02-26-2013 Special School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #36


Title
Recommended Reductions and Revenue Enhancements for the 2013-14 Operating Budget

Discussion

Due to changing priorities and the continuing lack of sufficient funding, it has become necessary to reduce the 2013-14 Operating Budget by the estimated amount of $30.7 million. 

Attached  is a revised prioritized list of recommended budget reductions and revenue enhancements for information purposes.  The recommended list of items may change based on input from the School Board and/or community input received at one of the four forums held on the following dates at the respective locations:

  • February 18, 2013 - Astronaut High School Auditorium
  • February 19, 2013 - Bayside High School Auditorium
  • February 21, 2013 - Hoover Middle School Media Center
  • February 25, 2013 - Viera High School Auditorium

Following the Board meeting on February 26, 2013 and the four community forums, a School Board Workshop is planned for March 5, 2013 to further analyze the list. 



Recommendation
A final recommendation will be made prior to the March 12, 2013 School Board meeting.
