Title
Superintendent's Recommendation: ESF District Support Staff Personnel Reductions Due to 2008-2009 Budget Reduction

Discussion

As the legislative session in Tallahassee draws to a close, Brevard Public Schools officials estimate that, comparing the July 1, 2007 budget to the anticipated July 1, 2008 budget equates to a $35.9 million reduction; $21.3 million in the operating budget and $14.6 million in the capital budget.

Superintendent Dr. Richard DiPatri informed all BPS Employees of the severity of the District's budget through an email sent on May 1, 2008 along with the Budget Reduction Communications Plan(attached). A press release was issued on May 2, 2008 that outlines the extent of the loss in revenue for the 2008-2009 budget (attached).
