Vacaville school leaders to review midterm budget

By From page A5 | March 06, 2014

VACAVILLE — The Vacaville school board will hear a budget update Thursday from Kari Sousa, the associate superintendent of Business and Administrative Services.

Staff is seeking approval for the second interim report and multiyear budget projects. Interim reports are mandated by the state to improve financial awareness and accountability in public school districts. Changes to the district’s operating budget are noted in the second interim report.

Meeting backup material indicates that revenues increased slightly from the first interim report in January but hovered just shy of $84 million. Expenditures for that same time period decreased from just over $89 million to $88.4 million. The reserve amount also increased from $10.6 million to $11.2 million.

Looking ahead, projections show that both revenues and expenditures will continue to climb. The report goes as far as 2016-17 and estimates nearly $98 million in revenue and $91.2 million in expenditures, with a reserve of $19 million.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the Educational Services Center, 401 Nut Tree Road. The report is available at www.vacavilleusd.org.

    I believe it is time to at least provide paper and other supplies to all schools. My wife is a teacher and has to buy her own paper. Maybe less high paid district employees and more to the schools where our priorities are suppose to be.

    That's an idea that hasn't been tried in a long, long time. Less to administration and more to the people who actually do the work. If it works for the schools, maybe the City government could give it a try.
