5. Analysis of Operating Budget Ending Fund Balance 2011-2012


Judy Preston, Associate Superintendent of Financial Services, gave an  analysis update, to the Board and viewing audience, on the Operating Budget Ending Fund Balance for 2011-12.

Mr. Ziegler mentioned that after looking over some calculations done by Candace Lankford, School Board Member of Volusia County, we lost funds because of district cost differential.  He stated that over the past ten years, the amount lost was approximately 40 million dollars.  He explained for the listening audience, that every dollar that Brevard sent to the state, we only received .96 cents back of our tax money contributed to the state. This money would have benefited Brevard considerably over the years. 

Mr. Ziegler explained a program Orange County School District has implemented called Leadership Orange.  He stated it was like LEAD Brevard but it is just for the school district.  Mr. Ziegler mentioned the program takes thirty people a year and run them through an eight session course in an eight month period to educate them on every aspect of the district.  He would like it if we would evaluate the program to see if it is practical for us to do. It would meet the concerns that the Board has on getting the word out on what it really takes to run a school district.
