The 2017-18 books are officially closed with all operating funds carrying positive fund balances and meeting reserve requirements, if applicable. 3% reserve maintained. Declining enrollment impacts budget projections.
Structural deficits in 2017-18, 2018-19, and 2019-20. Once budget reductions are made, she anticipates a positive ending balance.
Comments from Dr. Scott: Is it too early to determine how much we will lose due to declining enrollment? Eastland- We’ll have that ready to present to the Board.
Comments from Mrs. Shellhart: Slide 6, Item 7000: “Other Outgo”- last line item. What is it? Usually it is an indirect cost for Special Education. SELPA (J. Yay). (Presentation and full report attached.)

Mr. Tcheng: Attended GHS information night. Thanked Member Shellhart for filling in for him.

So much going on at that school. Jefferson was the same. Many contentious communities. Then there’s us. We are in a wonderful space surrounded by chaos. All our hard work is paying off for our students and staff.
