BOE Recommended Areas of Reduction Presentation 011019
Please reference the below slides/files for this presentation
Items for Board Discussion - Reductions Presentation
Superintendent Paul Otten presents recommended reductions to the Board of Education. The recommendations come as a result of the failed November levy initiative, which creates a loss of revenue for fiscal year 2019, and are intended to alleviate budget deficits projected in the district's Five-Year Forecast. Areas of proposed reduction and modification include building and department budgets, school day schedules, personnel, salary and benefits, hiring practices, athletics and student activities, and instructional programs.   
Included in the presentation are proposals to increase transportation department efficiency by changing school day schedules as follows:

Student Day

  • Middle Schools (7:30 am - 2:15 pm)
  • BHS, Ferguson Hall, Parkwood, Shaw (8:15 am - 3:00 pm)
