Budget Study Session (November 19)

The Governing Board and staff continued to discuss various options and areas to be adjusted to move our educational program forward and remain fiscally solvent with a positive certified budget with a minimum of 3% reserve. The Board provided direction to include the potential reductions given by staff to include in the first interim (December 2019). In doing so the District would meet a minimum 3% reserve with adjustments made in 2020-21 and 2021-22. As we move forward, staff and the Board will discuss additional options to work toward a balanced certified budget and uphold high educational standards for our students.

Technology Budget Recommendations

Mr. Matt Hill, Director of Educational Technology, and Mr. Mujtaba Rauf, Director of Informational Technology, presented the District's basic needs in regard to technology for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 school year. The presentation informed the Governing Board of Trustees to help them make decisions in terms of options for technology in the next few years. One item discussed was when comparing the current use of iPads with other similar devices, Mr. Hill's recommendation was to stay with iPads and not switch to another device. No decisions were made at this time and budget allocation for future years will be brought back.
