On Monday, April 24, 2017 at 5:00 PM at the Board of Education Study Session, district staff will present information regarding the financial state of the district, which includes a budget shortfall between $1.78 million and $5.51 million for the 2017-2018 school year depending on the actions taken at the upcoming Special Legislative Session. Additionally, the district is still trying to recover from the $1.9 million cash sweep we incurred during the 2017 Legislative Session.
I realize these are difficult times, and often the public receives conflicting information from various sources. That is why I encourage our faculty, staff, parents, and community to attend the Study Session on April 24th. Our staff will present, in detail, an accurate picture of the challenges we face as a district in building a fiscally responsible budget in the best interest of all students. Please note, there is limited seating. However, the meeting can be viewed online here. For more information regarding the upcoming Study Session, please click here.
