Budget Planning – 4.02

The district continues to move forward with planning to take the actions necessary to balance the budget by 2020. The board began discussions to establish a process to reduce $5 million in expenditures for next budget year. The board will continue discussions over the coming months with final action for reductions to take place prior to March 23, 2018. One potential area for savings is through renegotiating the district’s regular education transportation contract. The board explored what impact savings scenarios would have on start and dismissal times for schools, and the board plans to gather staff and parent feedback in January regarding potential start and dismissal time changes.

Public Hearing

Agenda Item 6.0

Tax Levy Public Hearing – 6.01

The board held a public hearing to receive community feedback regarding the 2017 proposed tax levy. The state’s Truth in Taxation Law requires that if the estimated levy exceeds 105% of the prior year’s extension, the district must give public notice of and hold a public hearing on its intent to adopt an aggregate levy. While District 59’s proposed levy does not meet this 5% level, the administration believes that meeting the spirit of the law is in the District’s and community’s best interest. The board will vote on the final proposed 2017 tax levy at the December 11, 2017, board of education meeting.

This grant will be used to help fund a Family Night Event at the ELC. During this event, families will be engaged in various activities and also participate in a Special Olympic Respect Campaign.
