Recommended Budget Reductions for 2011-12 School Yr

Given a budget shortfall of $13.6 million for the 2011-12 school year, district administration used the Long Range Plan as a basis for prioritizing resources and making recommendations for reductions. With teaching and learning always at the forefront, administration aimed to make reduction recommendations with the least impact on students.

SASD staff members have shown great dedication to the district and have continued to work together to find solutions to solve the budget deficit. Four employee groups have agreed to contract extensions for the 2011-12 school year which include $6.65 million in concessions. In addition to these concessions and savings, other reductions are necessary in order to present a balanced budget for next year.
