What are the primary areas of budget reduction? What will the cost savings fund?
The Governing Board is currently reviewing three primary areas of budget reductions to support the funding of District priorities. Areas of consideration for cost savings include changes in (1) the middle school staffing model, (2) the bell schedule, and (3) the employee discount for Community Education programs. The District will allocate funds from any budget savings to support priorities that put more dollars in the classroom into areas such as social emotional learning, elementary design, and/or other identified areas of focus identified in the District’s strategic plan. The number of priorities funded is dependent upon the cost savings from reductions.
