Why is the District considering budget reductions?
Annually, the District and Governing Board review and approve budget allocations that are necessary to balance the budget. This year’s budget was approved with a surplus of only $4,609. New initiatives will require the District to find more efficiencies in the budget. Specifically, initiatives in Kyrene’s strategic plan (i.e. social emotional learning, elementary design, and other identified areas) will increase expenditures above current year levels. As such, the District is considering cost savings that can be realized through budget reductions.
