Description: How will we continue our progress during a challenging economy We are in tough times and need your input and ideas to help us survive the economic crisis we all face More than 80 percent of Californias school district budgets come from the state California funding of schools remains unstable and inadequate In Sac City we have cut more than 90 million from our general fund budget over the past seven years We also saw an overall decline in our K12 enrollment of approximately 10000 students over the last decade That enrollment decline means less funding for our children and schools Despite these budget blows our district scored annual gains in student performance for all groups of children thanks to our dedicated Board of Education staff parents and many community partners Continuous improvement is a hallmark of our district but new gains are threatened if we do not prepare for the continuing economic crisis This requires additional measures to bring in new revenue and reduce expenses To assure a balanced 200809 budget we cut 204 million Because of Californias fiscal crisis we may have to make historic midyear cuts of 5 to 30 million To improve achievement and to prepare for the proposed budget reductions we must look at all possible areas of cost savings and revenue increases Creative scrutiny of district facilities may promise both savings and new revenue Our facilities are assets that can be leased or used for services that boost achievement and help families We may also need to combine or close schools to ensure we can support the best educational program possible and make the best use of our sites We do not want or expect to sell our properties as we do expect to see pupil enrollment grow We do want to better serve our community and do so more effectively and efficiently We need to look at our facilities by area in as many ways as possible Please join in this effort We need your input to make
