A message from the Superintendent

Dear Parents and Patrons:

Summer School closed at the end of June and officially ended the 2017-18 school year. Summer School provides elementary students an opportunity to enhance skills learned during the regular year and secondary students have a similar opportunity to complete credit courses or an opportunity to complete regular courses allowing for greater schedule flexibility during the regular school year. In any case, our kids benefit from the experience which is a positive for their academic success.

At their recent June 13, 2018 Board of Education meeting, the FY 19 (2018-2019 Academic Year) budget was reviewed and approved. The budget is found at https://tinyurl.com/ycy398d5. It contains significant support information regarding budget development, revenue, and expenditures by code and a variety of comparative data. Perhaps the most informative information for a general understanding is contained on pages one through ten. The narrative and charts indicate the assumptions used for both revenue and expenditures.

Of particular note is that this budget also contains information on both revenue and expenditures if Proposition K passes on August 7, 2018. Passage of Proposition K will provide resources to continue the quality education offered in Fulton 58. A specific information sheet outlining the use of Proposition K resources and the effect on FPS if Proposition K fails is found at https://tinyurl.com/yajx5eap.

Please take a few minutes to review the FY 19 Budget and Proposition K fact sheet. I will always find time to answer your budget questions, Proposition K questions or general FPS questions. Please feel free to contact me.

Thank you for sending us great students to work with!

Jacque A. Cowherd, Ed.D.
