School Budget 2013-2014
These are turbulent times in our school district. Facing a $300 million structural deficit and still uncertain whether it will get the increased revenue and labor concessions it is seeking, the School District is asking schools to prepare to operate next year with a principal and a bare-bones allotment of teachers and just about nothing else.
That means the contractual minimum class size in every classroom would be as follows: 30 Students in Grades K-3, 33 Students in Grades 4-12. It means no dedicated money for guidance counselors, interscholastic sports, extracurricular activities, librarians, art, music, etc. No money for secretaries.
The district will continue to fund special education and services for Non-English Speakers. I can’t imagine how a school would operate under such conditions. If this is the reality, then your role in school operations will be vital. I hope I am able to report better news to you in the final newsletter (June) of the 2012-13 School Year.
