  The loss of students are spread throughout the K-12 system. There is no reduction in staff or
  services. If students were all educated by the same teacher, rode the same bus, ate in the same
  cafeteria then this MAY be viewed as an area of savings but it doesn’t work that way. There is no area
  of savings, just a cost with less revenue.

               Thanks!



      Thank you!




Thank you for supporting the .25 mill in 2010. It
provided our district with the needed $1.6 million to
restore the .25 mill that was eliminated in 2008 / 2009.




On June 30, 2013 Flagler Schools will lose $1.6 million when the .25 mill expires.

Since 2007...
•   Cut 45 minute of instructional time from middle and high schools
•   Cut clubs, after school activities, travel, field trips and athletics
•   Eliminated 198 positions
•   Imposed two mile rule for transportation at the middle and high schools
•   Reduced employee work days
•   Reduced number of stipends
Why now?
Why a Special Referendum in June?


July 1st is the start of our budget year.


WITHOUT KNOWING
 the dollar amount we have to work with,

                             &BUDGET?

hire staff effectively
                                            We can’t.

The cost to the taxpayers would equate to an additional cost of $23.99 a
year based on a home valued at $123,000 with a homestead exemption.

Are academics important?
Is security important?
Are our children important?
