ballot Measure Fails. . . • Based on current Prop. 98 funding, K-12 education would lose $349 per ADA of funding • This is K-12 education’s share of the dollars which would be raised by the extension of the temporary taxes • Any other dollar amount would require a change in current law • It is also assumed that the shift of dollars from Prop. 63 to pay for county mental health services would not materialize

  4. San Diego County Office of Education • SDCOE directive to all school districts in the county: • Assume that the ballot measure will fail and plan for a minimum $349 per ADA reduction • This scenario would reduce revenues for 2011-2012 by $2.1 million • Assume that the shift of Prop. 63 dollars will not occur

  5. Ramona Unified With the current 1st Interim projection for 2011-2012 Combined with the possibility of higher than projected health insurance rates RUSD is faced with dealing with the minimum of a $2.1 million cut

  6. The Layoff Process • To be able to have certificated layoffs for 2011-2012, preliminary notices must be ratified and handed out to employees by March 15th • Before the June election • Before any vote by the legislators is taken • Before any school districts’ budgets are adopted • Probationary 1 teachers are receiving preliminary notices due to current Education Code allowing laid off tenured teachers the right to substitute teach at their per diem rate of pay

  7. Financial Realities • The combination of retirements and reductions to Probationary 1 teachers will yield an anticipated $700,000 • Little dollars are left to flex or take • Difficult to get any significant savings from other departments • All one-time Federal dollars will be gone • RUSD’s own reserve is projected to be depleted except for the 3% reserve • Class sizes are high • K-3 class size penalties, combined with current law of per diem pay to laid-off tenured teachers, severely limits the financial gain to increase K-3 class size

  8. Financial Realities If this scenario becomes the reality RUSD will need to look at employee concessions for financial relief Over 85% of expenses are in salaries and benefits 2012-2013 becomes a financial catastrophe

  9. Multi-Year Projection if Temporary Taxes are not Extended
