SOMETHING IS FISHY WITH SCUSD’s BUDGET
What is going on with our 08 – 09 Budget? Balanced? Original 08-09 Budget: 03/05/09 Budget Update: 03/19/09 Report to County: - $9,760,000 - $16,162,433 $34,254,844 surplus

Where are the 09 – 10 Teacher layoff dollars? By laying off 383 teachers on 3/10/09 a potential decrease of 12 million in salaries is estimated. Yet the 03/19/09 report to the County shows only a 1 million dollars decrease compared to the current year total expected salaries. Are our schools for children learning or rental income earning? Students and their Neighborhood Schools?

Current District Budget = Lose Our Teachers The current negative SCUSD budget does not account for all of the teacher and classified reductions. It continues this year’s 25.7 M increase in supplies from 07, continues consulting charges above 30 M and building improvement near 1 M. Benefits are based on an increase of 7.9%. and ADA is based on 87.1% of enrollment. These choices of assumptions are a giant step backwards to a negative balance. This is the current proposal from which the subtraction of more value is being considered:
Millions (See end page), General Fund, Multiyear Projections, Unrestricted/Restricted Fiscal Year 2008-2009 2009-2010 Income 414.05 408.64 Spending 430.21 420.54 Increase(Decrease) -16.16 -11.48 Certificated Salaries Classified Salaries Benefits Books, Services, Capital Outlay, Other Beginning Balance Ending Balance 180.57 57.79 97.62 94.22 35.64 19.48 179.34 54.75 105.10 81.36 19.48 7.58 2010-2011 411.39 428.43 -17.04 178.77 53.10 113.43 83.15 7.58 -9.46

(Step 1) Save Our Schools The current negative SCUSD budget does not account for all of the teacher and classified reductions. Applying these reductions in full, while waiting to address the 25.7 million increase in supplies from 07, consulting charges above 30 million and building improvement near 1 million as the next priority preserves a positive ending balance with no school closures. This is how this small step towards a positive budget could look:
Millions (See end page), General Fund, Multiyear Projections, Unrestricted/Restricted Fiscal Year 2008-2009 2009-2010 Income 414.05 408.64 Spending 430.21 403.66 Increase(Decrease) -16.16 4.98 Certificated Salaries Classified Salaries Benefits Books, Services, Capital Outlay, Other Beginning Balance Ending Balance 180.57 57.79 97.62 94.22 35.64 19.48 171.40 53.30 97.66 81.36 19.48 24.46 2010-2011 411.39 411.28 .11 170.15 50.22 107.76 83.15 24.46 24.57

2008-09 Parent’s Budget Guide for 4.16.09 (Step 2) Save Our Schools and Our Teachers This positive budget is based on a set of prudent and realistic assumptions. Benefits are based on an increase of 6.55% from the average of the past 7 years after considering the 3.3% increase of the last 3 years. ADA is based on our past average of 92.6% after considering our current 94.7%. A 27 million decrease in supplies to the 2006 level is seen as an achievable priority. Building improvements are also seen as capable of being reduced to the .3 million level of two years ago. These assumptions will balance the budget with no layoffs or school closures. This is how a big step towards a positive budget could look:
Millions (See end page), General Fund, Multiyear Projections, Unrestricted/Restricted Fiscal Year 2008-2009 2009-2010 Income 414.05 408.64 Spending 402.86 401.81 Increase(Decrease) 11.19 6.83 Certificated Salaries Classified Salaries Benefits Books, Services, Capital, Other Beginning Balance Ending Balance 180.57 57.79 97.62 66.88 35.60 46.79 182.32 58.59 101.12 57.39 46.79 53.62 2010-2011 411.39 414.76 -3.37 184.07 59.39 107.74 63.56 53.62 50.25
