05-10-2011 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #41


Title
Recommended Reductions for the 2011-12 Operating Budget

Discussion

Due to the continuing lack of sufficient funding for 2011-12, it has become necessary to reduce the Operating Budget for next year. This will now be the 5th year in a row for the District to be making budget cuts. Attached is a listing of recommended budget reductions as they were presented to the Board at the April 19 Budget Workshop with one exception.  At the Board's request percentages have been added for each line-item that is being recommended to be reduced.  This will allow individual proposed program reductions to be put into context related to the total respective project costs.

A final recommendation of the Superintendent will be provided to the Board prior to/at the May 24th Board meeting.



Recommendation
Authorize the Superintendent to make the recommended budget reductions for the 2011-12 Operating Budget pursuant to the list provided.
