<!--[include_if_component:moviefile:1:incs/story/movie.inc]--> <div id="storytext"><span>The Galt Joint Union Elementary School District will be holding a special budget workshop on March 10 at the Greer Library located at 248 west 4 street to try to come up with ways to cover a $3.4 million budget shortfall now that the state has inked its budget for the year.<BR /><BR />Facing a $1.2 million midyear budget deficit for this year and a $2.2 million gap for 2009-10, the district must make both immediate budget adjustments, and prepare for additional cuts in the immediate future in order to keep doors open and salaries paid on time.<BR /><BR />District Superintendent Karen Schauer, Ed.D, issued a memo to all district employees on Friday outlining some initial ideas where the budget may be cut to help meet the shortfall. Those areas include a reduction in staff and staff time in both the classroom and at the counseling and administrative level, as well as proposals to &ldquo;shift&rdquo; some categorical funding, the closure of Fairsite, and to postpone a Visual and Performing Arts program already planned.<BR /><BR />In total, Schauer said up to 40 certificated employees might receive pink slips after the March 10 meeting, as much due to declining enrollment as due to the state budget.</span><br /><br /> <span>&ldquo;We must consider &ldquo;worst case&rdquo; scenarios so we can afford to open our doors for children in 200910,&rdquo; said Schauer. &ldquo;At this time we are considering reductions with teachers and administrators due to declining enrollment and the state budget shortfall. I project close to 40 certificated positions will be reflected in our resolution for a reduction in force for potential layoffs.&rdquo;<BR /><BR />Others in district administration may face furloughs similar to those being instituted by the state.<BR /><BR />&ldquo;The reduced work days for all school

district administration is an idea to be a part of the solution in addressing the state budget shortfall,&rdquo; said Schauer. &ldquo;We have not determined how this would work with the school year schedule at this time, but I would compare it to the furlough state workers are experiencing.&rdquo;<BR /><BR />Legally required to issue lay off notices by March 15, the district said the March 10 meeting is being held to make tough decisions about how to handle the current fiscal crisis. When it comes to who will receive lay off notices, Schauer said that would be a negotiated process that she hopes everyone will participate in.<BR /><BR />&ldquo;My hope is that we all, all employee groups, can all work together through this historic budget shortfall,&rdquo; said Schauer. &ldquo;It would take mutually agreed upon contract changes for certificated and classified staff to change contract areas associated with days, hours and salary areas.&rdquo;<BR /><BR />In the end, however, time spent with the district will play a key role in who eventually receives a final layoff notice.<BR /><BR />&ldquo;Staff reduction of $220,198 relates to declining enrollment,&rdquo; said Schauer. &ldquo;Once the board takes action on the Reduction in Force Resolution, least &ldquo;senior&rdquo; teachers would receive notifications. Some less senior teachers may have special credentials that would keep them from receiving a notice&rdquo;.<BR /><BR />Facing over $3 million in revenue loss, teacher salaries are not the only targets for district budget adjustments.<BR /><BR />A $300,000 board approved plan for a visual and performing arts (VAPA) curriculum and/or support for physical education professional development or equipment may not see the light of day, for now. Included in a variety of &ldquo;categorical&rdquo; funds, VAPA money is now on a short one-time list of categorical funds that can be &ldquo;shifted&rdquo; to other programs in need and, as such, has been targeted to help meet the midyear budget gap this year.<BR /><BR />&ldquo;The VAPA flexibility results from not spending dollars we had planned to adopt a VAPA curriculum,&rdquo; said Schauer. &ldquo;We have concrete ideas to spend this money with a board approved plan developed by teachers and administrators. However, we delayed moving forward with this plan due to emerging information concerning the historic state budget shortfall.&rdquo;<BR /><BR />Much to the dismay of many students and parents, the band program at the elementary school level is also on the list of proposed cuts for the 2009-10 school year.<BR /><BR />Also included in ideas to cover the midyear gap are shifting of deferred and routine maintenance dollars, school site allocation reductions, and the elimination of the district&rsquo;s only middle school counselor position.<BR /><BR />Included in the 2009-10 ideas to address the shortfall are the 40 certificated seats, the closure of Fairsite Elementary, which is expected to save the district $448,000, the reduction in workdays for administrators, and a variety of categorical funding shifts including class-size reduction and instructional support positions such as assistant principals and reading and English learner specialists.<BR /><BR />Still searching for alternatives to program and teacher cuts, Schauer said the March 10 meeting is open to the public who are encouraged to take part in this &ldquo;painful&rdquo; process of covering the historic state budget shortfalls and declining enrollment.<BR /><BR />&ldquo;The District Advisory Committee (parents, teachers, administrators), GJUESD employees and school principals have all provided ideas,&rdquo; said Schauer. &ldquo;We want to move forward

with continued focus on strengthening student achievement across our school district.&rdquo;</span><br /><br clear="all" /> <div></div><br clear="all" /> </div> <!-- Begin Paging --> <table width="100%" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="3"> <tr> <td width="45%"><a href="/articles/2009/03/04/news/doc49a569851f247616057333.txt"><img src="http://images.townnews.com/galtheraldonline.com/art/tool_icons/previ ous-article.gif" border="0" alt="Previous"></a></td> <td width="10%" align="center">&nbsp;</td> <td width="45%" align="right"><a href="/articles/2009/03/04/news/doc49aeb7cdae074709513576.txt"><img src="http://images.townnews.com/galtheraldonline.com/art/tool_icons/nextarticle.gif" border="0" alt="Next"></a> </td> </tr> <!--<tr> <td width="45%" valign="top" class="small">[paging::stack-headline:previous]</td> <td align="center">&nbsp;</td> <td width="45%" align="right" valign="top" class="small">[paging::stack-headline:next] </td> </tr>--> <tr> <td colspan="3"><ul><li><a href="/articles/2009/03/04/news/doc49a56a3d82744084335790.txt"><span class="medium"><b>‘Hoodie’ armed robber strikes again</b></span></a></li><li><a href="/articles/2009/03/04/news/doc49a56a5dabd75002149321.txt"><img alt="Pic" border="0" src="http://images.townnews.com/galtheraldonline.com/art/photo_icon.gif"> &nbsp;<span class="medium"><b>McCaffrey Bulldog Idols shine on stage</b></span></a></li><li><a href="/articles/2009/03/04/news/doc49a56ac18f3f3357149393.txt"><img alt="Pic" border="0" src="http://images.townnews.com/galtheraldonline.com/art/photo_icon.gif"> &nbsp;<span class="medium"><b>Giving kids a reason to smile</b></span></a></li><li><a href="/articles/2009/03/04/news/doc49a56b84d7ba0863199227.txt"><img alt="Pic" border="0" src="http://images.townnews.com/galtheraldonline.com/art/photo_icon.gif"> &nbsp;<span class="medium"><b>Wal-Mart Foundation gives $75,000 to California Future Farmers of America</b></span></a></li><li><a href="/articles/2009/03/04/news/doc49a56b334adc3117268312.txt"><span class="medium"><b>Nominations for Honesty sought</b></span></a></li><li><a href="/articles/2009/03/04/news/doc49a56b5185a7d552515535.txt"><span class="medium"><b>Spring into action at the Cosumnes River Preserve Workday Extravaganza April 4</b></span></a></li><li><a href="/articles/2009/03/04/news/doc49a56bbc5b751304022900.txt"><span class="medium"><b>Leave No Man Behind – Saturday in Lodi</b></span></a></li><li><a
