The budget is built with a flat mill levy, which means no increase in property taxes for the third year in a row. The budget also reflects salary freezes for all employee groups for the 2011-2012 school year and using $6.8 million in cash balances.
The budget also includes $27.8 million in cuts that were announced earlier this spring. The cuts include eliminating 235.9 FTE positions including teachers, instructional and operational support and administration, closing Blackbear Bosin Academy, eliminating elementary strings, changing start times at all early start schools to save transportation costs, and eliminate outside facility leases at Workforce Learning Center and Midtown Community Resource Center. These cuts are in addition to millions of dollars in cuts that the district made in 2009 and 2010.
